Hockey Hall of Famer Gordie Howe had a "mini-stroke" on Saturday night, according to Ansar Khan of

On Oct. 26, the 86-year-old suffered a "pretty bad stroke" while at his daughter's house in Texas.

From the Associated Press:

Mark Howe said his 86-year-old father's vital signs are good and he's aware of the reasons for his condition. He added that an epidural reduced pain stemming from spinal surgery last summer.

"He's unable to walk and his speech is very minimal,'' said Mark Howe, like his father a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. ''After his first stroke, within a week, he was up to walking 40 to 50 feet."

Howe played 32 professional seasons, including 25 with the Red Wings. Howe is the all-time NHL leader in regular season games played and most games played with a single team.
