Detroit Red Wings legend Gordie Howe is arguably the greatest man to ever lace up skates, and today would have been his 89th birthday.

Howe passed away last year at the age of 88, and in those years he filled up trophy cases, stat sheets and amazed fans all over the world with his incredible hockey skills. (SLIDESHOW: 13 Times Paulina Gretzky Looked Absolutely Incredible)

There’s no better way to honor the player coined “Mr. Hockey” than the short documentary “Gordie Howe: Life a Legend,” which chronicles the his incredible life.

Howe blazed a trailer that several fellow NHL hall-of-famers would eventually follow. Without Mr. Hockey there is likely no Red Wings dynasty, and perhaps the NHL never becomes the league it is today. (SLIDESHOW: 12 TIMES SPORTS PUNDIT KRISTINE LEAHY LOOKED ABSOLUTELY STUNNING)
