<span class="txt18Strg">All-Star Profile </span><br /> <br /> <a href="#quick"><b>QUICK FACTS</b></a><br /> <a href="#he"><b>HE SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#they"><b>THEY SAID IT</b></a><br /> <a href="#news"><b>IN THE NEWS</b></a><br /> <a href="#video"><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b></a><br /> <br /> <a name="quick"></a><b>QUICK FACTS</b><br /> Modano, a native of Livonia, MI, became the all-time NHL scoring leader among U.S.-born players Nov. 7, 2007 by tallying his 1,233rd career point, passing Phil Housley. <br /> <br /> He concluded the 2007-08 season with 57 points (21-36-57) in 82 games, reaching the 20-goal mark for the 16th time since he entered the League in 1989-90. The only players with more 20-goal seasons in that time are the New York Rangers' Brendan Shanahan (18) and Vancouver's Mats Sundin (17). <br /> <br /> In his 19th season, has played his entire NHL career with the Stars' organization and is the all-time franchise leader in goals, assists, points, games played, game-winning goals, power-play goals and shorthanded goals. &quot;(I'm) just very lucky and fortunate enough to be around this long and be a part of the game. It's been very good to me. Players, teammates, coaches, all the same, I think it's been a great opportunity, I couldn't have asked for a better situation or organization, in Minnesota and Dallas, and certainly, I feel very fortunate to have played the game for this long.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="he"></a><b>HE SAID IT</b><br /> On his approach to this season: &quot;I think when you feel you've been around for a while, you've been through different scenarios. This isn't any different from when I first started my career, the ups and downs and personnel changes and a lot of changeover in expectations, but at the end, you do what you do individually to try to prepare yourself to play and do what you do best, within the group and within the team system and what we're asked to do from Dave and the coaches. Ultimately, the bottom line is to have fun and enjoy what we're doing. I guess you understand that a little better when you get older.&quot; <br /> <br /> On playing alongside younger teammates, Fabian Brunnstrom and James Neal: &quot;Honestly, it's fun. I love playing with the young kids. They wear off on me. It doesn't seem like such a job when you're out there with them. You see how exciting it is for them, and you get caught up in that.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="they"></a><b>THEY SAID IT</b><br /> Dallas Stars coach Dave Tippett: &quot;I think he's having fun playing. Most nights, he goes out there and has fun and enjoying what he's doing, and he's getting rewarded for it ... the great thing about having a guy like him around is he recognizes the process. There's not a whole lot of panic in him, and he's willing to help the young guys or go to wing or do whatever it takes to help the team win.&quot; <br /> <br /> Dallas Stars teammate Mike Ribeiro on Modano's play this season: &quot;He's been playing great. He's been a factor in the game, still can shoot the puck, too. He's on a good pace and that's what we need. We need guys like that, everyone to step up with all the injuries and it's nice to see Mo doing his thing.&quot; <br /> <br /> <a name="news"></a><b>IN THE NEWS</b><br /> <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hockey/nhl/stars/2009-01-14-modano-surge_N.htm" target="_blank">Modano helps Stars return to playoff contention</a><br /> <a href="http://www.star-telegram.com/stars/story/1130026.html" target="_blank">Modano honored with All-Star pick</a><br /> <a target="_blank" href="http://stars.nhl.com/team/app?articleid=396193&amp;page=NewsPage&amp;service=page">Relaxed Modano Still Contributing</a><br /> <br /> <a name="video"></a><b>VIDEO FEATURES</b><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&amp;id=20149">Modano Feature</a><br /> <a href="http://www.nhl.tv/team/console.jsp?&amp;id=17787">Modano and Dallas Community</a><br /> <br /> <span class="txt14Strg">Career All-Star Game Statistics </span> <div id="asstatsbox" style="border: 1px solid rgb(161, 161, 161); margin: 4px 0px; padding: 0px; float: left; width: 660px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> <table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" class="asstat"> <tbody> <tr class="headrw"> <td>SEASON</td> <td>TEAM</td> <td>Score</td> <td>R</td> <td align="center">GP</td> <td align="center">G</td> <td align="center">A</td> <td align="center">PTS</td> <td align="center">+/-</td> <td align="center">PIM</td> <td align="center">PP</td> <td align="center">SH</td> <td align="center">GW</td> <td align="center">SOG</td> </tr> <tr> <td>1992-93</td> <td>Campbell</td> <td>6-16</td> <td>L</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">1</td> <td align="center">-4</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center">0</td> <td align="center" class="right">3</td> </tr> <tr> <td>1997-98</td> <td>N.
