Oh By The Way, Can We Double The Greatest Streak In Hockey

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,

(Glenn) Hall says that 502/552 is a statistic of which he’s fiercely proud. But then in our chat he dropped this bomb, dramatically adding to his lore with a personal ledger that charts his career:

In junior and minor pro, Hall says he didn’t miss a single game, including matches that don’t exist in the sketchy record-keeping of the 1940s and ‘50s.

So he adds his consecutive junior and minor-pro matches, including playoffs, to his NHL iron man streak, and arrives at 1,024 games.

Four decades after his retirement, Hall has quietly clarified his personal history that already was breathtaking.

“I’ve not talked about this because we’re not looking for numbers,” he said. “But that’s a big number, eh?

“And the glory of it was just playing a bunch of games. Win or lose.”
