TSN Archives: Gordie Howe, at 42, yields to injury (Jan. 2, 1971)

This story, by Bill Brennan, first appeared in the Jan. 2, 1971, issue of The Sporting News, under a headline (“At 42, Even Iron-Man Howe Yields to Injury”) that was particularly prescient. Ironically, it wasn't the rib-cartilage injury chronicled here but rather a chronic wrist injury that forced the Detroit icon’s (first) retirement later that year, after 25 seasons with the Red Wings. This story introduced TSN readers to Howe’s older hockey-playing sons, Mark and Marty, who in 1973 would sign with the Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association, joining with their father, who at 45 signed with the Aeros and led them to WHA championships in 1974 and ’75.

Jets' Logan Stanley: Gordie Howe hat trick in win

Stanley scored the game-winning goal to go with an assist and a fighting major in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Golden Knights. Not only did Stanley score his first goal of the season in the second period, but he also fought Keegan Kolesar and assisted on Kyle Connor's goal in the first, giving the hulking defenseman a Gordie Howe hat trick. For the cherry on top, Stanley's goal turned into the game-winner when Vegas got a couple goals back with a third-period push. It's a night to remember for the 23-year-old blueliner, but not one he can expect to repeat often.

Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Just shy of Gordie Howe hat trick

Toews scored twice and picked up a fighting major in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Senators. The goals were sweet, but we all held our breath with the fight. Toews came out on the losing end in the tilt with Zach Sanford and he took a couple hard fists to the head. He missed the month of February due to concussion and has only been back six games. Sunday morning may tell the tale based on those hits to the head. That aside, Toews has points in his each of his last three games (three goals, one assist). It's a modest streak but a streak nonetheless. And that's significant for a once-great forward who has scuffled mightily since missing a full season to illness.

Jets hang for spirited win over Canadiens on back of Scheifele's Gordie Howe hat trick

WINNIPEG — Come for the offensive outburst, stay for the friendly banter. After one of the wildest games of the Winnipeg Jets' season – a topsy-turvy tilt that featured three four-goal swings and ended with an 8-4 victory over the Montreal Canadiens – the sight of Pierre-Luc Dubois and Mark Scheifele sitting together at a podium and needling one another was an important moment.

Bruins' Nick Foligno: Earns Gordie Howe hat trick

Foligno scored a goal on four shots, dished an assist and added a fighting major in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Ducks. Foligno got the fight out of the way early, dropping the mitts with Sam Carrick just 2:20 into the game. Shortly after the major expired, Foligno tipped in a Brandon Carlo shot to tie the game at 1-1, and he helped out on Carlo's second-period marker to complete the Gordie Howe hat trick. This was Foligno's second multi-point effort of the season. The winger's at nine points, 95 hits, 40 PIM, 59 shots on net and a minus-8 rating in 37 contests overall.

Rangers' Ryan Strome: Goal short of Gordie Howe hat trick

Strome dished out a power-play assist while adding three shots, two blocked shots and a fighting major in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Panthers. Strome had an eventful night in his final action before the All-Star break. Soon after feeding Chris Kreider for a deflection at the far post on the rush, Strome took a blindside hit from Mason Marchment late in the second period. Marchment somehow avoided a penalty on the play, but Strome took exception to the borderline hit and challenged Marchment in the third. The 191-pound Strome was the clear victor in the scrap against the much bigger Marchment, who's listed at 6-foot-4 and 209 pounds. With 34 points through 43 games, New York's second-line center is on pace to eclipse 60 points for the first time, though Strome would likely have done so in each of the previous two seasons, had they been full-length campaigns.

Rangers' Jacob Trouba: Back-to-back Gordie Howe hat tricks

Trouba scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, racked up seven PIM, blocked four shots and added three hits in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche. Trouba notched both of his points in the first period before unleashing a massive hit for the second straight game on Nathan MacKinnon. The 27-year-old Trouba immediately answered for the hit by fighting Gabriel Landeskog. With Gordie Howe hat tricks in consecutive games, Trouba has been filling the stat sheet for his fantasy managers. He's up to 14 points -- surpassing last year's production -- with 63 shots on net, 74 hits, 54 blocks, 38 PIM and a plus-3 rating in 25 contests overall.
