Client: Herb Brooks Foundation Gala
Direct Sportslink has secured numerous sports celebrities for the annual Herb Brooks Foundation Gala. We secured Gordie Howe as the keynote speaker along with Bobby Hull to join Gordie. Two of the most accomplished hockey players ever in the same room for an evening made for a widely successful event as Gordie auctioned off his tie for big bucks!
It was a great pleasure working with Direct Sportslink. They made my job of planning the Herb Brooks Foundation gala much easier with their expertise, ideas and organizational skills. Direct Sportslink was able to secure our speakers (Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull) in a timely manner, and they even came to our event to ensure the success of our gala! I will definitely work with them again, and I now consider Ward Headley, President of Direct Sportslink, a great new friend. Thank you.

Gordie Howe, known as "Mr. Hockey", made his NHL debut in 1946 at the age of 18, playing right wing for the Detroit Red Wings. He quickly established himself as a great goal scorer and a gifted playmaker. Using his great physical strength, he was able to dominate the opposition in a career that spanned five decades. In a feat unsurpassed by any athlete, in any sport, Gordie Howe finished in the top five in scoring for twenty straight seasons. It was said that a Gordie Howe hat trick was a goal, an assist, and a fight.
At the time of his retirement, Gordie Howe's professional totals, including playoffs, for the NHL and WHA combined, were first. He finished with 2421 games played, 1,071 goals, 1,518 assists, and 2,589 points. Wayne Gretzky since passed him in goals (1,072), assists (2,297), and points (3,369), but not games played (1,788). It is unlikely that anyone will surpass Howe's total professional games played. Mark Messier retired only 11 NHL games behind Howe at 1,756, but this is still a far cry from 2,421 total professional games.
Howe has been married to Colleen Joffa since April 15, 1953; two of their sons, Marty and Mark, were his teammates on the Houston Aeros and the Hartford Whalers. Colleen is the founder of the Detroit Junior Red Wings, the first junior hockey team in the U.S.
