The legendary Dallas Stars center, and recently named Hockey Hall of Famer, was sized-up, in front of a crowd, for his official HOF jacket.
“It’s a great jacket to get; it’s an honor to be able to wear it, and get it sized means a lot,” Modano explained. “So, it’s a great, fitting end to a career, being inducted.”
Talk about carrying your career on your back; the tailor-made jacket represents Modano’s 21-year career to include a hat-trick of accolades: a Stanley Cup win in 1999; a silver medal at the 2001 Salt Lake City Olympics; and in 2012, an induction into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.
“The hardest part is becoming content with your career; you got the most out of it that you wanted to, you achieve some things, you accomplished some things, and had a chance to win. But certainly, the Hall of Fame puts everything to rest.”
