Mike Modano Opens Up Before HHOF Induction

Modano Mike Dallas Stars HHOF

Mike Modano, on the eve of his Hockey Hall of Fame induction, made sure to stop by MayorsManor for one more lap around the rink. He’s shared so many great stories with us through the years and this special edition of the West Coast Bias podcast is no exception. Among the highlights include – his real thoughts about Jeremy Roenick, opinions of the Joe Thornton captaincy situation, the time Mark Messier taught him a tough lesson, what he would change about the day he was drafted, which NHL player most resembles him in his prime (and it might surprise you), memories of playing against Rob Blake, Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hasek, was Brett Hull’s foot in the crease, best and worst memories of the Olympics, the World Cup of Hockey, the Dallas Stars, Minnesota North Stars, and so much more.

After the Modano interview, be sure to catch our other Hockey Hall of Fame conversation with Rob Blake here. He opens up about a few previously unanswered questions.
