"Simply the best Dallas Star to ever put on the jersey. It's going to be a lot of years before anyone comes around like Mike Modano again. He is the epitome of what it is to be a Dallas Star." -- Steve Ott
During his 21 NHL seasons -- 20 of which were spent as either a Minnesota North Star or Dallas Star, Mike Modano epitomized exactly what the face of a franchise should be.
In 1,499 NHL games, he finished with 1,374 points, the most ever for an American-born player. He was an eight-time NHL All-Star and part of the Stars' Stanley Cup-winning team in 1999.
