Keith Yandle Moves Into Second Place on NHL Ironman List
April 24Grant WhiteSportsGrid
Ironman streaks are among the most impressive metric across all sports. It reflects a player’s longevity, durability, and irreplaceability that illustrates how important they are to their teams and sports.
Keith Yandle is one step closer to etching his name in the NHL history books by playing in his 915th consecutive game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. In doing so, Yandle passed Garry Unger for the second-longest consecutive games played streak in NHL history.
With 50 more consecutive regular season games played, Yandle can pass Doug Jarvis for the NHL’s ironman streak at 965. According to Cap Friendly, Yandle has two years remaining on his deal with the Panthers, which means that unless he is bought out or traded, he could surpass the record with the Panthers next season.
Florida is two points back of the Carolina Hurricanes for first in the NHL’s Central Division, although the Canes have two games in hand. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Panthers listed as +2000 to win the Stanley Cup this season.
