Linesman Scott Driscoll worked his 1600th NHL game on Sunday as the Philadelphia Flyers headed to Brooklyn to take on the New York Islanders.
Driscoll made his NHL debut on October 10, 1992, manning the lines for a 3-3 tie between the Boston Bruins and New York Islanders.
“You do a lot of reflecting,” Driscoll said after reaching the 1,500-game mark in 2015. “I personally think about how fast it’s gone by. Obviously, there have been lots of highs and a few lows, but it’s about longevity.
Driscoll’s highs on the ice include three Stanley Cup finals, the 2004 All-Star Game, the Winter Classic between Toronto and Detroit, the 1996 World Cup and just about any other big game possible, Olympics aside.
The Seaforth, Ontario, native ranks fourth in games worked among active linesmen, trailing Mark Wheler, Brian Murphy, and Shane Heyer.
