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. Feb 11 - 3:33 PM

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.

It was announced Wednesday that Galchenyuk and Desharnais would miss six to eight weeks.
