The story of Phil Kessel’s continuous Ironman streak is one that will last for as long as he stays playing. But tonight’s game against the Arizona Coyotes holds a special significance for two reasons. It will be Kessel’s first matchup against his former team and also his 1,000th straight consecutive game.

The Vegas Golden Knights will hold a brief ceremony before puck drop to celebrate Kessel’s milestone.

Elsewhere in the NHL, could Bo Horvat and Erik Karlsson be on the trade block? Marc-Andre Fleury is injured and will not play against his former team, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
