Gordie's health had been declining in recent years following his 2012 diagnosis with dementia. He then suffered two debilitating strokes in October 2014.
Throughout his iconic NHL hockey career, Gordie — who played for the Detroit Red Wings for 25 of his 26 professional seasons — earned records for being the second all-time leading goal scorer and pro with the most games (1,767) and seasons played.
