Andrei Markov has become an iron man over the past four seasons.

He has missed just two games during that span and they were both to give him some rest before the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "Touch wood," Markov said. "I just try to follow my routine every day. To be honest with you, it's not easy. But you realize you have no choice - you have to take care of yourself, be well rested and well prepared. That's what I try to do, and I enjoy every day." He also stated that he adds something new to his off-season training each year to challenge and improve himself. Markov has skated in 928 career NHL contests, which puts him on track for game No. 1,000 at home against the Ottawa Senators on March 19 if his durability remains intact.
