St. Louis Blues standout and former Terrier Keith Tkachuk scored the 1,000th point of his NHL career on Sunday with a second-period goal in an eventual 4-2 road win over the Atlanta Thrashers.

Tkachuk became just the sixth U.S.-born player to reach the millenium mark, joining Mike Modano, Jeremy Roenick, Joe Mullen, Brian Leetch and Pat LaFontaine. Now in his 17th NHL season, Tkachuk has 511 goals and 489 assists in 1,077 games.

Tkachuk started his career with the Winnipeg Jets and was with the organization when it became the Phoenix Coyotes prior to the 1996-97 season. He moved on to the Blues for the 2000-01 season and played 18 games for the Thrashers in 2006-07 before coming back to St. Louis last season.

The Medford, Mass., native played for the Terriers during the 1990-91 season, tallying 40 points on 17 goals and 23 assists.
