Mr. Hockey movie: “The Gordie Howe Story” on Hallmark Channel is the incredible legacy of hockey legend Gordie Howe, the only player to have competed in the NHL in five different decades (1940s through 1980s).
Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story (Saturday, May 4, at 9pm ET) on Hallmark Channel is the incredible legacy of Gordie Howe, who, at age 45, returned to the ice after his NHL retirement for the opportunity to play professional hockey and win a championship with his sons. Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) stars as Howe, and Kathleen Robertson (Beverly Hills, 90210) stars as Mrs. Hockey, Colleen Howe, in the inspiring family drama based on a true story. The film is dedicated to Colleen, who used her incredible strength and resilience to broker the deal of her husband’s amazing return to hockey in the newly formed World Hockey Association (WHA) and remarkably become one of the first female sports agents.
