The NHL’s top couple is calling it quits.

Willa Ford, the celebrity wife of former Stars and Red Wings superstar Mike Modano, announced the two were getting a divorce after five years of marriage.

You might recall it was Ford who helped fire up Stars fans two summers ago that she wanted Modano to sign with Detroit to stick it to Dallas. See, this has more to do with hockey than you thought!

Perhaps now we’ll have more time to spend with Modano while he has fun sharing his exploits on Twitter, meaning we’ll get more awesomely awful photographs like this one.

    Based on that picture, he might want to consider couples counseling.

    Willa’s always been smoking. She’ll easily move on from Modano.

    I can’t believe a marriage to a girl the crazy guy from Backstreet Boys dumped for being crazy didn’t work out.

    Can’t say I am shocked by this news. At least Ms. Ford got a nice rack out of the union.

    Mike, no worries at 31 years old she’s past her prime. You might want to try Paulina Gretzky. She’ll be ok for a few years.

    @empororzero i meant like normal people like mothers and fathers of children , what I meant was Hollywood marriages always end up like this , normal marriages ( what I’m meant to say “you people” ) ends up fine and is a real marriage not fake and just for the money
