The Anaheim Ducks announced today that center Ryan Kesler and winger Patrick Eaves will miss the entire 2019-20 season.

Patrick Eaves was acquired from the Dallas Stars at the 2017 trade deadline for a conditional 2nd round pick that turned into a 1st round pick due to the conditions being met. He immediately made an impact for the Ducks, scoring 11 goals in in 20 games in the regular season and adding two more in the first round of the playoffs before becoming injured.

He was awarded a three year contract with a $3.15 million AAV. Unfortunately Eaves only played two games the following season before being diagnosed with a now-unclassifiable muscle disease that threatened his life and mobility. After making a miraculous recovery and healing from a shoulder injury early last season, Eaves made his return, only playing in seven games this last season before being sidelined again before eventually finishing the season in San Diego.

With the announcement that he is now out for the season, Eaves’ career as a Duck is likely over, as this is the final year of his current contract.

For Ryan Kesler, the news of being sidelined for the year has been expected all summer. After Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported last offseason that Kesler might not play in 2018-19, the veteran center surprised everyone by playing 60 games. Unfortunately, Kesler was clearly not the same player the Ducks had traded for back in 2014, putting up a career low eight points while having some of the worst shot metrics of any center in the NHL.

After Kesler played his 1000th career NHL game against Arizona in March, he played one more game to be honored at Honda Center by the Ducks before promptly sitting out the rest of the year. A Sports Illustrated article including interviews with Kesler revealed just how many agonizing struggles he had to endure just to stay on the ice and reach 1000 games played.

Kesler still has three seasons remaining on his six year, $6.875 million contract. It’s very possible that he could spend the remainder of that deal on LTIR, though Kesler did not entirely rule out trying to make a comeback at some point after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery in May.

With both Eaves and Kesler on Long Term Injured Reserve this year, the Ducks could have up to $10 million in cap relief should they have the need. However, the team currently sits $8.5 million under the cap, the fifth-lowest mark in the league according to CapFriendly, and with training camp underway, it’s unlikely they will need the room anytime soon.

Chris Kreider scored twice and Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves as the New York Rangers won a tough and physical game against the Anaheim Ducks, 5-1, at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. It snapped a three game losing streak.

There was a scary moment in the third period when Filip Chytil went slamming into the boards knees first after Korbinian Holzer’s stick hit his foot. Chytil laid on the ice for a few minutes but eventually skated off with help from head athletics trainer Jim Ramsay. He did return to play in the period but looked uncomfortable.

Earlier in the game it was a Chytil who got the Rangers on the board first. The scoring got underway about seven minutes into the first period. Brendan Lemieux chipped a pass to Filip Chytil in the neutral zone, and Chytil skated all the way to the net and back-handed a shot past Ryan Miller to give the Rangers the early lead.

Only a minute later, Brett Howden knocked in a loose puck hanging after a saved shot from Anthony DeAngelo to give the Blueshirts a 2-0 advantage.

At about halfway through the period, Anaheim’s Sam Steel knocked in a puck that was in mid-air past Henrik Lundqvist to put the Ducks on the board.

But Kreider took a pass in the neutral zone three minutes later, and just like Chytil, skated all the way through the neutral zone and forced the puck past Miller to give the Rangers the 3-1 lead, which held until the end of the period.

The second period was extremely intense, and it may very well be the Rangers’ most physical period of hockey so far this season.

16 minutes into the period, Kreider deflected a pass by Zibanejad from behind the net, which led to another goal and put the Rangers up 4-1.

But mere moments later, a rather unusual incident occurred involving Lemieux. Erik Gudbranson gave Lemieux a shove, and challenged Lemieux to a bout. Lemieux skated away after Gudbranson dropped the gloves.

Gudbranson was given a 10 minute misconduct for slamming his sticking snapping it in half afterwards, and Lemieux was given a minor penalty.

As the second period ended, Lemieux was handed a 10-minute misconduct and a two-minute roughing minor for punching Hampus Lindholm at the end of the period.

To start the third, Zibanejad scored his third shorthanded goal of the season to give the Rangers a 5-1 edge.

Later on, Michael Haley and Nicolas Deslauriers gave the Garden faithful an amazing bout, which ended with Deslauriers getting pinned to the ice by Haley. Both received five-minute majors.

Michael Del Zotto hit a once-in-a-lifetime shot Saturday. Unfortunately for him, it didn’t result in a goal.

The Anaheim Ducks defenseman accidentally flipped a puck into referee Francis Charron’s pocket during the third period of their game against the New York Islanders.

Del Zotto was in his own zone and tried to move the puck to one of his teammates. Instead he tossed a backhand pass into the right-front pocket of Charron’s pants, forcing a stoppage in play.

You can read Charron’s lips as he says, “It was in my pocket,” and fear not, no officials were hurt during this remarkable play. But it did make for a good laugh once the mystery of the disappearing puck was solved.

IRVINE — Ryan Getzlaf called out the Ducks after they succumbed to the quick-strike offense of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. He said they quit after giving up the tiebreaking goal in a 6-2 loss. He said they weren’t tough enough in front of the nets. He also didn’t spare himself from criticism.

Harsh words, but Getzlaf believed they needed to be said.

Getzlaf then showed the Ducks how to do it right during their 3-0 victory over the sizzling New York Islanders on Monday night. He led and the Ducks followed closely behind their longtime captain, ending a three-game losing streak (0-2-1) while winning for only the second time in 10 games (2-5-3).

He talked a good game Saturday and then played one Monday against the league’s hottest team. He scored the Ducks’ first goal against New York and set up their second. He also was credited with two shots on goal, two hits, two takeaways and seven victories in 12 trips to the faceoff circle.

“He’s our leader,” Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler said. “We understand sometimes we need a kick in the butt, and he’s the guy who can provide that. On any given night, you know he’s going to come out and compete. Even if he’s not on the score sheet, he’s working, he’s killing penalties, he’s playing physical. He’s a guy we look to when times get tough.”

With the Ducks in transition and no longer capable of making the deep playoff runs of season’s past, Getzlaf has been asked to accept new challenges this season, including the mentorship of a group of young players who are expected to comprise the new foundation of the franchise.

Slowly but certainly, Getzlaf, 34, has emerged as a leader in goals, assists and so much more.

“He’s been one of the best players in the league for a really long time and it’s not by accident,” said Sam Steel, a 22-year-old center. “He’s awesome. He’s always trying to help me out. It’s nothing specific. It could be certain times in the game. Just little things here and there.

“He’ll let me know when I’m doing a good job. He’s been really helpful. It’s been really good.”

Getzlaf and Jakob Silfverberg were the Ducks’ co-leaders with nine goals apiece going into Wednesday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale, Ariz. Getzlaf also has 10 assists, one more than Silfverberg, Rickard Rakell and Hampus Lindholm.

Getzlaf has done it all while averaging only 18:13 of ice time, his lowest figure since the second season of his Hall of Fame-caliber career. Back in 2006-07, he was more of a follower than a leader on a team that Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger and Teemu Selanne guided to the Stanley Cup.

Getzlaf has been on board with everything the 2019-20 Ducks are trying to accomplish. Ducks coach Dallas Eakins got the sense right from their first offseason meeting that Getzlaf did not need to be given a sales job. He was ready for a new challenge.

“You know when you’re talking to somebody, you either get a sense from their body language or their tone or whatever it is, are they feeding me a bunch of (expletive) or are they being truthful?” Eakins said. “I really believed he spoke from the heart.

“I don’t think I should have had anything contrary in my head. He’s been the captain here. He’s invested much into this organization and this organization has invested much into him. So, I just believed coming out of there that he had the organization … and his teammates first in his thoughts.

“For me, if there’s anybody who has been leading the charge, pounding home the message, being totally on board, it has been him. And that’s encouraging to see. It’s inspiring to see. Not only is he invested in playing well himself, he’s invested in seeing not just the young guys but all his teammates get better.”

EDMONTON – Phillip Danault se souvient très bien de ce qu’on lui a demandé à sa première année professionnelle à Rockford dans la Ligue américaine de hockey (LAH).

« On me disait qu’on aimerait que je modèle mon jeu sur (Marcus) Kruger », a-t-il raconté, vendredi, après l’entraînement du Canadien.

Marcus Kruger. L’exercice en est un de mémoire, n’est-ce pas, alors allons se la rafraîchir.

Marcus Kruger, donc. Pivot suédois de 29 ans, ancien choix de 5e tour des Blackhawks de Chicago en 2009, qui a participé aux conquêtes de la Coupe Stanley en 2013 et 2015 dans un rôle secondaire, voire tertiaire.

Il campait un rôle défensif, éteignoir, contre les meilleurs éléments adverses, un peu à la manière de Samuel Pahlsson avec les Ducks d’Anaheim en 2007 si les (un peu) plus vieux d’entre vous préfèrent la comparaison.

Kruger joue aujourd’hui dans la Ligue A, en Suisse. En 8 saisons dans la LNH, il n’a jamais réussi plus de 9 buts, jamais inscrit plus de 28 points.

« Sans rien enlever à Kruger, je me disais “Ok, c’est un bon départ, mais il me semble que je suis capable d’aller chercher un autre niveau” », a expliqué le Québécois.

À l’époque, Danault amorce sa carrière par une saison timide, du moins sur le plan offensif, dans la LAH. Rapidement, les Hawks, déjà bien nantis dans l’axe avec Jonathan Toews, prévoient en faire un centre essentiellement défensif.

Puis, « j’ai été échangé à Montréal et ça a été la meilleure chose de pouvoir prouver à moi-même et à toute la ligue que j’étais capable d’être un solide centre complet. »

C’est peut-être ce qui est le plus étonnant du parcours du jeune homme de 26 ans jusqu’à présent : sa capacité à changer les idées préconçues. Lorsqu’on vous colle une étiquette sur le casque, il devient difficile de la faire oublier.

Je ne sais pas s’il me surprend, c’était un bon joueur junior. Mais il a commencé sa carrière en étant un centre un peu plus défensif. Il joue avec des gars qui ont du talent offensif alors c’est sûr que ça aide. Sa confiance a grandi aussi avec cette situation.
Claude Julien

Aujourd’hui, Danault est le premier centre d’une formation qui bataille pour une place en séries éliminatoires. N’en déplaise à ses détracteurs, les chiffres démontrent qu’il n’a que peu à envier à la fine fleur de sa profession.

Le centre est confronté soir après soir aux meilleurs trios de la LNH avec comme mission principale de les freiner dans leurs velléités offensives. Accessoirement, Danault doit produire avec ses ailiers puisque le Canadien souffre présentement, jusqu’au match contre Calgary en tout cas, d’une collaboration inconstante de ses autres trios.

Malgré tout, le Victoriavillois affiche le troisième taux de possession de rondelle parmi tous les joueurs de centre du circuit, soit 58,4 % selon Natural Stat Trick.

Petit saut en arrière. Lorsque David Desharnais a quitté Montréal, Max Pacioretty se plaisait à jouer principalement avec un joueur centre : Danault.

Sans noircir lui-même la feuille de pointage, sa capacité à créer des revirements en zone neutre, sa combativité en échec-avant et son intelligence du jeu sont autant de facettes qui dégageaient de l’espace pour l’ancien capitaine.

Ses compagnons de trios actuels, Tomas Tatar et Brendan Gallagher, en profitent à leur tour sauf que cette fois le Québécois touche aussi sa part du butin.

Avec 23 points amassés à forces égales cette saison, il pointe au 8e rang parmi tous les centres de la ligue et au 21e si on ajoute tous les patineurs dans l’équation. Il en a récolté autant qu’Alexander Ovechkin et que Mark Stone.

« C’est du stock, c’est gros », a-t-il laissé tomber. On pourrait dire ça, en effet.

J’ai toujours cru en moi, c’est sûr. Avec la confiance, on peut accomplir de grandes choses.
Phillip Danault

Il vogue présentement sur un rythme de 61 points cette saison après en avoir récolté 53 l’an dernier. Il avait d’ailleurs terminé au 7e rang du scrutin pour l’obtention du trophée Selke remis au meilleur attaquant défensif, avec 80 votes.

La carrière de l’ancien des Tigres de Victoriaville est simplement entrée dans une autre dimension au cours de la dernière année. Pour remporter le trophée Selke, il faut bâtir sa réputation une brique à la fois.

Votre nom commence d’abord par être murmuré dans les corridors, puis, vous obtenez vos premiers votes. Si vous maintenez la cadence pendant quelques saisons, possible que vous gagniez suffisamment en popularité pour vous approcher de la récompense.

Peut-il, un jour, devenir un candidat crédible?

« Il pourrait l’être assurément. Il y a beaucoup de bons joueurs qui peuvent être dans la course et il est certainement l’un d’entre eux. C’est une bonne ligue, il y a beaucoup de bons joueurs. Ce n’est pas facile de remporter ce trophée. J’ai joué avec Pavel Datsyuk. J’ai joué avec beaucoup de bons joueurs et il est l’un d’entre eux », a estimé son ailier gauche, Tomas Tatar.

Sauf qu’il faut engranger de bonnes statistiques. Depuis 2005-2006, tous les lauréats avaient réussi au moins 70 points, à une exception près que nous appellerons la clause Patrice Bergeron.

La vedette des Bruins, que le joueur du Canadien a toujours eue comme modèle d’ailleurs, a été la seule à mettre la main sur le Selke, à 4 reprises s’il vous plaît, avec des campagnes de 64, 62, 55 et 53 points.

Pour Danault, tout cela n’a que peu d’importance. Des rêvasseries romantiques qui n’ont que peu d’effet sur le match de samedi contre les Oilers.

Sa plus grande réussite, au fond, aura probablement été de forcer les autres à changer leur opinion à son égard.

« Dans la Ligue nationale, ton jeu fait foi de tout. Il a fait un bon travail pour saisir les occasions qu’on lui a offertes. C’est la façon de faire pour tous les joueurs », a conclu Brendan Gallagher.
En rafale

Le Canadien a tenu un entraînement complet d’une vingtaine de minutes seulement dans le but de préparer son duel contre les Oilers d’Edmonton samedi soir à 19 h (HNE).

Nick Cousins était le seul absent de la séance puisqu’il profitait d’une journée de traitements.

Les Oilers affrontent les Penguins vendredi soir à Edmonton. La troupe de Dallas Eakins a perdu de sa superbe récemment et affiche un dossier de 3-5-1 au mois de décembre. N’empêche, Connor McDavid (59 points) et Leon Draisaitl (58) trônent toujours au sommet des marqueurs de la ligue.

Victor Mete et Jesperi Kotkaniemi se sont à nouveau entraînés avec leurs coéquipiers sans toutefois recevoir de contacts.

Mete (cheville) se rapproche d’un retour au jeu, potentiellement dès Winnipeg lundi selon Claude Julien, tandis que Kotkaniemi (commotion cérébrale) est encore évalué quotidiennement.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Kevin Boyle made 35 saves in his first career start and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 Wednesday night in general manager Bob Murray’s first game as interim coach.

Jakob Silfverberg scored to help the Ducks end a seven-game losing streak, a skid which prompted Murray to fire coach Randy Carlyle on Sunday and take over for the rest of the season.

Jacob Markstrom made 21 saves for the Canucks, who have lost four straight road games.

The 64-year-old Murray had never coached professionally at any level but got the response he had been looking for, with Silfverberg scoring 6:30 into the first period to give the Ducks their first lead since getting the opening goal in a 5-1 loss at St. Louis on Jan. 23.

Anaheim maintained a feisty edge throughout the increasingly chippy game, with veteran forwards Ryan Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf each getting into fights.

However, the Ducks could not address all of the issues that had caused them lose 19 of their previous 21 games and plummet into last place in the Western Conference. The Canucks had a 35-22 advantage in shots, forcing Boyle to make several difficult saves.

Boyle, a 26-year-old undrafted rookie, joined John Gibson as the second Ducks goalie to record a shutout in his first NHL start.

Vancouver rookie Elias Pettersson also hit the crossbar with a powerful slap shot during a power play in the first period.

NOTES: Ducks D Cam Fowler played in his 595th game for Anaheim, passing Ruslan Salei for most appearances by a defenseman in team history. … Gibson was placed on injured reserve because of back, neck and head injuries.

The Heroes of Motown roster has been announced.

Hockey Hall of Famer Chris Chelios headlines the Detroit Red Wings alumni who have agreed to attend the 2020 edition of the Brockville Winter Classic. The annual hockey celebration weekend that raises money for Rotary Park features an exhibition game involving the alumni of an Original Six NHL team as well as the local Tim Hortons all-stars squad. The 2020 game will be held at the Memorial Centre on Sunday, Feb. 16.

Also on the Detroit roster that was announced on Monday are four-time Stanley Cup winner Darren McCarty as well as Todd Bertuzzi, Brad Marsh, Brad May and Brockville-area natives Randy Ladouceur and Todd Gill. Al Iafrate and Wayne Presley will also suit up with the Red Wings alumni; their NHL careers did not include Detroit, but both are from the Detroit area and have appeared at the Winter Classic.

“We’ve got a great crew in there,” said Winter Classic committee member Jeff Severson.

Landing Chelios is “great” for the organizing committee, Severson noted. He will be the fourth Hall of Famer to take part in the Brockville hockey celebration; the others are Guy Carbonneau, Ray Bourque and Denis Savard, who was part of the Chicago alumni who visited the city earlier this year.

“That’s pretty special,” Severson said of being able to bring hockey legends to Brockville and giving local residents an opportunity to meet them.

Chelios won two Stanley Cups during his decade as a player with Detroit. He started his NHL career with Montreal and was part of the cup-winning Canadiens team in 1986. Chelios was traded to Chicago in 1990 and played for the Blackhawks until he was traded to the Red Wings late in the 98/99 season. He retired at the age of 47.

Severson, a Montreal fan, recalled that his sister bought a Chelios jersey when they went to a Canadiens game when they were kids. It’s “awesome” that followers of Montreal, Detroit and Chicago will have a chance to see him in person in February.

Having two local alumni players in Gill and Ladouceur is also a plus for the classic, according to Severson. Ladouceur was with Detroit for three-plus seasons in the early and mid-’80s before going to the Hartford Whalers; Gill played for the Red Wings in the late ’90s and early 2000s near the end of his lengthy pro career.

The Winter Classic includes a hot stove gala with the alumni crew in the Memorial Centre community hall the night before the exhibition game. In addition to general admission tickets to the alumni game, there will also be dressing room passes that provide special access to the former NHL players during the first intermission.

This is the Winter Classic’s sixth year, and the fifth that features an NHL alumni team. Toronto is the remaining original six team; it will be featured in 2021.

The 2019 classic raised $58,000 for Rotary Park. Severson encourages local residents to visit the facility located at the west end of downtown Brockville and see for themselves how far the park enhancement project has progressed.

Dad was a doctor. Son wants to become a doctor.

Great.

Dad was a goaltender. Son wants to be a goaltender.

OK … hold that thought.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere, veteran of 597 NHL regular-season games, was talking about his three young sons and the seemingly inevitable family footprint. Not only is his oldest, 9-year-old Maxime, playing goal, but the two younger ones want to play follow the leader.

“I think I had the influence on my oldest,” Giguere said in a phone interview from Montreal. “I’m not surprised. The oldest is influencing the other two.

“I don’t know if I want my kids to be goalies. Even at 9 years old, you hear people blaming the goalie. What are you guys talking about? It’s a good learning experience for him.”

Giguere certainly would know, having played 16 NHL seasons, including a Stanley Cup championship with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007. He finished his career with the Colorado Avalanche in 2013-14 and took a memorable lap at Honda Center with a former teammate, Ducks forward Teemu Selanne, on April 13, 2014, in what was the final regular-season game for each.

Giguere, who will turn 40 on May 16, may have retired from the NHL but hardly is retired from the workforce. He is a studio analyst with TVA Sports in Montreal and is a youth hockey coach, getting to work with his children.

“This is the one thing I can really give to my kids,” he said. “The one thing I was good at, the one thing I can teach them. It’s been a blast.”

This weekend, the best of his NHL past will come to the forefront again. The band is getting back together at Honda Center.

Giguere is scheduled to be part of the ceremony to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Ducks’ Stanley Cup championship before their game against the Washington Capitals on Sunday (9:30 p.m. ET; NHLN, PRIME, CSN-DC, NHL.TV). They were the first team from California to win the Cup, and the gathering is the first time the players have reunited as a group, according to the Ducks.

“When you win something like that with a bunch of guys, everybody says when you see them again it’s like you’ve never left each other,” Giguere said.

The Ducks were coming off a 98-point season in 2005-06, so expectations were high for 2006-07. They went 48-20-14 (110 points) during the regular season, and defensemen Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger were Norris Trophy finalists. Giguere was 36-10-8, and his 2.26 goals-against average, fifth-best in the League, was his lowest since the 2001-02 season.

He remembers they had a feeling in training camp that it might be a special season.

“You can feel that and still not win,” Giguere said. “It can still be a special year and you don’t go all the way. You can have a really good season. We had one goal and it was the Stanley Cup. From the beginning, that’s all we talked about.”

They eliminated the Minnesota Wild, Vancouver Canucks and Detroit Red Wings to reach the Final, then defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games. The Ducks clinched the Cup in front of their own fans, winning 6-2 in Game 5.

“Honestly, it was the hardest game I ever played in my life,” Giguere said. “It was very stressful. You didn’t want to have to go back to Ottawa and play there and try to win that game. At the same time, the guys in front of me played so well. It was just amazing.

“The last 10 minutes, being up 6-2, it gave you the chance to really enjoy the moment, breathe in the crowd, knowing you were going to win. … It was relief for me because I was dead tired.”

There was so much more going on behind the scenes. Giguere’s son Maxime was born in April 2007, shortly before the playoffs, and required eye surgery. Giguere returned to action near the end of the first-round series against Minnesota, and among the most endearing photos after the Cup-clinching game was of Giguere cradling his infant son in his arms and another of Maxime in the Stanley Cup.

“My oldest wants to watch it [the DVD] every time he has a friend over,” Giguere said. “He likes to show off. He’s in the video too. Time flies though. I can’t believe he is almost 10.”

Maxime is blind in his right eye but Giguere said he is managing to be “a pretty good little goalie.”

“[Blindness] doesn’t stop him,” Giguere said. “He won’t let that get in the way. He’s got big dreams.”

In a lab in Lowell, Massachusetts, there is a belief in a better way to clean without using potentially dangerous chemicals.
“There is still a perception that the stronger it smells, the better it works, the stronger the bleach, the more it will kill the germs,” Liz Harriman, deputy director of UMass Lowell’s Toxics Use Reduction Institute, said Thursday.

The work done in TURI’s labs taking on renewed urgency in recent weeks after two chemical reaction incidents in the Boston area.

On Nov. 7, Ryan Baldera, 32, died after he was exposed to a dangerous chemical reaction at the Burlington Buffalo Wild Wings, where he worked as general manager.

Then, earlier this week, three were taken to the hospital as a precaution after a chemical reaction forced the evacuation of a Red Robin in Woburn.

“Very sad, there is no reason that sort of thing should happen today,” Harriman said. “It certainly wakes up everyone that there is something that needs to be done.”

Inside the TURI lab, researchers and students work to create and test less dangerous cleaning solutions.

“What we have been doing over the years is validating those products that come out on the market now are as effective, if not more effective, than more traditional hazardous solvents,” said Dr. Jason Marshall, TURI’s lab director. “We have helped, on the industrial side, we have helped companies replace thousands of pounds of hazardous materials. On the consumer side, the households side, we have educated a lot of people on finding safer alternatives.”

The goal here is to show, not tell, those who need cleaning supplies that there are alternatives that don’t sacrifice quality or effectiveness.

“The alternatives that are out there are safer to the people who have to handle them everyday,” Marshall said. “They are safer for the environment when they get disposed of.”

Through the years, the lab has found traction. But there is still work to be done.

“There is clearly a need for better training, and better education, and hopefully, we can save lives down the road,” Harriman said.

No player has scored 130 points in an NHL season since Mario Lemieux and Jaromír Jágr each achieved the feat for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1995-96. When they reached the milestone, the all-time greats became just the fourth pair of linemates — and the only pair of linemates that didn’t include a guy named Wayne Gretzky — to score 130 points or more in the same season in NHL history. Gretzky and Jari Kurri were the first pair to do it in 1984-85, when they scored 208 and 135 points, respectively, for the Edmonton Oilers; Gretzky and Kurri were arguably better the following season, when they scored 215 and 131 points, again for the Oilers. And in his first season after being traded away from the Oilers, Gretzky and Los Angeles Kings linemate Bernie Nicholls scored 168 and 150 points, respectively.1

Scoring 130 or more points in an NHL season is obviously difficult enough — it’s only been accomplished 49 times, and by just 23 players. Gretzky did it 13 times, Lemieux did it six times, Phil Esposito did it four times, Marcel Dionne did it three times — and no one else did it more than twice. Two linemates scoring 130 points or more in the same season is therefore vanishingly rare — and there have never been two teams with two linemates scoring 130 points or more in league history.

But that may change by the end of this season, especially if Brad Marchand and David Pastrňák in Boston and Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in Edmonton have their say.

At the moment, Marchand and Pastrňák are on pace for 133 and 130 points, while McDavid and Draisaitl are on pace for 149 and 146 points, according to Hockey-Reference.com’s adjusted points totals.2 There is a lot of hockey left to play — the Bruins and Oilers each have more than 50 games remaining on their schedules — but none of the four players has showed any sign of slowing down to this point: Each player has scored a point or more in at least 74 percent of the games he’s played.
