NHL Ironman Cogliano moves into 5th place for all-time consecutive games played

By playing his 738th consecutive NHL game, Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano passed Jay Bouwmeester to move into 5th on the NHL's all-time consecutive games played list. The guy has not missed a single NHL game since the first game of his career (Oct. 4 2007). Enough said.

Well, maybe not enough.

Here's more:

1. Cogliano's streak is the longest in the NHL in 23 years.

2. The streak began on October 4th, 2007. Jeez, that's insane. This is hockey, players blow tires on pretty much every shift!

3. He scored the first goal of last night's game to honor the occasion -- nice touch.

4. Cogliano can pass Craig Ramsay (776) to move into fourth on the all-time list by the end of the season.

5. Tops on the list is Doug Jarvis who played 964 consecutive games from 1975 to 1987.
