Patrik Elias recently played his 1,000th game in the NHL, all of them with the New Jersey Devils. That got Puck Daddy infographic ace Dan Gustafson of SixteenWins.com wondering about the rest of the players who logged 1,000 or more games with the same franchise. Here's how he broke it down:
Some interesting notes, via Sixteen Wins:
• 52% Are in the N.H.L Hall of Fame
• 13 Centers, 12 Defensemen, 1o Right Wings, 8 Left Wings and 1 Goalie
• Montreal, Toronto and Detroit have the most with 5 players each
• 24 Players have their number retired (or honoured (Maple Leafs)) by their club
• 7 Players are still active
Anything jump out at you?
