On Monday night, Patrick Sharp played in his 700th NHL game.
With his assist on Andrew Shaw’s second period goal, Sharp reached 500 career regular season points.
Sharp, who turned 33 on Saturday, played 66 games with the Philadelphia Flyers before he was acquired in one of the best trades in Blackhawks history; on Dec. 5, 2005, the Blackhawks traded Matt Ellison and a third round pick to Philly for Sharp and Eric Meloche. In those 66 games, Sharp produced 15 points.
Since joining the Blackhawks, Sharp has been named an All-Star Game MVP and won a gold medal representing Canada at the Winter Olympics. He has also been a part of two Stanley Cup championship teams. Sharp currently ranks 18th in Blackhawks franchise history in regular season points.
Sharp has 37 goals and 28 assists in 94 career postseason games with the Hawks.
