Tonight when the Islanders faceoff against the Leafs, it will be Equipment Manager Scott Bogg’s 1,000th game as a professional equipment manager.
According to Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society and the Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers or “PHATS/SPHEM”, very few athletic trainers or equipment managers ever reach this plateau.
According to them:
His achievement comes after twelve seasons in Professional Hockey. The 1000th game milestone is a testament to Scott’s commitment, professionalism and endurance. We are proud to count him among our 300 members, and know that the New York Islanders organization shares in that pride. At the 2009 PHATS/SPHEM Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ., Scott will be recognized by his peers for achieving the 1000th game milestone.
Either way, congratulation to Scott Boggs! He’s been a great addition to the Islanders staff since joining the team prior to the 2006-07 season.
