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.
