Tri-City Herald: Justin Feser is WHL’s Iron Man

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

For 21 years, Dwayne Newman had the honor of being the Iron Man of the Western Hockey League.

He played 311 consecutive games from Feb. 2, 1988, through March 17, 1992, for the Brandon Wheat Kings and the Victoria Cougars.

Tuesday night, Tri-City Americans captain Justin Feser equaled Newman’s mark. Tonight, Feser takes over the WHL’s Iron Man title when he steps on the ice for game No. 312 against the visiting Seattle Thunderbirds at Toyota Center.

“I had a feeling it would fall sometime,” said Newman in a telephone interview from Great Britain. “There was a guy a while ago chasing me, but he ran out of games. My dad told me there was someone close this year and I started taking an interest. I hoped he would get there.”

Feser, in his fifth year with the Americans, began his streak on Jan. 7, 2009.
