San Jose is the 22nd NHL franchise to reach 1,000 wins, but it got there in the third-fewest number of games.

In existence since 1991, the Sharks now have 1,000 wins, 842 losses, 121 ties and 149 overtime losses.

If you're curious which franchise has the most wins in NHL history, it's the Montreal Canadiens with 3,397. It helps when you've been playing hockey since 1917.
