222. John MacLean

John MacLean’s long career would see him finish six games shy of 1,200, an incredible feat considering that he would miss an entire season in his prime (the 1991-92 campaign) due to a knee injury.

Prior to that injury, Maclean had already proven himself as a solid and gritty forward who knew how to put the puck in the net.  In the three seasons prior, he was a 40 Goal scorer and after coming back from injury he had another three 30 Goal seasons.  Scoring 701 of his 842 career Points with the New Jersey Devils, Maclean was a part of the first Stanley Cup win in the 1995 season.  He is also a two-time NHL All-Star, and not the hero from the Christmas Party in Die Hard; that was John McClane!
