DiSalvatore notches 500th career point
Jon DiSalvatore became the 82nd player in American Hockey League history to reach 500 career points, scoring a goal in the second period of the Hershey Bears' 4-2 win over the Toronto Marlies at Giant Center on Sunday night.
DiSalvatore, a 2000 draft pick by the San Jose Sharks, is in his 10th professional season and first with the Bears. He has totaled 209 goals and 291 assists in 696 career games with Hershey, Houston, the Lowell Devils, San Antonio, Peoria, the Worcester Sharks and the Cleveland Barons, reaching the 20-goal plateau in each of his first nine campaigns.
DiSalvatore captained the Houston Aeros to the Calder Cup Finals in 2010-11, and made his first AHL All-Star Classic appearance in 2012.
DiSalvatore ranks fourth among active AHL players in career scoring, behind Toronto's Keith Aucoin (794 points), Chicago's Darren Haydar (736) and Providence's Trent Whitfield (583).
