DETROIT — Mike Modano will wear No. 90 this season with Detroit. He’s the first player to have that number in the franchise’s history.
Modano joked Friday saying he asked Ken Holland to speak to Gordie Howe about allowing him to wear the No. 9, which he wore for nearly his entire career with the Stars.
“I asked Kenny and he said he I’m not going to make that call,” Modano laughed. “That’s about the only thing he has said no to.”
