A Game For The Ages

October 15, 1973
Two years after retiring from the NHL, 45-year old Gordie Howe realizes his lifelong dream by playing with his two sons, Mark and Marty. He does so as a member of the Houston Aeros in the upstart WHA. Gordie scored 21 seconds into his first shift, son Mark earned the assist.
The Howes
Quotable:
"It feels like playing with any other hockey player, except he's so much better. But the only time he's my Dad is when he's hurt."
- Mark Howe
