His NHL career has spanned decades after being selected by the Devils in the second round of the 1994 NHL Draft.
And with a resume that covered 1,240 regular season games, including being the Devils’ all-time leader in goals (408), assists (617), and points (1,025), #PattysLastLap is a hashtag worth celebrating.
