and Karen Modano brought their third child, Michael Thomas
Modano into the world on June 7, 1970 in Highland, Michigan.
Michael was the youngest of three as he has two older sisters.
Mike loved playing football, tennis, golf, and hockey as he
grew up but eventually settled on hockey as he was attending
high school at Prince Albert High School. Mike has always
worn #9 through his minor and major league career as a tribute
to Gordie Howe. Right out of high school and barely 18, Mike
was drafted to the North Stars in June of 1988 and was then
transferred along with the franchise to Dallas before the
93'-94' season. Mike loves living in Dallas and hopes to eventually
retire here. <back
