Keith Yandle will extend his Ironman streak to 890 consecutive games Sunday when the Panthers visit Carolina, but he will hit an even bigger milestone as it marks his 1000th NHL game played.

As is the case with the consecutive game streak, Yandle is downplaying the moment although that doesn’t make it any less impressive.

The 34-year-old defenseman will become the 352nd player in league history to reach the mark when the Panthers take on the Hurricanes at 5.

“I’ve always kind of lived my life one day at a time and not really tried to think about stuff too far in advance,” Yandle said Friday afternoon.
