Mike Modano needs no introduction in the hockey world. He is the all-time goal-scoring and points leader among American-born players in the NHL. Modano, the third child and only son of Michael Sr. and Karen Modano, was born and raised in Michigan. His records speak for themselves, most notably his 1999 Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars, and his silver in the 2002 Winter Olympics and championship at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Off the ice and away from hockey, Modano is an ambassador in the community and is about to take on the biggest role of his life.
Kathryn Tappen: Congratulations! You and your wife Allison (professional golfer Allison Micheletti, daughter of former NHL player and MSG TV analyst Joe Micheletti) are expecting twins in July! How are preparations going?
Mike Modano: It's a work in progress. Trying to get prepared, get the rooms ready. We still have some time before the end of July to get everything ready. We will be real fine-tuned by then. It's exciting. It's another chapter to look forward to for myself and us. We can't wait to meet them.
