Jay Bouwmeester is the only member of the St. Louis Blues to skate in all 82 games in 2013-14. Despite the injury bug claiming a huge chunk of the roster and almost every St. Louis forward, Bouwmeester managed to avoid any serious bumps and bruises and maintain a clean bill of health. At this point that shouldn’t really be that surprising, given Bouwmeester’s Iron Man streak.
Bouwmeester is only #stlblues player to play in all 82 games this season. No shock. This is game No. 717 in a row; longest ironman streak.

That’s just crazy. In a sport as physically demanding as hockey, Bouwmeester’s streak is unbelievable.
