Individual Records?[edit]

Is the Individual Records section really be necessary in an article about team records? Why not move it to it's own "NHL Indivdual Records" article? NeoChaosX 04:24, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

The Vancouver Canucks have 6 different players with hat-tricks this season (2009-2010): Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Alex Burrows (2), Mason Raymond, Mikael Samuelsson, and Michael Grabner. I can't recall any team having 6 players with hat tricks in the years that I've been watching the NHL so I would think if it's not a record, it should be getting close. Does anyone have the resources to follow up on this? MantleX (talk) 07:25, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Should most shutouts be on this page as it is usually considered an individual stat? Eomund (talk) 17:26, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

I have removed the section on shutouts Eomund (talk) 01:35, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Team shutouts is a NHL team record according to Canadiens records. However I agree that a photo of the goalie is inappropriate for a team record page. I restored the record, but removed the photo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:53, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
It is not kept as a team record at and I would have to say I disagree with you. However, I will not remove it again unless other editors agree with me. Eomund (talk) 00:14, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
I can't find any team records at, however they do keep track of shut-outs by team. See here. (talk) 03:46, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Three point era[edit]

I think that it would be interesting to list records since the three point era began. Wins, losses, and points are all influenced enough by this change, that it would at least be interesting to note here in a sub-section. For example, even the worst teams today have not chance of rivalling the fewest points totals. This is the kind of thing that wikipedia is good at: information overload on interesting but generally disregarded information.Peregrine981 (talk) 10:58, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Undefeated Streak[edit]

What kind of record is Longest streak without failing to gain a point? You might as well call it Longest not not getting a point streak. I say change it back to Longest undefeated streak (like it was before the unexplained change in November 2010), and if you really want to, add a Longest points streak. Although, at this point it appears the record holders would be identical. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrkwcz (talkcontribs) 20:21, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm going to change it back. —Mrkwcz (talk) 01:09, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Edmonton Oilers[edit]

Someone replaced a bunch of titleholders with the Edmonton Oilers. At first glance it seems like all the years and stats are still correct. Someone with more knowledge than me about NHL records should double-check everything though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:25, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. -DJSasso (talk) 13:55, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Please Add Season Records in Per Game Format As Well[edit]

Because the records span seasons of 48 to 84 games, it would be insightful to keep the current records, but also add records on a per game basis as well.

In addition, please clarify what is meant by the note "The length of the above seasons varies from 48 to 84 games". Does that mean that a 48 game season was a cutoff for record consideration, or just a coincidence in looking at all seasons stretching back to 1910? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:11, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

It means that one of the records above happened during a 48 game season while others happened at 84 and some in between. -DJSasso (talk) 14:46, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Exactly. Consider that in 1918-1919, the Ottawa Senators had a (combined) record of 12-6-0. In addition, the 1929-1930 Boston Bruins had a record of 38-5-0. And if you want to get really silly, then the Montreal Wanderers folded early in the 1917-1918 season due to their arena burning down and had a record of 1-5-0 -- and that 5th loss was because the league was slow in accepting their departure from the league. Both of those are fewer losses than 8 by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1976-1977 season. I presume that record was intended to be since the first expansion. -Phil (talk) 22:13, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
The Montreal Wanderers' season doesn't technically count as a full season. But I agree. All games after the 1949-50 total up to 70 or more games so it's unfair to say however many losses a team had when there were fewer games played in season.Conyo14 (talk) 05:31, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Winning streaks[edit]

The 2012-2013 Blackhawks streak and the 1979-1980 Flyers streak were not WINNING streaks because they included ties. The longest winning streak is still owned by the 1992-1993 Penguins at 17 games. I've reverted the page to reflect this. --Jemiller226 (talk) 20:46, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Best and worst records[edit]

There is a section for best home record and worst away record, but there isnt any for worst home and best away records. Any reason why? (talk) 19:16, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Q: Most shots on goal by a team in a single game?[edit]

A: 83, by Boston Bruins against Chicago Black Hawks on March 04, 1941. --Danielvis08 (talk) 05:22, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

put it on yourself, under regular season misc. Conyo14 (talk) 00:52, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Q: Worst Goals Against Average per game by a team in a season?[edit]

A: 7,38 Quebec Bulldogs (177 goals against) for a season of 24 games. (1919-20) and 6,10 New York Rangers (310 goals against) for a season of 50 games. (1943-44) --Danielvis08 (talk) 06:34, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
