WATCH: Gordie Howe’s ‘This Is SportsCenter’ commercial

The news broke early this morning and it touched the hearts of hockey fans across the nation, especially ones right here in the Motor City. Gordie Howe, simply known as ‘Mr. Hockey’ passed away early Thursday morning in Ohio, surrounded by his family.

Gordie wasn’t just a great hockey player, he was an even greater man off the ice. He’s a legend on the ice and one of the greatest players to ever lace up a pair of skates. Howe’s legacy will forever live on in Hockeytown.

Known to have quite the personality, ‘Mr. Hockey’ saw himself take part in a ‘This is SportCenter’ segment and it was simply hilarious, one of the best segments ever done on SportsCenter’s part in the many ‘This Is SportsCenter’ pieces that were constructed by ESPN.

Take a look.

It’s a tough one to take, thinking that Gordie Howe has passed on, but there is one thing that is for sure, he will never be forgotten.
