Gordie Howe scores 1,000th point

November 27, 1960
Mr. Hockey scored his 1,000th career point on November 27, 1960, an assist in a 2-0 win over Toronto. It would be another eight years before another player matched the output (Jean Beliveau), but even more incredibly it would be twenty years later before Howe registered his final NHL point.
Gordie Howe - "Mr. Hockey"
"Many times when I hit the blueline, I have no idea what I'm going to do to put the puck in the net."
- Gordie Howe
