NEW YORK (AP) - Hockey great Gordie Howe has a book deal.
G.P. Putnam's Sons announced Monday that Howe's memoir, ''Mr. Hockey,'' will come out Oct. 14. The publisher says the book will be ''the definitive account'' of Howe's life, starting with his birth in a farmhouse in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan and delving into his extraordinary five-decade career.
The 85-year-old Howe was a six-time winner of the Hart Trophy for the league's most valuable player and played on four championship teams with the Detroit Red Wings.
Putnam is an imprint of Penguin Random House. Last year it released Bobby Orr's memoir.
