The Toronto Maple Leafs made the wrong kind of history Friday night when they lost their franchise record 11th straight game. Lucky for them, the moment was overshadowed by Patrik Elias netting his 400th career goal. Elias, who has played his entire NHL career with the New Jersey Devils becomes the 91st player in NHL history with 400 goals.
Elias already reached the 1,000 point plateau and naturally the 600 assist mark earlier this year. He’s the first player to score 1,000 career points with the Devils, though others have achieved the milestone 1,000th with the Devils.
When his career is over, you have to figure his #26 will be the first forward’s sweater retired by the Devils.
