Haydar hits 700-point mark

Darren Haydar added another impressive milestone to his career resume in the Chicago Wolves’ 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Admirals at Allstate Arena on Saturday night.

With his assist on a first-period goal by Sebastian Erixon, Haydar became just the 22nd player in American Hockey League history to reach the 700-point plateau. He later scored a goal of his own in the second period.

Haydar has eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points in 23 games for Chicago this season, giving him totals of 259 goals and 442 assists for 701 points in 662 career AHL games.

Haydar needed exactly 100 games to get his last 100 points. His 600th career point was notched in Game #562 on Apr. 10, 2010.

One of the most decorated players in recent AHL history, Haydar was the AHL’s rookie of the year in 2002-03 and won a scoring championship and league MVP honors in 2006-07. He has appeared in two AHL All-Star Classics and won Calder Cup championships — with Milwaukee in 2004 and with Chicago in 2008.

A 32-year-old native of Milton, Ont., Haydar is also the AHL’s all-time leading playoff scorer in goals (59), assists (76, tied) and points (135).
