The month of June, 1988, has to be one of the best months in my book.

First, Mike turned 18. A few days later, it's off to the Montreal Forum. The Minnesota North Stars made Mike their #1 pick. He was only the second American picked #1 in the NHL draft.

I can still sit and remember that day. Mike was holding my hand when they called his name.

"Days like that you will remember the rest of your life."
