Hockey legend Gordie Howe dies at 88

Hockey icon Gordie Howe, known as "Mr. Hockey," died Friday morning at his son's house in Ohio. He was 88 years old. Howe played 25 season for the Detroit Red Wings from 1946 to 1971, during which the team won four Stanley Cups and Howe won six Hart Trophies as the team's MVP and six Art Ross Trophies as the team's leading scorer. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972.

Howe's health had been declining for "several years," The New York Post reports, and he suffered a stroke in 2014.
