Oates and Juneau Pass Longevity Milestones

RPI alumni Adam Oates and Joe Juneau both recently passed milestones in their NHL careers. Adam Oates played in his 1,300th National Hockey League game on Thursday night, when the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 1-0 in Edmonton. You may remember that the Mighty Ducks released Oates at the end of last season, after an excellent performance in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Joe Juneau played in his 800th NHL game on Saturday night against the New York Rangers, which ended in a 2-2 tie. This was a very important game for both teams. They are both in the same conference, and are expected to be among the teams fighting for the final playoff seeds at the end of the season.

In case you are wondering how difficult it is to achieve milestones like these, each team in the NHL plays 82 games in the regular season.
