List of NHL goaltenders with 300 wins

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Winning 300 regular season games in the National Hockey League (NHL) is a rare and celebrated milestone for a goaltender.[1] The mark has been reached by 31 players in NHL history; the first was Turk Broda, who reached the milestone on December 20, 1950.[2] The most recent was Marc-André Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who won his 300th game during the 2014–15 NHL season. Montreal's Jacques Plante was the fastest goaltender to reach the 300 win mark, achieving the milestone in his 528th game played.[3]

Martin Brodeur is the all-time leader with 691 career regular season victories at the end of the 2014–15 NHL season. He set the NHL record for wins in 2009 when he broke Patrick Roy's record of 551 wins.[4] In reaching the 691 wins, Brodeur had eight seasons with at least 40 wins. No other goaltender has had more than three seasons with at least 40 wins.[5]

Only four goaltenders on this list (Turk Broda, Mike Richter, Henrik Lundqvist, and Marc-André Fleury) have played all their games with one team. Brodeur played his first 1,259 games for the New Jersey Devils and only his final 7 games with the St. Louis Blues.

Four goaltenders on this list remain active going into the 2015–16 NHL season: Roberto Luongo, Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Miller and Marc-André Fleury.[6]

Twelve of the goaltenders on this list have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame, the most recent being 2014 inductee Dominik Hasek.[7]

The 31 goaltenders who have 300 NHL wins consist of 20 Canadians, four Americans (Tom Barrasso, John Vanbiesbrouck, Mike Richter, Ryan Miller), two Czechs (Dominik Hasek, Tomas Vokoun), two Russians (Nikolai Khabibulin, Evgeni Nabokov), one Finn (Miikka Kiprusoff), one German (Olaf Kolzig) and one Swede (Henrik Lundqvist).

According to Brent Sutter, who coached Brodeur and Kiprusoff, and played with Belfour and Billy Smith, goaltenders who reach 300 wins are all highly competitive athletes: "They were guys that every game, you knew you could count on them."[1] Brodeur credits his durability, noting he has been fortunate to avoid suffering any serious injuries during his career, while having the ability to play in excess of 70 games per season for 10 consecutive years.[8]
