Hockey legend Gordie Howe dies at 88

The legendary Detroit Red Wings player Gordie Howe has died.

He was 88.

Howe played more than 1,700 games in the NHL and scored more than 800 goals. He is widely known simply as "Mr. Hockey."

In Detroit, he is a legend. He won the Stanley Cup with the Red Wings four times, won six Hart Trophies as the league's most valuable player, and won six Art Ross Trophies as the leading scorer during his time with Detroit between 1946 and 1971.

He still holds numerous team records.

Last year, Howe's family said he underwent stem cell treatment after he suffered a stroke. The family said he had a "miraculous" recovery after he underwent the treatment.
