Zdeno Chara hit yet another milestone in his Hall of Fame career on Saturday night by lacing up his skates for the 1400th time in the NHL. 

Now that Jaromir Jagr has returned home to the Czech Republic, Patrick Marleau (1546), Joe Thornton (1493) and Matt Cullen (1416) are the only active players to have more games played than the Bruins captain. Chara is just the 39th player in league history to hit the 1,400-game mark.
