41 year old Patrick Marleau sets record for most NHL games played

- On Monday night 41-year-old Patrick Marleau set the record for most games played in NHL history with 1768 games. He broke the record previously held by Mr Hockey aka Gordie Howe who played in the NHL from 1945–1971. Howe set the record 59 years ago.
- Marleau currently plays for the San Jose Sharks. He was drafted by the Sharks in 1997 and has also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Pittsburg Penguins.
- He is also the all-time goal scorer in Sharks history and also leads in even-strength goals, power-play goals, points, and shots.
- Marleau is one of the oldest players in the NHL and sadly is yet to win a Stanley Cup. He has won multiple gold medals playing for Canada in international hockey.

Source + me knowing too much hockey trivia
