On Tuesday night, Rick Nash skated in his 900th career NHL game and celebrated the feat in style. He recorded three assists, including a shorthanded one to aid in a big Derek Stepan goal, and posted a plus two rating for the game.

Nash, the first overall pick in the 2002 NHL draft, became the second player (and first forward) from that draft class to reach the 900-game-plateau, joining Jay Bouwmeester.

He continues his strong season leading Rangers’ forwards in assists with 17, sitting third on the team in goals with 12, and tying for second on the team in points with 29. Nash also has four power play goals, three game winning goals, and is a plus four for the season.

The 31-year-old Nash has enjoyed tremendous success in his career to date, topped by reaching 900 games. Yet he’s still at a young-enough age that both Nash and the Rangers hope there’ll be many more games played and many more records set in his future.
