Parsons inches closer to goal-scoring record

Don Parsons, who as I wrote earlier this week is primed to become minor league hockey’s all-time leading goal scorer, potted his 675th career goal at home for the IHL‘s Bloomington (Illinois) PrairieThunder in a 5-2 loss to the Port Huron IceHawks.  Tomorrow night he’ll get another chance to catch Kevin Kerr’s mark of 677 at home again, this time against the Kalamazoo K-Wings.

Sean Roarke also provides some background on Parsons’ pursuit of the record over at NHL.com:

“I tell everyone that when I met my wife 12 or 13 years ago, that I told her it was my last year playing hockey,” he says, starting to chuckle. “I told her you just have to follow me on the road for one year and then we’ll settle down. I might have fudged the details a little bit.”
