Cory Sarich (born August 16, 1978) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Cory Sarich was selected in the 2nd round, 27th overall, in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres.

Sarich was traded along with Wayne Primeau and Brian Holzinger from Buffalo, to Tampa Bay for Chris Gratton on March 9, 2000, and played with the Stanley Cup-winning team of 2003–04.

Sarich signed a five-year contract with the Calgary Flames on July 1, 2007.

On December 12, 2007, Sarich became the NHL's reigning Iron Man when Brendan Morrison was forced to miss a game with wrist complications.[1] He played his 419th consecutive game the day before in a game against Tampa Bay, where Sarich had played four full seasons and 388 games.[1] Sarich's streak came to an end on March 1, 2008 when he missed the game at Phoenix, giving ironman status to Andrew Brunette. The current ironman is current teammate Jay Bouwmeester.

Personal lifeEdit

Sarich grew up in Bladworth, Saskatchewan. He is of Croatian descent. He now makes his home in Calgary, Alberta with his wife, Reagan, and their three children.

Sarich's brother in-law is Minnesota Wild defenseman Nick Schultz, and his brother Rod Sarich is a defenseman for the Sheffield Steelers of the British Elite Ice Hockey League.
