Hockey legend Gordie Howe suffers stroke

Hall of Famer Gordie Howe, long ago nicknamed “Mr. Hockey” for his legendary toughness, durability and scoring exploits, suffered a serious stroke Sunday and has lost some of the function and strength on the right side of his body, his son, Dr. Murray Howe, told the Detroit News.

The elder Howe, 86, has dealt with many health issues in recent years, including spinal surgery and dementia. Since he suffered the stroke, he has been largely confined to bed at the home of his daughter, Cathy, in Lubbock, Texas.
