Equipment managers are the unsung heroes of hockey teams, so the New York Rangers put together a unique celebration for Cass Marques' 1,500th NHL game Sunday.

Marques was honored during the first period of the Rangers game against the Washington Capitals at Madison Square Garden. In addition to a video and stick taps from the players, goalie Henrik Lundqvist wore a mask specific to the occasion with the jersey numbers of some of the best Rangers Marques has worked with over the years.
