Biography

Michael Thomas Modano, Jr. (born June 7, 1970, in Livonia, Michigan) is a professional ice hockey player for the Dallas Stars. He is now married to Willa Ford.

Playing career

Modano has played all 15 of his NHL seasons with the Stars franchise (the first 5 spent with the Minnesota North Stars). He was the first overall draft pick in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, an honor shared by only 3 other Americans, Brian Lawton (1983), Bryan Berard (1995), and Rick DiPietro (2000).

Modano won the Stanley Cup in 1999 with the Stars. His best seasons were in 1992-93 and 1993-94, when he had 93 points each. The longtime face of the Dallas franchise, he has recorded over 1000 NHL points and became the captain of the Stars in 2003, a position he continues to hold. On August 5, 2005, he signed a 5-year contract with Dallas, which virtually guarantees that he will end his career with the Stars.
