Since being drafted 1st overall in 2003, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has proved to be among the best goaltenders of all time. Being a consistent starter for nearly 20 years, Fleury's longevity is hard to match.

Since the NHL's inception, 382 players have hit the 1000-game plateau but only three of them are goaltenders. Fleury will join a list with Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, and Patrick Roy as goaltenders who have hit 1000 career games.

Fleury is playing in his 20th season and has a surefire Hall-of-Fame resume that includes three Stanley Cups and a Vezina trophy. We congratulate him on reaching this mark and look forward to seeing what he brings tonight versus Winnipeg.
