“Mr. Hockey” Gordie Howe suffers stroke

Hall of Fame Hockey player Gordie Howe is resting after suffering a stroke on Sunday in Lubbock, Texas.

The news was reported by his daughter, Cathy, who he was visiting at the time.

The stroke has left the 86-year-old Howe with some lost function on the right side of his body, involving his arm and leg. His speech is slurred but can recognize and identify people he is familiar with.

Howe, who in a 26-year NHL career, was a 23-time All-Star playing in 1,767 games, scoring 801 goals, dishing out 1,049 assists and netting 1,850 points. He led the Detroit Red Wings to four Stanley Cups. Howe also played for the Hartford Whalers before retiring in 1980.

At the time of his retirement, Howe was the NHL leader in career goals and points before Wayne Gretzky broke those records during his career.

THREE STARS OF GAME:

* Jeff Carter, CBJ center: Second hat trick of the season, fourth of career. He’s starting to play well since coming off injured reserve.

* R.J. Umberger, CBJ LW: Had his first Gordie Howe hat trick which is a goal, assist and a fight.

* Rick Nash, CBJ LW: Had plenty of hop-and-skip in his step with a goal and an assist.

GAME NOTES:

* The Blue Jackets revived power-play has been on fire lately. They began the season 0-for-20 and had the worst in the league. Recently, by scoring their 11th power-play goal in the past nine games, has raised their percentage to 30.8 during that time and 20th in the league.

* The Blue Jackets, believe it or not, have the 3rd-most power plays in the NHL with 228.

* The hat trick by Jeff Carter was the second scored by Columbus this season and the 21st in franchise history. It was the 12th hat trick at Nationwide Arena and the first since Matt Calvert’s three goals on February 25, 2011 vs. Phoenix.

* Columbus is 12-for-39 on the power-play for 30.8 percent, the last nine games.

* The CBJ scored the first goal of the game for the 26th time this season and are 12-10-4 in those games.

* Columbus overall vs. San Jose Sharks is 14-26-4 all-time, 11-9-2 at Nationwide Arena.

* There were 14,625 fans in attendance last night.

* Center Antoine Vermette played in his 600th game of his NHL career last night by picking up an assist on David Savard’s goal.

*Center Jeff Carter played in his 500th game of his NHL career last night. It was his second hat trick the past 17 games, the other was December 22 at Nashville.

* Goalie Steve Mason earned his eighth win of the season. It was the 85th overall win of his CBJ career, setting a franchise record for goaltender wins. He was able to achieve the honor in 206 games and broke Marc Denis’ record of 84 wins which was earned in 266 games.

After 26 NHL seasons, three Stanley Cups, the longest-tenured defenseman in the league’s history, Chris Chelios announced his retirement at age 48 on Tuesday.
