Mike Modano Retirement Press Conference At 1:00pm CDT

Please remember, Stars fans, that NHL Network will be carrying Mike Modano's retirement press conference live from the Ritz Carlton in Dallas. Dallasstars.com will also be streaming the press conference live and so will NHL.com, so set your DVR or otherwise make arrangements to watch it live.

It will be live on Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket as well.

As an added bonus, there will also be a Mike Modano special airing on the NHL Network tomorrow night at 5:00pm CDT. Here is the press release for that...

Tomorrow, September 24, at 6 p.m. ET, NHL Network will air a special tribute to the life and career of the NHL's most prolific American-born player titled "Mike Modano: American Icon." It depicts Modano's emergence as the face of a franchise and chronicles his evolution as a player -- from childhood through becoming the first overall draft pick in 1988 by Minnesota to the Stars' relocation in 1993 through his final game in a Dallas Stars uniform in 2010. Family, friends and former teammates share their thoughts about Modano, his contribution to the game and how he'll be remembered.

We'll use this post as a kind of gameday thread for the press conference if you want to talk about it live or afterward, though, I don't know how some of you will be able to textualize your weeping, sobbing and swooning.
