List of NHL players with 500 consecutive games played
For ice hockey players in the National Hockey League (NHL), playing 500 consecutive regular season games is considered a highly significant achievement. This is often referred to as an "Iron man streak".
As of the completion of the 2016–17 NHL season — the 99th regular season of play of the National Hockey League — a total of 24 different players had played at least 500 consecutive regular season games in their NHL career — making it one of the most exclusive 500-clubs in the NHL.
The first player to play 500 consecutive games was Murray Murdoch of the New York Rangers, who played his 500th consecutive game during the 1936–37 season, the 20th season of the NHL. Doug Jarvis currently holds the record for most consecutive games played with 964, never missing a regular season game in his NHL career. Glenn Hall is the only goaltender to play 500 or more consecutive games.
Henrik Sedin's active streak of 679 consecutive games played ended on January 21, 2014 when he was unable to play due to injuries. Jay Bouwmeester's ended at 737 on November 23, 2014 due to an injury in the previous game.
