Eddie Mio To Run For Mayor Of Windsor?

It appears that former NHL goaltender (and Wayne Gretzky's best man at his wedding in 1988) Eddie Mio is considering running for mayor of Windsor, Ontario.

Mio appears to be very active in the community, although he actually lives across the border in Michigan. I'm sure that would be brought up in the rival campaigns.

Hockey players switching to the political arena is not new by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, a couple of NHL players actually sat in Ottawa as an MP while playing in the NHL! Here's a look at the intertwined history of hockey players and politicians: Change Of Arena.
