Happy St. Patrik's Day or 702 and counting

Last night at 'the Rock' history was made twice. The man you see here was credited with a sweeet assist on Brian Gionta's second period goal making him the New Jersey Devils all-time points scorer, surpassing Mr. John MacLean (no slouch himself on the ice).
He now has 702 points in his career which has spanned 15 years in the NHL all with the Devils.
Patrik is a class act on and off the ice and even though he was presented with opportunity's to go elsewhere he chose his loyalty to the Devs. And are Devils fans glad he did. Patrik continues to be a solid performer and this Devils fan hopes he continues to do so for a long time to come.
Here's a few record Patrik holds...
  • Most Overtime Goals in a season, 4.
  • Most Overtime Winners, 15 (tied with Mats Sundin and Jaromír Jágr)
  • New Jersey Devils record for most points in one season, 96.
  • New Jersey Devils record for most points in a playoff season, 23.
  • New Jersey Devils all-time leader in playoff goals (39), assists (71), and points (110).
  • New Jersey Devils record for hat tricks, 6 (tied with John MacLean).
  • New Jersey Devils record for all time assists, 365.
  • New Jersey Devils record for all-time scoring in goals (293) and total points (702), ahead of John MacLean
  • New Jersey Devils record for game winning goals (60).
Pretty awesome, right?
Thanks Patrik and congratulations!
