Kārlis Skrastiņš (born July 9, 1974 in Riga, Latvia to September 7, 2011) is a professional ice hockey defenceman. He plays for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League. On September 7, 2011, Skrastins passed away in the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash

Playing careerEdit

Skrastiņš was drafted by Nashville Predators with the 230th pick in the 9th round of 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He played for Nashville for next 5 seasons until being traded to Colorado in 2003. On February 8, 2007, he played in his 487th consecutive game to pass Tim Horton for the longest playing streak in NHL history for a defenceman. Skrastins' streak would end at 495 games, when he missed a February 25, 2007 game against the Anaheim Ducks with a knee injury. He had previously missed only one other game due to injury in his career—against St. Louis on February 18, 2000, with a minor shoulder injury. The streak led to him being given the nickname "Ironman".

On February 26, 2008, he was traded to the Florida Panthers for Ruslan Salei.

On October 16, 2008, he played his 600th NHL game. On November 1, 2008, he scored his 100th point in his NHL career in a 3-2 loss against the Nashville Predators.
