Kessel breaks NHL consecutive games played record October 26, 2022 - NHL

Phil Kessel played his 990th consecutive NHL game Tuesday, breaking the record held by Keith Yandle, when the Vegas Golden Knights defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2 at SAP Center in San Jose.  

The 35-year-old forward also scored his 400th career NHL goal on his sixth shift of the game.   

Selected by the Boston Bruins with the No. 5 pick in the 2006 NHL Draft, Kessel has 959 points (400 goals, 559 assists) in 1,212 regular-season games for the Bruins, Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Coyotes and Golden Knights. He has 81 points (34 goals, 47 assists) in 96 Stanley Cup Playoff games and won the Cup with Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017.  

Kessel will look to extend his "Iron Man" streak on Friday when the Golden Knights take on the Anaheim Ducks.
