Filipino American National Hockey League (NHL) forward Jason Robertson has reached 100 points for the first time in his career.

The Dallas Stars forward now has 101 points after tallying four points (one goal, three assists) after a 5-1 victory over the Nashville Predators at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Monday (Tuesday in Manila).

In addition to his milestone night, Robertson's Stars have also clinched their ticket to the 2023 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, along with divisional rivals, the Minnesota Wild.

The Filipino American star now has 43 goals and 58 points, for 101 points, which already broke his personal record of 79 points (41 goals, 55 points) from last season.

Robertson's assists were from goals from Roope Hintz at 4:21 of the first period, Joe Pavelski at 16:07 at the second period on the power play, and Tyler Seguin at 14:23 of the third period. His goal was at 8:29 of the third period on the power play.

He had also received the first star of the game honors.

Stars goaltender Scott Wedgewood tallied a .963 save percentage, after only allowing one goal from 27 Nashville shots, giving him second star honors, while defenseman Colin Miller received the third star of the game.

As of this writing, the Stars and Wild are tied at the Central Division of the NHL's Western Conference with 98 points each.
