Pro Career 1989 present
Mike Modano has played all 18 of his NHL seasons with the Stars franchise. At the age of 17, he was selected by the Minnesota North Stars as the first overall draft pick in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, an honor shared by only 5 other Americans: Brian Lawton (1983), Bryan Berard (1995), Rick DiPietro (2000), Erik Johnson (2006) and Patrick Kane (2007). Modano's first career NHL goal was scored against Glenn Healy of the New York Islanders.
Modano won the Stanley Cup in 1999 with the Stars, putting together consecutive seasons of over twenty playoff points in 1999 and 2000. He has also played in the 1991 and 2000 Stanley Cup finals. Modano has also been a finalist for the Calder Memorial Trophy (1990), the Frank J. Selke Trophy (2001), and the Lady Byng Trophy (2003). He lost the Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded to the year's best rookie, to 31-year-old Sergei Makarov; because of this, the NHL imposed an age barrier for Calder candidates the following year. Modano's best statistical seasons were in 199293 and 199394, when he had 93 points each. During the 199394 season, the franchise's first in Dallas, Modano recorded a personal-best 50 goals. His career high for points in a game is 6 (246) against the Anaheim Ducks. Modano has 7 career hat tricks. Modano's only career fight was against Rod Brind'Amour. The long-time face of the Dallas franchise, he has recorded over 1,000 NHL points and became the captain of the Stars in 2003. During the 2005 offseason, Modano contemplated signing with the Boston Bruins, but decided to stay with the Dallas Stars after owner Tom Hicks got involved.
On August 5, 2005, Modano signed a 5-year contract extension with Dallas. On September 29, 2006, he was replaced as the Stars' captain by Brenden Morrow, and is now an alternate captain, a role in which he had previously served from 1995 to 2003.
Modano is also the only remaining North Stars player currently with the Dallas Stars. Jere Lehtinen, who was drafted in 1992 when the franchise was still in the Twin Cities, never played an NHL game until the 199596 season, more than two years after the move.
On January 21, 2007, the NHL announced Modano as the Special Ambassador to the 2007 NHL All-Star Celebration, thanks to his numerous contributions towards bringing the 55th National Hockey League All-Star Game to Dallas and also for his contributions to Dallas hockey as a whole. Modano, the Stars' all-time leader in several statistical categories and a member of the franchise for the entirety of his 17-year career, appeared at selected All-Star events and dropped the puck in a ceremonial face-off prior the game on January 24, 2007.
Modano scored his 500th career regular-season goal on March 13, 2007 with 10:24 left in the 3rd period in a regulation win against Antero Niittymaki of the Philadelphia Flyers with assists by Antti Miettinen and Jon Klemm. He is only the 14th goal scorer to score 500 goals with a single team and the 39th player to reach 500 goals overall.
On March 17, 2007 in an away game versus the Nashville Predators, Modano scored his 502nd and 503rd career regular-season goals in a 32 loss, thus passing Joe Mullen's NHL record (502) for most goals scored by an American-born player. The Predators organization drew criticism from around the league after failing to mention the breaking of this record.
Modano also holds the NHL all-time record for most points scored by a U.S. born player. He broke the record, which previously belonged to Phil Housley, on November 7, 2007 by scoring two goals in the first five minutes, with the record-breaker being a short-handed goal on a breakaway, against the San Jose Sharks. That night, amongst his congratulatory phone calls was one from Air Force One, where he and a fellow Texan, President George W. Bush, spoke for a few minutes about the record.
November 21, 2007 was "Mike Modano Tribute Night" at American Airlines Center, where Modano was honored by the franchise for his achievements in U.S. hockey. Those who spoke in the pre-game ceremony included Brett Hull, Joe Mullen, Phil Housley, and Stars owner Tom Hicks. Capping off an emotional night, Modano later went on to score the game-tying goal in a 21 victory against the Anaheim Ducks.
Modano has indicated in interviews that he intends to play out the duration of his current contract, which expires after the 20092010 season. After doing so, he will take his career on a year-to-year basis, move into a front office position with the Stars similar to Co-General Manager Brett Hull, or move on without hockey altogether.
