Patrick Marleau’s journey from Canadian farmboy to NHL’s 1,768-game recordbreaker – The Guardian

Working on the farm forged Marleau’s durability.

I wasn’t going to get a good encapsulation of Marleau’s career so I picked a sentence that’s at least fun to mull.

Howe’s WHA games not counting is fine It’s not like #9 is getting forgotten in the history books. Marleau always struck me as interesting. I still think he’s the smallest “big forward” in the league. Every time I look at his listed height/weight, I’m surprised for a moment and then not surprised. It fits with him having been callled soft a bunch throughout his career, but I don’t think he’s been soft either. I also like that he’s basically the most-boring guy ever. Patrick Marleau is bleached mayonnaise and he’s played more NHL games than anybody ever.
