Marty Gordon Howe (Born February 18, 1954 in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.) is a former professional ice hockey defenceman. Howe was drafted in the third round, 51st overall in the 1974 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens. From 2001 to 2006, he was an assistant coach for the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. He is the son of Colleen and Gordie Howe, brother of Mark Howe and nephew of Vic Howe.
He started his junior career with the Toronto Marlboros of the OHA (now the OHL). In 1973, he chose to join his father Gordie, and brother Mark to play with the Houston Aeros of the WHA. Even thought he was drafted by the Canadiens by 1974, he would not play in the big league until 1979, when the WHA joined the NHL.
