Jay Bouwmeester is set to play in his 1,000th career game Tuesday night.

That will make him the 307th NHL player and 17th active player to play in 1,000 matches. "I'd be lying if I said it wasn't [exciting]," Bouwmeester said. "It's a pretty big milestone. When you start your career, to say you'll play 1,000 games, you don't think that far ahead. It's one of those things where a milestone comes up that causes you to kind of look back and reflect a little bit." He has produced 81 goals and 296 assists during his 999 appearances.
