Mike has enjoyed both team and individual success with the Dallas Stars. In
the 1998-99 season, Mike led the Stars for the most coveted trophy in
professional sports, the Stanley Cup. In February of 2001, Mike broke the
franchise record for total career points, scoring number 868 in front of an
enthusiastic home crowd. He also holds the franchise record for career goals and
assists. In the Stars’ first game of 2002, Mike scored career goal
number 400, making him one of only four American-born players in NHL history to
have reached that milestone. That same year, he was awarded the USA Hockey Bob Johnson Award presented by Nike. This award recognizes excellence in international hockey
competition for a specific year. This offensive firepower, combined with his
lightening quick, full-throttle skating style, makes Mike a consistent favorite with fans, who have selected him as an NHL All-Star six times. In 2003, he reached 600 assists, 1,000 games, 1,000 points. Also in 2003, he became team captain for the Dallas Stars.
He was selected for Team USA in the 1998 Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan, and again represented the United States in
the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City, where the USA won a silver medal.
While Mike is committed to his sport, his country and his team, he is equally
passionate about his personal responsibility to give back to his local community. He has given time and energy to many organizations throughout his career.
One of his personal goals was to build something lasting, and in 2000 was proud to establish the Mike Modano Foundation. The Mike Modano Foundation allowed Mike to take a more aggresive and active role in helping children in-need.
