Ex-North Star Modano marries golfer Allison Micheletti


Former Minnesota North Star and Dallas Star hockey great Mike Modano is off the market.

The Associated Press reports that the Hockey hall of fame star married his fiance golfer Allison Micheletti, in a Dallas ceremony, over the weekend.

After being selected in the first round by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1988 draft, Modano played for the Stars for 21 seasons in both Minnesota and Dallas, then retired from the NHL after one final season with Detroit in 2011.

He just announced his engagement in June on his Facebook page.

Modano scored 561 goals in his career and tallied 1,374 career points, becoming the highest-scoring American-born player in NHL history.
