 As the years pass by in a hockey players career there comes a point where, at least for the great ones, people begin discussing their “legacy”. Where they stand amongst their peers in terms of the greatest players to play the game.To aid us in the conversation are certain benchmarks that we use to separate the good from the great https://www.knightsstoreonline.com/Keegan_Kolesar_Jersey-43. The great from the elite. Numbers that we rarely see achieved and so, in the rare occasion we do, we know wee seeing something special.For skaters there are many of these benchmarks. 500 goals, which has happened just 45 times in league history, is a big one. As is 600 goals, surpassed only 20 times. There is also the 1,000 point mark and 1,500 points . For goalies there is just one benchmark. Wins.In the history of the NHL just 13 goalies have amassed 400 career wins.With his victory tonight, a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury became No. 13.Fleury joins the likes of Tony Esposito, Grant Fuhr, Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur and Roberto Luongo in the 400 Win Club and is the second fastest to achieve it at 728 career games .To put it into some context; 609 goalies have recorded at least one victory in the NHL history. Fleury has more wins than the bottom 162 combined . The other Golden Knight goalies who have started games this season have a combined 20 career wins.Fleury, who began his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins after being selected first-overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, recorded his first win October 18, 2003 against Dominik Hasek and the Detroit Red Wings.Hasek, considered by many to be the game greatest goalie, has just 389 wins Paul Thompson Jersey.
