MONTREAL - Nine games into the 2019-20 campaign, Brendan Gallagher added another milestone to his ever-growing resume.

On Sunday, the 27-year-old forward reached the 300-point plateau (155G, 145A) for his NHL career with an assist on Phillip Danault's second goal of the game against the Minnesota Wild.

The Canadiens' assistant captain, who accomplished his latest feat in his 497th NHL game, is off to another hot start to the season. He currently sits tied atop the Canadiens' scoring list alongside Max Domi with nine points.

And if history is any incidation, there will certainly be more to come from Gallagher production-wise as the season rolls on.

Blessed with a wicked shot, Gallagher has beaten plenty of goaltenders with some serious heat over the years.

The two-time 30-goal scorer is always a threat to light the lamp.

When it comes to solving netminders, Gallagher also has a penchant for tipping the puck home.

He really is a magician in that department, consistently showcasing his remarkable skill set around the net - along with his willingness to get his nose dirty on a nightly basis.

The Edmonton native has also made his fair share of sweet passes to feed his teammates, too.

Former Habs Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty have been among the long list of beneficiaries of Gallagher's handywork with a hockey puck.

We couldn't close out the Gallagher celebratory highlight-reel without reliving his first career hat-trick on February 21, 2019 against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Bell Centre.

It came in his 467th career NHL game, and it really was a just reward for a player whose relentlessness and grit is off the charts.

Congratulations, Brendan! Here's to milestones aplenty down the road.
