Mark Howe
Director of Pro Scouting

Mark Howe enters his 20th year as part of Detroit’s front office and his 23rd season overall with the organization.  After ending his professional hockey career on September 28, 1995, Howe joined the Red Wings front office as an assistant to the hockey operations department.  In that capacity he began scouting the International Hockey League and American Hockey League.  His energies, however, were primarily focused on preparing promising young defensemen within the organization for the National Hockey League at the club’s minor league affiliates.

Howe has his name engraved on the Stanley Cup four times.  He was a pro scout for Detroit’s championship runs in 1997, ‘98 and ‘02 and was in his current role as the club’s director of pro scouting for the Wings’ last title in 2008.  Mark has repeated Howe family history as his father, Gordie, won a total of four Stanley Cup titles during his playing career with the Red Wings (1950, ‘52, ‘54 and ‘55).

Playing first in the World Hockey Association and then in the NHL, Howe finished his career as the second-highest scoring defenseman in professional hockey with 1,246 points (197G-545A-742P in 929 NHL games; 208G-296A-504P in 426 WHA games).  Howe played three seasons with the Hartford Whalers and 10 with the Philadelphia Flyers, before returning to his hometown Detroit, inking a free-agent deal with the Red Wings on July 8, 1992.  He finished his playing career in the Motor City, appearing in 122 regular-season games and collecting eight goals and 64 points.

Howe was a First Team NHL All-Star defenseman in 1983, ‘86 and ’87.  In 1985-86, he led the league with a +85 rating, and followed with a +57 rating to pace all NHL defensemen in 1986-87.  He was runner-up for the Norris Trophy in both 1986 and 1987, and was selected to five NHL All-Star Games (1981, ’83, ’85, ’86 and ’88).  For all of his incredible achievements on the ice, Mark was inducted into the National Hockey League Hall of Fame in the player category on November 14, 2011, in Toronto.

Mark currently resides in New Jersey and has three children: Travis, Nolan and Azia.
