Gordie Howe, 86-Year-Old Hockey Legend Suffers Serious Stroke

Gordie Howe, the 86-year-old Detroit Red Wings hockey legend, is resting at his daughter’s home in Texas after suffering a serious stroke on Sunday, The Detroit News reported.

Howe, known as "Mr. Hockey," has lost some body function on his right side and has difficulty speaking.

"He knows who he is. He knows the people around him. But it is very difficult for him to get up and walk around. So he is pretty much confined to his bed right now. So we're just trying to keep him comfortable, and that's our goal," his son, Dr. Murray Howe, told the newspaper.

Howe has been through several health issues recently, including a spinal surgery over the summer. He's also suffered from dementia for several years, MSN Sports reported.

"We are all on our way to Texas to see Gordie," his son, Marty Howe, told CNN. "He is not looking good but don't give up on him yet."

A member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Howe played for the Red Wings from 1946 to 1971, winning four Stanley Cups, six Hart Trophies (MVP), and six Art Ross Trophies (leading scorer), The Detroit News reported.

Twitter users expressed their support.
