Kevin Bieksa hopes to play in the NHL for a few more seasons.

Bieksa is 36-years-old and reached the 800-game milestone on Sunday. He's set his eye on trying to reach the 1,000-game mark, which he would likely do in the 2020-21 campaign so long as he stays relatively healthy. That also suggests that he does want to sign a new contract once his current deal expires this summer. "I don’t think I’m going to be Jaromir Jagr. I don’t think my wife will let me play past 40," he also noted.

Kevin Bieksa recorded an assist in the Ducks' 3-2 win over the Blues on Wednesday.

It was Bieksa's first point since Oct. 20. He now has three assists in 19 games this season. There was a time when Bieksa could get 30-plus points in a campaign, but that was a while ago. The 36-year-old defenseman shouldn't be counted on to do much offensively at this stage of his career.

Kevin Bieksa picked up a couple of assists and 16 penalty minutes in a 6-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Bieksa picked up a game misconduct for giving a couple of punches to Andrew Shaw while it appeared that the Canadiens forward wasn't looking. Bieksa was never much of a point producer and should not be owned in any formats. The two assists were his first points of the season and they came on goals by Brandon Montour and Dennis Rasmussen.
