Dvorak Reaches 1,000 NHL Games Played Milestone
SUNRISE, FL – Florida Panthers RW Radek Dvorak became the eighth player in the club’s franchise history to skate in his 1,000th National Hockey League game this evening, joining a list of Panthers who have reached this milestone including Bryan McCabe (2009), Chris Gratton (2007), Lyle Odelein (2004), Scott Mellanby (2000), Greg Adams (2000), Kirk Muller (1998) and Mike Foligno (1994). Dvorak becomes the 249th player in the NHL to reach the 1,000 games played milestone.
Throughout his 14-year NHL playing career, Dvorak, 32, has played for Florida (1995-2000, 2007-present), NY Rangers (2000-2003), Edmonton (2003-06) and St. Louis (2006-07) scoring 197 goals with 311 assists and 356 PIM.

He helped the Panthers advance to the 1996 Stanley Cup Finals and was a member of Edmonton’s 2006 Western Conference championship team.
The Tabor, Czech., native was originally drafted by Florida with their first choice (10th overall) in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. Dvorak then returned to the Panthers as an unrestricted free agent in July 2007.
