Patrick Marleau is used to making history. He's the Sharks' all-time leader in games played, points, goals and a plethora of other stats. 

On Tuesday, Marleau added another impressive milestone to his ledger with a record that ranges between multiple sports. The 40-year-old became the oldest player in NHL, MLB or NBA history with a consecutive games streak of at least 800. 

Marleau made history in style, too. The winger put the Sharks on the board in the second period of their 4-2 win over the Blackhawks to help end a season-long five-game losing streak. It was a special one for the veteran, thanks to fellow 40-year-old Joe Thornton.

Marleau didn't play the first four games of the 2019-20 regular season, but because he wasn't under contract with a team, his streak continued once he rejoined the Sharks on Oct. 10. 


The future Hall of Famer has seven points -- three goals and four assists -- in 12 games with San Jose this season.
