ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Mike Modano says he's not sure if his career has reached a conclusion.

If this is the end for the 39-year-old stalwart, Modano is finishing up in the same place where he started.

The NHL's all-time leading American-born scorer was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988 and moved with the team to Dallas in 1993. The Stars were in Minnesota on Saturday to wrap up the regular season against the Wild.

Modano caught up with former North Stars teammate Neal Broten at Xcel Energy Center before the game and reflected on memories of playing in Minnesota, including the improbable run to the 1991 Stanley Cup finals.

Modano's contract expires this summer. He says he needs more time to decide whether to continue playing.
