‘Mr. Hockey’ earns Free Press title as Michigan’s best sports nickname

Mr. Hockey is attending the draft in New Jersey this Sunday, and the Free Press states that Michiganders have decided that "Mr. Hockey" is the best sports nickname out there:

Detroit sports fans have been having this debate for years now: Howe or Yzerman.We helped settle at least one aspect of the discussion.

The finals of our latest online voting tournament for the best nickname in Detroit sports history featured No. 9 vs. No. 19. While some may think the Internet is for the "young kid," everyone still respects the 85-year-old legend.

Mr. Hockey won with 68% of nearly 2,800 votes.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
