Country music superstar Garth Brooks honored late Detroit Red Wings legend Gordie Howe during a show last week in Howe's hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

During the show at the SaskTel Centre, Brooks took out a Howe jersey and put it on.

Also, according to CBC, Brooks bought 100 bouquets of flowers to add to the dozens of bouquets at a statue commemorating Howe in front of the SaskTel Centre.

Howe died on Friday at the age of 88. A public visitation is scheduled at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
