1. He has not missed a game due to an injury
Andrew Cogliano was on the fourth longest ironman streak in NHL history last season when it was stopped at 830 games.
Cogliano was suspended two games for a hit on Kings forward Adrian Kempe that drew an interference penalty in the game. While many pushed for a fine instead of a suspension, knowing about the ironman streak, the NHL said of the hit: "In addition to the lateness of the hit, what elevates this check to merit supplemental discipline is the substantial head contact and the significant force."
Cogliano was emotional at having the streak end, saying "It's a tough pill to swallow."
Cogliano has played 912 of 914 possible games in his NHL career and has not missed a game due to injury. The NHL's all-time ironman streak is 964 games, set by Doug Jarvis, who went on to serve several seasons as an assistant coach with the Stars.
