The Reason Why Krejci Deserves More Respect

In the world of NHL, an exclusive club stands as a testament to durability, loyalty, and passion for the game.

Among the 382 hockey players who have achieved the remarkable milestone of playing 1,000 games or more, two notable names shine brightly: Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.

Their unwavering commitment to a single team, the Boston Bruins, distinguishes them further. Only 44 individuals have managed to cross the 1,000-game threshold while donning the same jersey throughout their careers.

Bergeron, having graced the ice for an impressive 1,294 games, and Krejci, with a commendable 1,032 games, etched their legacy with the Bruins.

They embody the true essence of loyalty, a quality that is sometimes scarce in the fast-paced world of professional sports.

Another standout Bruin, Wayne Cashman, joins this prestigious duo with his 1,027 games played. As we look ahead, the spotlight falls on Brad Marchand, with 947 games to his name, poised to potentially join this select group.
