Hejduk scores in 1000th NHL match

The Czech ice hockey player Milan Hejduk played his 1000th game in the NHL on Monday. Hejduk, who is 36, marked the milestone with his first goal of the season for Colorado Avalanche in their 2:3 defeat to Jaromír Jágr’s Dallas. The right wing, whose career began with the Czech club Pardubice, earned a Stanley Cup ring with Colorado in the 2001–2002 season. Hejduk says this may well be his last season.
