Rangers defenseman Greg de Vries has unquestionably been one of the most reliable, consistent blueliners in the National Hockey League over the past few seasons. So it is to nobody's surprise that the 6-2, 209-pounder has appeared in 188 consecutive games, tying for the ninth longest streak among active NHLers.
de Vries, who signed with New York as a free agent on July 14, 2003, has collected a pair of assists throught the club's first five games and ranks second on the team with an average ice time of 22:47 per game.
The native of Sundridge, Ontario recently reached the 100 point mark. While making his Rangers debut on October 10 at Minnesota, the defenseman registered his first point with the Blueshirts, also the 100th of his NHL career.
