    Former Stars great Mike Modano remarried Sunday night in Dallas.

    The legendary skater announced his engagement to pro golfer Allison Micheletti earlier this summer on his Facebook page, just about a year after announcing his divorce from dancer and singer Willa Ford.

    According to Dallas Morning News pop culture blogger Alan Peppard, Modano and Micheletti were married at Dallas' Joule Hotel with about 150 or so in attendance.

    Notable guests, according to Peppard, were former teammates Brenden Morrow, Darryl Sydor, Marty Turco and, of course, longtime buddy Brett Hull.

    At about noon Sunday, Micheletti tweeted her groom the following message, which he retweeted to his followers.

    In August, 2012, Modano and then-wife Willa Ford announced an amicable split after five years of marriage and about 10 years together.  At the time, they told People magazine that they remained friends and wished each other happiness.

    Modano, a six-time NHL All-Star and three-time Olympian, won the Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars in 1999 and holds several records for the Stars and NHL including having tallied the most career goals among all U.S.-born players. 

    He was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars in 1989 and moved with the team to Dallas in 1993. Since not being re-signed by the Stars in 2010, Modano spent one forgivable season with the Red Wings, in his native Michigan, before returning to the Stars as an executive advisor in 2013.

    The Stars will retire No. 9's jersey and hang it from the rafters in the American Airlines Center in a ceremony March 8, 2014.
