A high-quality reproduction of artist Dave Hobrecht's original charcoal and pastel painting of all-time hockey great, Detroit Red Wings legend and NHL Hall of Famer, Gordie Howe, Mr. Hockey. Hobrecht’s painting captures the legendary Howe gliding effortlessly up the ice with the puck on his tape, eyes on the goal, in a dimly lit rink in the 1950s. Howe, considered by many to be the greatest hockey player ever and certainly number 2 or number 1B next to Wayne Gretzky, played 32 years of major league hockey – 26 years in the NHL and 6 seasons with the WHA, including his final season at age 52 with the Hartford Whalers in 1979-80. Howe was a 23-time NHL all-star, 4-time Stanley Cup champion with the Red Wings, 6-time Hart Trophy winner as the league’s MVP, and 6-time Art Ross Trophy winner as the league’s top scorer. Howe was truly, Mr. Hockey.
