Stars Power Countdown: 90 Days

Good afternoon, Stars fans. Today is another day closer to the season opener and the countdown is still live. 90 days until the season opener against the Chicago Blackhawks at the AAC.

Today’s short post is about two new little human beings to this Earth, their names are Jack and Kate Modano!

Yes its true. Around 12:30 yesterday afternoon, Allison Modano gave birth to twin babies!

The two were married back on September 1st, 2013, and have been expecting since mid October. Jack weighed in at six-and-a-half pounds, while Kate pulled off six pounds even. This is the first children for either of them. The mother and children were both reported to be well. The babies were born just two days after their mother.

Mike Modano talked about how he viewed fatherhood and how thankful he was for all his parents did for him. He said that he was hoping that neither kid would share the same story that he endured throughout his life.

Modano said, “That story’s been beat like a horse about how I was and how hockey really turned me around. But lot of the same, they worked and they did things to allow me to play hockey. That’s what they woke up and did every day, so there’s a lot of respect for that now that I know what’s ahead of me and what we’re going to be going through. I look forward to it. It’s going to be fun. My guess is probably grow up and play hockey.”

So if it does end up working out, who’s ready to see Jack Modano suiting up in Victory Green in, let’s say, 2027?

Comments below and Go Stars. The countdown continues to tick. 90 days, see ya then Chicago.
