Bio

Garry Unger Bio

Two streaks define Unger's NHL career.

The Edmonton native set an NHL record for consecutive games played with 914 from Feb. 24, 1968, through Dec. 21, 1979, breaking the previous mark of 630 held by Andy Hebenton. The streak, still the second-longest in NHL history behind Doug Jarvis' 964, ended when he was benched by Atlanta Flames coach Al MacNeil, the only game he missed that season. Unger said the inspiration for his durability was watching his younger sister, who had polio and was wheelchair-bound.
