With an assist on Sunday evening, Grand Rapids Griffins forward Chris Terry became the 96th player in American Hockey League history to reach 500 career regular-season points.

A 10th-year pro from Brampton, Ont., Terry has been an elite AHL scorer throughout his career, totaling 211 goals and 289 assists for 500 points in 564 career games with Grand Rapids, Laval, St. John’s, Charlotte and Albany.

Terry, who has 28 goals and 32 assists for 60 points in 64 games for the Griffins this season, has hit the 30-goal mark three times and won the AHL scoring title in 2017-18. He was also a First Team AHL All-Star last season and a Second Team selection in 2016-17, and has appeared in four AHL All-Star Classics (2012, 2017, 2018, 2019).

The 29-year-old Terry was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2007 and has skated in 152 NHL games with Carolina and Montreal, notching 22 goals and 16 assists.
