Milestones are fun. Most players shrug them off as just numbers or, even worse, refreshers to how old they are getting, but they can be a good reminder of a player’s status in the NHL and how far they have come. The Golden Knights are a veteran-led group, meaning there are many stats to watch for in 22-23.

The most notable milestone is for newcomer Phil Kessel as he currently holds the longest active regular season games played streak in the NHL.

He needs to play in eight more consecutive games to break Keith Yandle’s record of 989-straight games. Assuming nothing goes wrong, Kessel will do so on Oct. 25th against the San Jose Sharks on the road.

Outside of Kessel’s anticipated NHL record, here are some other notable projected VGK milestones.
