Zach Bogosian will play in his 500th career NHL game on Friday night against Carolina.
If it feels like Bogosian has been around forever, it might be because he has been.

The former third overall pick in 2008 has posted 47 goals and 161 points along with 446 PIMs, 725 blocks and 971 hits. Not too shabby for the young veteran. Jan 13 - 6:25 PM

Zach Bogosian is hoping to get off to a better start this season.

He missed the first 17 games of the season due to injury and didn't find his rhythm until the second half when he posted 16 of his 24 points after the All-Star Game. Coach Dan Bylsma has liked what he has seen at training camp so far from the 26-year-old defenseman. "He's skating great," Bylsma said. "He's been a leader for us in the first three days of camp and how we want to play, the pace which we want to play and that's what we've seen so far. Even in morning skate he's excited about the opportunity to get on the ice and play a game here."
