Tonight’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights will be a special one for forward Patrick Marleau and the San Jose Sharks.

This will be the 1768th game of Marleau’s career, which will set the all-time record for most NHL games played, passing Gordie Howe, who played his last game over 40 years ago. Marleau had tied Howe’s record in San Jose’s game against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

Marleau, now 41 years old, has played 1595 of his 1767 games with the San Jose Sharks. He was originally selected second overall by San Jose in the 1997 NHL Draft and holds the record for most goals and points in franchise history.

Do you think this will be Patrick Marleau's final NHL season?
