Michael Thomas Modano, Jr. (pronounced /mɵˈdɑːnoʊ/; born June 7, 1970) is an American professional ice hockey player who is currently with the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League. He is the all-time goal-scoring and points leader amongst American-born players in the NHL. He was also the last player on the Dallas Stars roster, and is the last active player in the NHL, that played for the franchise when it was in Minnesota. Modano was drafted 1st overall by the Minnesota North Stars in 1988. The franchise moved after the 1992-93 season. Modano is also one of just two players who played in the NHL in the 1980s who are still active in the NHL (the other is Mark Recchi).

The North Stars selected Modano as the first overall draft pick in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft at the age of 18, an honor shared by only five other Americans: Brian Lawton (1983), Bryan Berard (1995), Rick DiPietro (2000), Erik Johnson (2006), and Patrick Kane (2007). After playing one more season with the Prince Albert Raiders, Modano joined the North Stars for the 1989-90 season and scored his first career NHL goal against Glenn Healy of the New York Islanders.

Modano won the Stanley Cup in 1999 with the Stars, putting together consecutive seasons of over twenty playoff points in 1999 and 2000. He has also played in the 1991 and 2000 Stanley Cup Finals. Modano has also been a finalist for the Calder Memorial Trophy (1990), the Frank J. Selke Trophy (2001), and the Lady Byng Trophy (2003). He controversially lost the Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded to the year's best rookie, to 31-year-old Sergei Makarov, who had already played professionally in the Soviet Championship League for over 12 years; this led to an age barrier of 26 for Calder candidates the following year to the present day.
