David Perron takes milestone games to a whole new level.
On Monday, Perron dressed in his 900th career NHL game and his 600th as a Blue.
Then, with nine seconds left in the game, he netted an assist on Ryan O'Reilly's empty-net goal to record his 600th career point and his 400th with St. Louis.
Four milestones. One game.
Not too shabby.
"Since I've had him, I've really liked him a lot," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said of Perron. "I talk about how competitive he is as a player. There are not many guys that have been around that are more competitive than him."

Perron has spent 10 of his 14 NHL seasons with the Blues. He was drafted by St. Louis in the first round of the 2007 NHL Draft and made the team out of training camp. He played in 340 games before being traded to the Edmonton Oilers in 2013. After two seasons with Edmonton, Perron played in Pittsburgh and Anaheim, then returned to St. Louis. He was lost to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft, but returned to St. Louis for a third stint when he signed a four-year deal with the Blues in 2018.
In 600 career games, Perron has recorded 238 goals and 362 assists (600 points).
Perron becomes the ninth player in franchise history to reach 600 games and 400 points with the Blues, joining Bernie Federko, Brian Sutter, Alexander Steen, Alex Pietrangelo, Brett Hull, David Backes, Garry Unger and Al MacInnis. With a point Monday, Perron has now registered three seasons with 50 or more points.
"He's believed in himself, he's a guy that really works hard," added Jaden Schwartz. "You can see him in practice, he works on little things and in games, he's very, very competitive. I think that's one thing that separates him."
