Livonia, Michigan native Modano going home to Red Wings

Mike Modano was not ready to hang up his skates when Dallas didn’t offer him a contract extension. So after much thought and conversations with Detroit, Minnesota and San Jose, he decided it was time to play for his favorite boyhood team, the Detroit Red Wings.

The native of suburban Detroit has signed a one-year deal with the Red Wings. The agreement ended five weeks of Modano trying to figure out his future in hockey.

Modano, who is a 40-year-old forward, played 20 seasons for the Minnesota-Dallas franchise and is the leading scorer among U.S.-born players in the NHL history.

The Dallas Stars are trying to get younger and also did not retain long-time goaltender Marty Turco.

Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars has spent the recent hockey season wondering if he should keep playing or should he retire.

It’s been a week since he completed his 20th full NHL season, and with his contract with the Stars ending, Modano has said the he plans to take some time before decidingĀ  his future. He is also part of a group seeking ownership of the Stars, who are being sold by ThomasĀ  Hicks’ financially challenged Hicks Sports Group.

The Stars missed the playoffs for the second season in a row, the first time that has happened since relocating from Minnesota 17 years ago.

Last summer, Mike Modano needed only a month to decide to come back for a 20th season, but this time there is no guaranteed contract for him.

This time around, he doesn’t have a contract for next season and has not spoken with general manager and former teammate Joe Nieuwendyk about a new one.

The number 1 overall draft pick by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988, Modano was the last player remaining on the Stars from when the team moved south to Dallas.

In 1,459 career games, Modano has 557 points and 802 assists for 1,359 points, all team records. He had 14 goals and 16 assists this season.

But at his age, Mike Modano is not expected to be Dallas’ primary scorer anymore. Brad Richards was seventh in the NHL with 91 points, and players like Loui Eriksson and Mike Ribeiro are capable of scoring as well.
