The fourth longest game in NHL history, the August Epic, broke more than one record on Tuesday. Before the game ended in 5OT, Columbus defender Seth Jones set the record for most ice time in a single game.
He skated over an hour.
The record once belonged to hall-of-fame defender Sergei Zubov, who clocked just under 64 minutes in a 2003 playoff game.
Now the record belongs to Jones, 25. From the NHL and as of like 10 minutes into the EIGHTH period:
“I feel fine,” Jones, 25, told the media after the game, seeming not at all like just played more hockey than any professional ever has. “Lot of minutes obviously.
“[I] tried to stay hydrated through the full thing.”
Torts says Jones probably could have kept going…called him “relentless.”
Says Korpisalo was “fantastic.”#CBJ
