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.
