Tomas Plekanec will play in his 900th career game, each with Montreal, as they take on the Blues on Saturday.

The 34-year-old career-long Hab has been a pillar of consistency from season to season over his long career. He's posted 223 goals and 576 points, with seven seasons of 20+ goals with six seasons of 50+ points. His career highs are 29 goals and 70 points. Perhaps though what's most remarkable about him has been his durability. Plekanec has missed more than two games in a season just twice. Lastly, he becomes the 12th ever Canadien to skate in as many as 900 games and will become the sixth-ever to reach 1,000 games if he can hang on just a bit longer.

Tomas Plekanec has come alive when the Canadiens needed him the most.

With injuries to top-line center Alex Galchenyuk and plug-in pivot David Desharnais, Plekanec has upped his production over the Habs' last three games. Including Saturday night's four-assist effort, Plekanec has registered six points in Montreal's last three contests and has a plus-five rating over that span. In addition, he has been deadly in the face-off circle, winning 10 of 13 draws against the hapless Avalanche Saturday night. If for some reason Plekanec is on your free agent wire, you should consider picking him up.
