San Jose forward Patrick Marleau broke Gordie Howe’s NHL record for career games played, appearing in his 1,768th on Monday (19 April) a X-X Sharks win/loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.
Marleau is in his 23rd NHL season. He made his debut on 1 October, 1997, at 18 years and 16 days old, which made him the youngest player in the league since Lee Wharton debuted at 17 years, 81 days in 1945 for the New York Rangers.
The 41-year-old Marleau has 566 goals, 1,196 points, three All-Star appearances and two Olympic gold medals for Canada in 2010 and ’14.
Howe also played in 419 games in the World Hockey Association that are not included in his career total.
