Gordie Howe was one of nine children of Katherine and Albert Howe; he started playing ice hockey at the age of eight. He wasn’t interested in school, and decided to quit during the Depression, and began working in construction instead. Gordie played hockey with the King George Athletic Club in the early ‘40s, before the Detroit Red Wings scout noticed him and invited him to join their training camp.
Howe joined the Wings’ junior team and later the Omaha Knights, where he impressed with 48 points in 51 matches. In October 1946, Gordie made his NHL debut, and already two years later, he made it to his first All-Star game. Howe repeated that in 1949, while in 1950, the Detroit Red Wings and Howe won the Stanley Cup, defeating the New York Rangers in seven games. The following season, Gordie won the Art Ross Trophy, was the NHL Goal scoring leader and, naturally, made it to another All-Star event. The Red Wings swept the Montreal Canadiens in the 1952 Stanley Cup Finals, while Howe received the Hart Memorial Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, and once again, he was the NHL goal scoring leader. Overall, Gordie led the league in goals on five occasions, received the Art Ross Trophy six times, and the Hart Memorial Trophy six times as well. In 1954, he won his third Stanley Cup after the Red Wings beat the Canadians in seven matches, and the same happened the next season, with Howe scoring the series-winning goal.
Gordie Howe stayed with the Red Wings for the following 16 seasons, but they failed to win the Cup again in that span. He led the NHL in points on seven occasions, four times in goals, and three times in assists. Howe retired after the 1970-71 season, but then returned to play for the Houston Aeros in the World Hockey Association in 1973. He won two AVCO Cup titles until 1977 when he moved to the New England Whalers. In 1980, Howe returned to the NHL and joined the Hartford Whalers, appearing in 80 games and recording 41 points, after which he retired for good.
Regarding his personal life, Gordie Howe was married to Colleen from 1953, and had three sons and a daughter with her. Two of his sons, Marty and Mark, were also a professional hockey player, while Mark followed his father’s steps and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011. Howe suffered a major stroke in late October 2014, and two years later he died at the age of 88. He will be remembered as one of the best hockey players who ever played the game.
