Even taking into account the 4 games missed this year from signing a bit late, he has played 1,670 of the 1,705 games that have technically been available for him to play in since he was drafted in 1997. Finishing out this year playing the remaining 65 games (hasn't missed a game since 2008/09) would put him at 1,735 games, 33 back of breaking Howe's record of 1,767. He'll be 40 for the duration of this season and would be 41 for the entire 2020/21 season if he's back. Feb. 14 edit: Still hasn't missed a game this year, maintaining his consecutive game streak of 840, beginning in April of 2009. If he' plays out the final 26 games he'll still be #3 on the all-time list behind Howe and Messier. 20 points in 52 games this season, playing 15:32 a night.
