At 41 years old, Matt Cullen is the oldest active player in the NHL.
He's currently on a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins for the 2018-2019 season.
"I'm proud of the fact I've played as long as I have," Cullen told StarTribune.com earlier this year. "It's not easy. It's a young man's game. So, yeah, I'm proud of the fact I've played as long as I have."
Cullen credits his longevity in part to a stretching routine he performs prior to bed each night.
He believes staying loose has allowed him to maintain a powerful skating stride despite appearing in 1,445 career NHL games.
Cullen could lose his status as the NHL's resident graybeard if a team decides to give Jaromir Jagr a shot.
Jagr, age 46, briefly played with the Calgary Flames last season before finishing the year with a team in the Czech Republic. He has not ruled out a return to the NHL.
