Congratulations go out to Chicago's Marian Hossa. In last night's game vs. the Ottawa Senators Hossa became the 80th player in NHL history to record 1000 career points.
Interesting side note: Hossa joins Johnny Bucyk, Brian Propp and Alex Mogilny as the only players to score their 1000th point vs their former team.
“It doesn’t get better than this, doing it where I started,” said Hossa. “It means lots to me. Obviously big thanks go to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that, and also all the players throughout my career.”
The appreciative Ottawa fans gave Hossa a rousing ovation, even though Hossa's wraparound goal gave the Hawks a 4-3 lead with just 6 minutes left in the game.
The Sens did force OT, but Chicago won the game 5-4 in the shootout.
