Mike Modano, who led the Dallas Stars to their first and only Stanley Cup title in 1999, will be honored with a statue outside American Airlines Center this weekend.

The intrigue: The statue showcases "Modano's speed and grace that were synonymous with his Hall of Fame career," per the NHL.

If you go: The statue will be unveiled at 4pm Saturday at PNC Plaza before the Stars game against the L.A. Kings. Say hi to the Dirk Nowitzki statue.
