The Danish ice hockey player Frans Nielsen cemented his position as Denmark’s best ever NHL player by scoring his 300th point during the NY Islanders’ 6-3 win over the San Jose Sharks at the weekend. The Dane, 31, scored his 100th goal and notched his 200th assist in front of a boisterous crown of 11,577 at the Barclays Center in New York. Nielsen became the first Danish national to play in the NHL when he made his debut for the Islanders on 6 January 2007.
