Gordie Howe, the Hall of Fame hockey player who, according to one story, "scored 975 goals in 2,186 games for four teams in two leagues - during a professional career that spanned 32 seasons from 1946 to 1980," passed away Friday at age 88. The 23-time NHL All-Star - who accumulated 500 stitches just in his face over the course of his career - had been suffering from dementia since 2012, and had two strokes in 2014.
