Right-winger Modere "Mud" Bruneteau was a nifty offensive player who ensured himself a permanent place in NHL folklore by ending the longest game in playoff history in 1936. In addition to his overtime heroics, he registered three 20-goal seasons and played on a trio of Stanley Cup championships in Motown.

The native of St. Boniface, Manitoba played two years with the Winnipeg Knights of Columbus then a year with the senior Falcons before turning pro in the IAHL with the Detroit Olympics in 1934-35. He split the 1935-36 season between the minors and the NHL then helped the Wings win the Stanley Cup. In the opening game of the semi-final series versus the Montreal Maroons he scored at 16:30 of the sixth overtime period to end the longest game ever played. Bruneteau's goal was not a classic; rather, it was an ordinary shot more indicative of the fatigue on both teams.

Bruneteau played solid two-way hockey to help the Wings repeat as Cup champions in 1937, the first U.S. club to do so. By the early 1940s, the clever winger took on a more offensive role with the club. He formed a productive line with Syd Howe and Carl Liscombe and helped Detroit win the Stanley Cup in 1943. The next season, he set a personal high with 35 goals and served as the team's co-captain with Flash Hollett. He lost his position by the late '40s and ended spending his last two seasons back in the USHL with the Omaha Knights. After retiring as a player in 1948, he spent a year behind the Knight's bench before leaving the game for good.
