With his assist tonight he hits 999 career assists. Only 11 players have hit that marker all-time. He's still one away, but I think its time to start the 1000 assist watch. It's a massive career achievement.
If he plays next year he has a decent chance of beating out Gordie Howe for 8th all-time.
One of the modern all-time greats. Amazing career totals considering he experienced two lockouts and spent three years in the KHL. In his prime nobody could stop him cycling off the the half boards with those tree trunk legs of his and strong body position.
