NEW YORK (Sept. 23, 2011) – As Mike Modano, the highest-scoring U.S.-born player in NHL history, announces his retirement from the National Hockey League today, NHL Network and NHL.com will provide comprehensive coverage of the event and celebrate his stellar, 21-season career.

 

Coverage begins today with a live broadcast of Modano’s retirement press conference at 2 p.m. ET on NHL Network that also will be streamed live on NHL.com and Dallasstars.com.
