His family has said his health has improved after he underwent a stem-cell treatment as part of a clinical trial in Mexico.

His sister, Helen Cummine (COME’-ine), says Howe is excited to return home.

The Hall of Famer played on four Stanley Cup championship teams in Detroit during a 25-year stint that began in 1946.
