Mike Modano Signs One-Day Contract With Stars, Set To Retire At 1:00 Friday

The Dallas Stars are signing Mike Modano to a one-day contract at a yearly salary of $999,999 (representative of his number), and Modano will retire from the NHL as a Dallas Star at 1:00 CDT Friday.

Modano spent last season with the Red Wings, but will always be known as a Star. He also has intentions of working with Stars ownership in some fashion once the new owner is in place.

You can catch the press conference announcing his retirement online on KTCK or KESN.
