The latest update on Gordie Howe is very encouraging.

Gordie's son, Marty, told John Fraser of the Saskatoon Media Group that his father is walking under his own power and is scheduled to attend the Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner in Saskatoon, Sask., on Feb. 6th.

Howe won't be the only hockey legend in the room that night, as Wayne Gretzky will be the keynote speaker for what is expected to be Howe's final public appearance.

Howe has been resting at his daughter's home in Texas after suffering a series of strokes.
