TORONTO — Mr. Hockey’s star has a sizable crack in it — and his family would like it fixed.
Legendary hockey star Gordie Howe’s plaque on Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto’s theatre district has a crack running above the left side bottom corner.
“Sorry to hear the plaque is damaged. I’m sure Gordie was not aware that it was damaged,” his son Marty Howe said in an email to The Canadian Press on Monday.
“I’m sure he and the rest of the Howe family would like to see the plaque fixed,” he said.
The former Detroit Red Wings and Hartford Whalers right winger, four-time Stanley Cup champion, and member of the Hockey Hall of Fame was inducted into the Walk of Fame in 2000.
A number of celebrities’ stars are looking a bit rough around the edges. Meanwhile the city is in the spotlight, hopping with actors, directors and other film industry players who are promoting their latest movies at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Repairs to plaques are shared between the City of Toronto and Canada’s Walk of Fame.
