Howe\'s place in hockey\'s record books
   Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, still holds several franchise records,
   including most games played, goals and points.

DETROITGordie Howe turns 85 Sunday and the Red Wings will celebrate Mr. Hockey’s birthday in a special Easter Sunday matinee against the Chicago Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena.

When Howe retired more than three decades ago – his last NHL game came on April 12, 1980, when the Montreal Canadiens defeated him and the Hartford Whalers 4-3 in overtime – he owned league records for games played, goals, assists and points. What’s more amazing is that he retired at age 52.

Howe’s scoring marks have long been eclipsed. But it’s safe to say that there will never be another Gordie Howe … ever. Here is a look at were Howe’s career accomplishments stand in the record books.
