Kudos for Tkachuk

Ex-Terrier and St. Blues assistant captain Keith Tkachuk’s 16th NHL season ended short of the Stanley Cup playoffs, but the Melrose, Mass., native reached a major milestone on the final weekend of the regular season. Tkachuk netted his 498th and 499th career goals in the Blues’ next to last game and then recorded his 500th in the season finale.

He joins Joe Mullen, Mike Modano and Jeremy Roenick as the only Americans to reach the 500-goal plateau, and with 484 assists, he’s 16 points shy of 1,000 career points.

Awesome blog, I graduated from BU in 06.

Rough season for the Terriers, especially with BC winning it all. Bleh.
