I am going to take a wild guess. Adam Oates, perhaps?

Martin St. Louis ?

Selanne only has 1 fighting major credited to him. It was against Brad Richardson I believe.

Has 2 in 86-87 according to hockeyfights.com.

St. Louis isn't even listed when you search him...

Mike Modano seems to have 1499 games played, and one fight in October 1990 then never again according to hockeyfights.com

Not sure how accurate that info is.

Paul Kariya and Mats Naslund are two soft players I can't recall fighting althought I don't think either played 1000 games in the NHL.

I could be wrong , didn't bother looking it up.

Fought Brad Miller in '91. Picked up an instigator too.

I don't think this was officially a "fight", but St. Louis did drop the gloves once... with Saku Koivu of all people

I believe that Wayne Gretzky had one fight in his NHL career. I checked, he played 1487 NHL games, so at a minimum, he went 743 games without a fight.

Pretty sure he had one with Tinordi actually, not sure if maybe thats just the same one and written up different but the guy he attempted to fight was actually a pretty tough dude

Naslund was the first guy in on the Hextall-Chelios fight, and he ended up more or less dancing with Ron Sutter and Dave Poulin.

He did a nice job tying up Sutter while Kjell Samuelsson was jumping on top of Bobby Smith. Didn't end up with a penalty of any type out of it, but he was in there.

Dave Keon had one fight in his NHL career and it was on April 7, 1974 in a playoff game no less against Boston's Greg Sheppard. Not too bad considering he played from 1960 to 1974 before he got his first fight. That's about 1000 games give or take there.

Jari Kurri had one fight in his NHL career against Thomas Steen in the 1984 playoffs. From 1984 to the time he retired that's over 900 games. Not bad.

Butch Goring went 1107 NHL games without a fight. Not one. He won the Byng in 1978 and the Conn Smythe in 1981 and is remembered as a tenacious forechecker and two-way player. Yet he had 102 penalty minutes in his career. Amazing how he did that. Has anyone played that many games without a registered fight because I think we have a winner.

I have no idea why, but Jean Ratelle had one fight in his NHL career and it was three months before he retired in 1981. Why he fought then I don't know. But he played 1267 games in his NHL career so that would give him about 1230 without a fight. It appears that is more than Goring overall, but Goring also didn't have a single fight either.

Red Kelly had one single fight in his NHL career in 1964 although it says on hockeyfights.com that he didn't receive a major penalty.

Never mind, I am pretty sure we have a winner here. Johnny Bucyk played 1540 games and never had a fight. Hard to believe, considering he threw a heavy check with no aplogies. Won a Couple of Byngs, had a HHOF career but never fought on record. Can anyone top this? The only active player that can is Jagr, 1408 games, no fights.

I'd have to find a box score, but Jagr possibly had one fight.

Just not a fighting major though. So far no fights on record though. Did they give him 2 minutes for that one? Who knows. But either way, so far Johnny Bucyk is the winner here. Made even more impressive that he wasn't a perimeter player and could play a physical game.

Bucyk probably still wins...

But according to hockeyfights, Dave Andreychuk only had one actual, getting a fighting penalty, NHL fight... and that was vs Geoff Courtnall on March 30th, 1986.

Andreychuk went on to play 18 more fightless seasons.

He had to fight Twinkie cravings for a few years.

Hard to pick up an instigator if you've never received a 5 minute major. 1827 regular season and playoff games. Zero major penalties (he did get a 10 minute misconduct in '96 when he and Tinordi were paired up in a brawl).
