Craig Adams: I am Iron Man

Craig Adams established a franchise record today when he played in his 314th consecutive regular game, surpassing previous recordholder Ron Schock.

Since Adams began his consecutive games played streak on Oct. 18, 2010, the Penguins have lost 1,350 man-games lost to injury, an average of 4.3 man-games lost per contest.

PENGUINS REGULAR SEASON, CONSECUTIVE GAME STREAKS

Craig Adams 314

Ron Schock 313

Jordan Staal 302

Nick Harbaruk 276

Evgeni Malkin 254

It is important to note that the team records are for consecutive regular season games. The team record for consecutive games (playoffs included) belongs to Jordan Staal.

After cutting his foot in a playoff game against the Montreal Canadiens on May 2, 2010, Staal was knocked out of the lineup for the first time in 358 games.

Staal broke Shock’s record that included a streak of 328 consecutive games. In that span, Schock played 313 consecutive regular season games to give him the official team record.

Craig Adams missed a playoff game and was suspended for Game 4 of the Penguins-Flyers series as a result of his fight in Game 3 (April 15, 2012).

Adjusted for playoff games, we only have Craig Adams at 135 games.
