Zdeno Chára is a defenseman for the Boston Bruins.
At 41 years old, he is the second-oldest active player in the NHL.
At 6-foot-9, he's also the tallest player to ever appear in the NHL.
Chára served as a captain for the Bruins last season.
Hockey is an incredibly physical game, and tall people tend to have more joint issues than smaller people, so for him to be playing at a high-level for this long is a remarkable feat.
As if his hockey career wasn't impressive enough, Chára can also speak six different languages.
