Black & White - Kopitar's 1000

Anze Kopitar's road to 1,000 NHL games

A 2-time Stanley Cup Champion, Anze Kopitar's road to 1,000 NHL games, all with the LA Kings, has been a memorable ride

  • 08:07 •

Anze Kopitar laced up his skates for the 1,000th time on Monday as the LA Kings hosted the Calgary Flames. So in the Kings' last regular season game, Kopitar's friends, family and fans came together to celebrate his milestone.

We learned a few things from the occasion:

1. He's pretty, pretty, pretty good at hockey.

2. Not only are his teammates big fans of his, but he has made a LOT of friends along the way, too. 

Look back on Kopitar's journey:
