Not quite – but he’s been thinking about it. In a discussion with ESPN he says that retiring from hockey is a tough decision, one that he’s been considering but has not made yet.
Former Dallas Stars forward Mike Modano said he’s still mulling whether to retire and will make a decision by the middle of September. But the 41-year-old has been exploring his options for when his playing days are done.
“It’s tough to think about letting go because it’s been a part of your life since you were a kid,” Modano said Friday. “You have to see how you feel and how much you want to do it. I’m still on the fence.”
Modano said he’s talked with several of the league’s television broadcast partners about the possibility of working on the air but isn’t sure what might be available. That includes Fox Sports Southwest, which broadcasts most of the Stars’ regular-season games.
