Mike Modano – Junior Days

Mike Modano had four goals in 40 games for Red Wings during his final NHL season. He has been called by some greatest American - born player of all time, although fans of Chris Chelios might have something to say about that. But it is hard to deny that Michigan native Mike Modano is greatest American - born forward in history given his accomplishments during 21 NHL seasons. No player born in United States has scored more goals than Modano's 561 or rack up more points than his 1 374. His 1 499 career Games rank second only behind 1 651 among American - born players. Modano also helped Dallas Stars win 1999 Stanley Cup, served as team captain before finishing his career in Detroit with Red Wings and on international stage, winning gold medal in 1996 World Cup and silver medal in 2002 Olympics. Add it all up and it is no wonder Modano could very well be heading to Hall of Fame when Class of 2014 is announced Monday afternoon. Modano is among group of first - year candidates that includes former Red Wings goalies Dominik Hasek and Chris Osgood; Peter Forsberg, who won pair of Stanley Cups in Colorado; and Mark Recchi, who won Cups with three different teams. While Hasek appears to be only genuine lock for induction among that group, Modano's chances seem as good as anyone else on ballot that also includes Eric Lindros, Jeremy Roenick, Dave Andreychuk and Coach Pat Burns. Modano ranks 23 on NHL All - time list for goals and points and every player ahead of him who is eligible is already in Hall of Fame. His 1 499 career Games rank 15 all - time and everybody ahead of him there that is eligible for Hall of Fame has already been induct. Modano, who was born in Detroit suburb of Livonia in 1970, was draft No. 1 overall by Minnesota North Stars in 1988 after averaging 39 goals and 98 points during three Junior seasons with WHL Prince Albert Raiders. He was just second American - bear player ever to go No. 1 overall in draft. Modano never played in minors and spent first five years of his career in Minnesota before franchise moved to Dallas, where he enjoyed his greatest success beginning in 1993 - 94, when Modano had his first and only 50 - goal season. He helped Stars win 1999 Stanley Cup, enjoying best postseason of his career with 10 goals and 23 points in 23 playoff Games. Modano, who holds Star franchise records in virtually every major offensive category, left Dallas in 2010 and returned home to Detroit for one last shot at Stanley Cup. Red Wings Had Won Their Fourth Cup In 11 Seasons Two Years Earlier, Lost In Finals Following Season And Were Considered One Of Top Contenders Again In 2010 - 11.
