Over and over again.
Modano's wife, actress-singer Willa Ford, portrayed the role of Chelsea, one of the many victims of the notorious, knife-wielding silver-screen slasher Jason Voorhees, in the upcoming remake of the original Friday The 13th movie.
The movie was filmed last summer in Austin, Tex., about three hours south of Dallas.
"As soon as the playoffs were over for us, I went down to Austin, hung out for a week and watched the filming," Modano said.
"I met all the cast and kind of got it explained to me how everybody was going to get killed."
Including the demise of his bride.
Not to spoil it for anyone, but Ford meets her bitter end in a watery grave.
Come on, it's a slasher movie after all.
What did you expect?
"She's excited about it," said Modano, who collected two assists as Dallas downed the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 Thursday at Joe Louis Arena.
"It's her first major motion picture."
There's a bizarro world sense of irony to it all, the thought of a guy in a goalie mask terrorizing a member of Modano's family.
With more goals (542) and points (1,315) than any American-born
National Hockey League player, the Livonia, Mich.-born Modano, 38, has done his fair share of terrorizing guys in goalie masks.
In an even stranger development, the killer in the goalie mask and the Modanos grew close during film- ing.
"I had dinner with Mike and Willa," said Derek Mears, who portrays Jason in the film. A native of Bakersfield, Calif., Mears, 36, admitted his hockey-playing experience was limited to Nintendo.
