Patrick Marleau has become the 83rd player in NHL history to reach 1,000 NHL points. Marleau has 462 goals and 537 assists in 1349 regular season games (so far). Here is the assist from tonight on a Brent Burns goal.
Marleau also becomes the first Sharks draft pick to reach 1,000 points. Quite the accomplishment for the 1997 2nd overall pick. He is no doubt one of the best players in franchise history, and his number will most likely be in the rafters when all is said and done.
He is being recognized around the league.
