The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NHL records that will never be broken

NHL records that will never be broken

Records that will never be broken!

They say records are made to be broken. But sometimes that is easier said than done. Here are some NHL records that most likely will never be broken.

If you believe the opposite, you should place a bet on it, as this will give you a huge return at all online casinos. The site Casino Pilot has the best ones in store for all Canadian hockey fans. 

Wayne Gretzky’s 2857 Points

We begin this list with perhaps the most obvious record: Wayne Gretzky’s score of an incredible 2,857 points.

That is 936 points more than second-placed Jaromir Jagr, who also played 200 more games in the league.

Even more impressive: if you were to take away all of Gretzky’s 894 goals (which is also a record) and count only his 1,963 assists, he would still be at the top of the list.

You do not get the nickname “The Great One” for no reason.

Bill Mosienko’s 21s Hat trick

What can you do in 21 seconds? I barely have time to grab a beer from the fridge. At least not if I am already seated in the couch. Maybe if I am standing up and take a run for the kitchen. But it is a nail-biter.

If anyone at Madison Square Garden on March 23, 1952, went to the bar for a quick beer, they probably missed a piece of hockey history.

Because 21 seconds was all Chicago Blackhawks Bill Mosienko needed to score a hat trick against the New York Rangers.

That is the fastest a hat trick that has ever been scored. The second fastest hat trick is Montreal Canadiens legend Jean Beliveau scoring three goals in 44 seconds in 1955.

Henry Richards 11 Stanley Cup Titles

The Montreal Canadiens winning the Stanley Cup in the 50s and 60s was a frequent habit.

A central figure in the oh-so-dominant Canadiens was Henri Richard. The club icon won the Stanley a whopping 11 times between 1956 and 1973.

Here we can also sneak in that the Montreal Canadiens have been crowned champions 24 (!) times, the last being in 1993. Which is also a record that will not be broken in the foreseeable future. Especially since the runners-up, Toronto Maple Leafs, are 11 titles behind.

Glenn Halls Incredible Stamina

Many of the above records will not be broken because of how the NHL has changed over time.

Here is another example:

It used to be that the main goalie played unless he was injured. Period. If the goalie managed to stay whole and healthy, well, then there was no reason he should not play.

So, in short, Glenn Hall holds the record for staying whole and healthy. The goaltending legend played an unprecedented 502 (!) full regular season games in a row.

This, even though, until very late in his career, he did not play with any protection on his head.

How was the streak broken? Before a game against the Boston Bruins in 1962, Hall was bending down to fix his equipment when he suddenly felt a pain in his lower back.

Hall, who suddenly was unable to move properly, chose to play the game anyway. But in the end, he had to throw in the towel and leave the ice.

Washington Capitals Terrible Debut

This is the least flattering record on this list.

The year was 1974 and the Washington Capitals were about to play their historic first season in the NHL. It ended in a monumental collapse. Not that anyone thought that they would win a Stanley Cup title. But more than eight wins one might have expected? This makes it the weakest performance ever by a team since the NHL season started to get played over 80 games.

Two teams have been sniffing at this lousy record. The Ottawa Senators and San Jose Sharks won only ten, and eleven, games respectively in their first season in 1992/93.
