Coyotes lifer Shane Doan scores 400th goal in 1,500th game

Coyotes lifer Shane Doan scores 400th goal in 1,500th game

The Arizona captain reached a pair of milestones Friday night.

Shane Doan is Arizona hockey personified, and he had quite the "This Is Your Life" evening on Friday.

The Coyotes' captain became the 17th man to play in 1,500 NHL games, and his 400th career goal was the lone tally for the home team in a 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

To drive home the notion of how long Doan has been around, he took the opening face-off against Toronto rookie sensation Auston Matthews, an Arizona native who wasn't yet born when Doan and the Coyotes relocated from Winnipeg 20 years ago.

Matthews has said he idolized Doan growing up, but it was the wily veteran who got the better of him at center ice, winning the face-off even though he isn't even a center. 

Doan scored with 43.4 seconds remaining in the second period, breaking a 10-game drought and finally getting over the hump to goal No. 400.

The 40-year-old Alberta native has spent his entire career with the franchise, breaking into the NHL in 1995-96 when the previous version of the Jets was still in Winnipeg.
