Modano Back To Where His NHL Career Started

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,

Modano will be honored by the Wild during a video tribute during the second TV timeout (first non-icing or goal stoppage after the 10-minute mark of the first period). It’s his call, but it appears as if at some point tonight Modano will slip on a North Stars sweater. It’s unknown if that will be in warmups, during a stoppage or after the game. He said maybe “during the game,” but I emailed Bill Daly and he says that request hasn’t been asked yet or considered.

I don’t see how he’d be allowed to wear it during the game (he wore seven or so Stars sweaters during his home finale the other day), if for no other reasons than Reebok sponsors NHL jerseys.

Modano reunited with former North Stars/Stars teammate Neal Broten this morning during a hilarious conversion that took place for about 25 minutes with us media and others contributing. Some great lines.
