In the first period of the Blackhawks and Oilers game, Marian Hossa collected his 500th assist.  The assist set up Jonathan Toews 22 goal of the season and an early lead for the Blackhawks.  Hossa has played in 1,017 games and now has 434 goals and  500 assists for 934 career points.  The other impressive number is a career +181 rating.

Hossa is also sitting at 97 career playoff points so hopefully he will end up this playoff season with another milestone and finish well over 100 career playoff points.

Congrats to Marian Hossa, Here is to many more milestones!!
