Remembering Mr. Hockey: Gordie Howe on Sports Illustrated cover
Gordie Howe is featured on the regional cover of Sports Illustrated in an issue memorializing his life and legendary hockey career.
Howe passed away last Friday at the age of 88. Over his 34-year hockey career, “Mr. Hockey” was named an All Star 23 times, won four Stanley Cup trophies with the Detroit Red Wings and six Hart trophies for being the league MVP. He still ranks second all-time in goals with 801 and fourth in points with 1,850.
The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins are featured on the national cover after winning their first title in seven years.
Also featured in this issue is SI’s Lee Jenkins on the surprising game that saved the Warriors’ postseason.
The Howe cover will be delivered to subscribers in the Detroit metro area and Canada, and will be available in newsstands in Michigan and Canada. The Penguins cover will be delivered to subscribers and newsstands across the rest of the country.
