NHLPanini America will produce a special 10-card Mike Modano hockey card set that will be distributed at Dallas Stars home games. The promotional series will honour the former captain who will have his no. 9 retired by the franchise on Saturday, Mar. 8, 2014.

Fans attending the Saturday night game will receive a nine-card Mike Modano pack, with each card featuring a career highlight as picked by Modano himself.

“For this special tribute, Modano himself selected the nine moments to feature while meeting with Panini America’s Scott Prusha during the Panini VIP Party in Toronto last November,” wrote Tracy Hackler via Panini America’s The Knight’s Lance.

While nine cards will be distributed on Saturday night, a 10th card to complete the set will be distributed almost one week later on Friday, Mar. 14. The 10th card will feature a photo from the Mar. 8 jersey retirement ceremony.

Modano was captain of the Dallas Stars when the franchise won the Stanley Cup in 1999. Just last year as part of the franchise’s 20th anniversary celebrations, he was named to the Stars’ All-Time team.
