Retired NHL player Mike Modano, who is most known for being the highest-scoring American-born player in league history, recently got married to professional golfer Allison Micheletti, according to Fox News.

Modano, who was drafted first overall by the Minnesota Northstars on June 11, 1988, married Micheletti on Sunday. Micheletti was born a month after Modano was drafted, according to Fox News.

The pair tied the knot Sunday at the Hotel Jouel in Dallas and according to The Sporting News, they are currently honeymooning in St. Bart's.

Micheletti tweeted the following, showing the happy couple on their wedding day:

Dallas Morning News reported that Modano's former teammates Brenden Morrow, Darryl Sydor, Marty Turco and Brett Hull were all at the wedding, along with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

The marriage is Modano's second, as the former hockey player was wedded to singer Willa Ford for five years until they separated last August.

Micheletti's father Joe does color commentary for the New York Rangers.

Modano played with the Minnesota Northstars from the 1989-90 season until 1993 when the franchise moved to Dallas, and he stayed with the Stars up until his final season where he played with the Detroit Red Wings in 2010-11, which was his final stint in the NHL. Over his 21-year career, Modano played in 1,499 games while notching 561 career goals and 813 assists for 1,374 career points.

Modano won the Stanley Cup with the Stars in 1999 and his #9 jersey will hang from the rafters at the American Airlines Center after the Stars retire his number in 2014.
