TTM Success: Doug Jarvis
Doug Jarvis holds the record for the NHL's longest consecutive game streak. He never missed a regular season game in his career. He played in every game from October 9, 1975 to October 10th, 1987. Jarvis, then with the Hartford Whalers, was scratched in the 3rd game of the season. He never played again in the NHL. He was demoted to the AHL later in the year and retired after 24 games. Jarvis filled his trophy case during his playing days, winning four Stanley Cups, a Franke Selke trophy, a Masterson trophy and a Bronze medal in the inaugural, but unofficial, 1974 World Junior Hockey Championship. Jarvis won two more Stanley Cups as an assistant coach, Dallas in 1999, and Boston in 2011.
