Dougie Hamilton's shot streak ends at 296 games

One of the NHL's most quietly impressive streaks came to an end on Monday.

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton failed to record a shot on goal for the first time since April 5, 2016, ending a streak of 296 consecutive games, according to's Michael Smith. It was the longest active streak in the NHL.

Hall of Famer Ray Bourque holds the all-time record of 360 straight contests with a shot on goal since the league began recording the statistic. Bourque also holds records for most career shots (6,206) and most shots in a single game (19).

Alex Ovechkin and Jeff Carter have come close to Bourque's streak in recent years, but both came up 45 games short, TSN's Frank Seravalli wrote in 2017.

Hamilton still managed to pick up an assist in Carolina's 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators. He'll have a chance to start a new streak Tuesday in the Music City.
