#Vlas1K Celebration

by Ann Frazier /

On Saturday, February 1, the San Jose Sharks celebrated the 17th defenseman in NHL history to play 1,000 games with one franchise, Marc- Edouard Vlasic. 

After having reached the milestone on December 14, 2019, the Sharks delayed the ceremony until the first day of February. 

And it was worth the wait.
