Before “The Great One”, Wayne Gretzky, there was Gordie Howe, “Mr. Hockey.” While Gretzky’s statistics are beyond compare, Gordie Howe made his mark with his remarkably long career, physical play and of course his scoring ability. He made his NHL debut in 1946 at the age of 18 and didn’t hang up his skates for good until 1980, playing his final season at the age of 51. While some of his scoring records have been surpassed, his legacy will always live on. An immensely popular figure, both as a player and in his retirement days, it’s easy to understand why when you hear one of his more famous quotes, “I try to be respectful to the game of hockey and its followers. That’s because some wise old man told me if someone is interested enough in you to ask for your autograph, you should be interested enough to sign it.” Not many athletes today have that kind of humble attitude.
If you are interested in Mr. Hockey, contact TSE today and we’ll start the process of arranging for a Gordie Howe endorsement or Gordie Howe speaking appearance. We have a capable and experienced staff ready to get to work for you.
**Gordie Howe Speaker**

**Gordie Howe Appearance**
Perhaps the most amazing record on his resume is the 2,421 Gordie Howe appearances in professional games (NHL and the defunct WHA). Like Cal Ripken Jr.’s consecutive game record or Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, you could live 10 lifetimes and never see that record broken.
