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
"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
