Marleau becomes 6th player in NHL history to play 800 straight games
Patrick Marleau achieved a major milestone on Tuesday night.
The San Jose Sharks forward became only the sixth player in NHL history to suit up for 800 straight regular-season contests.
Marleau hasn't missed a regular-season game since 2008-09. The 40-year-old has now played 1,669 career contests, which ranks fifth in league history.
He signed with the Sharks on Oct. 9 after two seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Marleau spent his first 19 NHL campaigns with San Jose.
