By Marcus Hondro     Feb 27, 2013 in Sports
Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks reached a milestone on Tuesday night and all he had to do was put his uniform on and step on the ice - 600 straight times. He became just the 7th player in NHL history to play 600 consecutive games.
Sedin celebrated by scoring in the third period, on a deflection from a shot by brother Daniel, to bring the Canucks within a goal of the Phoenix Coyotes. However, Phoenix scored into an empty net to seal a 4-2 win.

Joining a list that has Doug Jarvis at the top with 964 consecutive games - Jarvis never missed a regular season game in his career - Sedin is 6 games behind the only other active player in the top 10, Jay Bouwmeester of the Calgary Flames; Bouwmeester started his run of consecutive games while with the Florida Panthers. Sedin, 32, is a career Canuck.
Here are the five longest streaks of NHL games played consecutively: 1: Jarvis (964); 2. Gary Unger (914); 3. Steve Larmer (884); 4. Craig Ramsay (776); 5. Andy Hebenton (630). Bouwmeester and Sedin are in 6th and 7th respectively.
In 911 games in the NHL, the Canucks' captain has 174 goals, 591 assists for 765 points and is a career plus 193. Earlier this season, Sedin became the franchise's all-time leading scorer.
