NICKLAS LIDSTRÖM

(DET) 1.000 GAMES (FEB. 29, 2004 PHI AT DET) The three-time Stanley Cup champion is also a three-time Norris Trophy winner. Incredibly, the durable 33-year-old Swede has missed only 17 games to injury in his 13-year career. “It means a lot to me, just to play for a long period of time and that I haven't missed many games. Just reaching the milestone is something big for me personally,” Lidström said. JAROMIR JAGR (PIT, WSH, NYR) 1,000 GAMES (JAN. 30, 2004 BUF AT NYR) It was just a matter of time before the twotime Pearson Award winner would play in his 1,000th career game.

MARTIN ST. LOUIS

If there is a player who epitomizes the nickname of the team he plays for, speedy Martin St. Louis is the man. The unheralded St. Louis strikes as quick as Lightning. While Joe Sakic and Roberto Luongo were highly touted prospects of Canadian major junior hockey, despite his prolific four-year career at the University of Vermont, St. Louis was never drafted. His first go-around with the Calgary Flames didn't do much to boost his career, but when he received the ice time in Tampa Bay, a star was bom. St. Louis, who turns 29 on June 18, hit the pinnacle in 2003-04 when his second-half charge earned him the Art Ross Trophy as the league scoring champion with 94 points. He was named the league's player of the month for January and February…
