Video Of Day: Milan Hejduk scores in his 1,000th game


One of the NHL’s good guys is Milan Hejduk. Kind of similar to Devils’ lifer Patrik Elias, he’s spent his entire career with one team in Colorado. In the Avalanche’s game against the Stars Monday, Hejduk took part in his 1,000th career game. Even in defeat, he made it extra special by scoring his first of 2013.

At 36, the veteran Czech was taken by then Quebec in the fourth round of the ’94 Draft. He’s turned in an outstanding career, helping the Avs win a second Stanley Cup. Hejduk scored his 372nd goal. He needs two more points for 800.
