Vinnie reaches milestone
San Francisco Chronicle
Friday, October 18, 2002
Vincent Damphousse's goal 66 seconds into Thursday night's game not only kick-started the Sharks,
but represented a personal milestone as well.
Damphousse became the 71st player in NHL history to score 400 goals. The 17- year pro collected his
third of the year after Scott Hannan's shot from the left point ricocheted off teammate Owen Nolan to
the weakside of the net where an unmarked Damphousse was free to tap past Edmonton goalie
"I'm very happy," Damphousse said. "I've been fortunate to be playing a long time and avoid injuries.
I'm glad to get it done early in the season."
Damphousse, one of six Sharks to score 20 goals last year, is off to a fast start with three in the
team's first three games.
...Quote by Vincent Damphousse...
"It's a nice milestone, I've had to be durable and avoid injuries. I don't want to stop now. I still think I
have a lot of years left. It's fun for me to play right now."
