3 -- Players who have led the NHL in rookie scoring during the regular season and playoffs, including New Jersey's Scott Gomez in 1999-2000. The other two are Colorado's Milan Hejduk in 1998-99 and Philadelphia's Brian Propp in 1979-80.
4 -- Overtime goals scored by Toronto's Mats Sundin last season, setting a single-season record. Regular-season overtime was introduced in 1983-84.
5 -- Consecutive 40-goal seasons by Flyers left wing John LeClair.
5.5 -- Average goals per NHL game last season, up from 5.3 in the previous two seasons, but still not close to the 7.2 posted in 1992-93.
7 -- Years since a Canadian franchise last won the Stanley Cup. It is the longest stretch of non-Canadian championships in NHL history.
8 -- Expansion teams out of 13 from 1970-71 to 1999-00 failed to improve their record in their second season. That doesn't bode well for the second-year Atlanta Thrashers.
9 -- Empty-net goals scored by Pavel Bure last season, most in the NHL. Nobody else had more than three.
13 -- Consecutive 20-goal seasons posted by Brett Hull, making him the leader among active players.
15 -- Consecutive seasons by Steve Yzerman as captain of the Red Wings. It is the longest consecutive captaincy in NHL history.
18-4-2 -- Record by the Phoenix Coyotes last season when Keith Tkachuk scored a point.
55 -- Brian Leetch's top point total since Mark Messier left the Rangers after the 1997 season. Four of Leetch's five most productive seasons occurred with Messier as a teammate, including campaigns of 102, 85, 79 and 78 points.
62 -- Games missed by Jaromir Jagr since 1990-91. The Penguins are 18-33-11-1 in those games.
75 -- Years in the NHL for the Rangers, Blackhawks, and Red Wings.
93 -- Goals the Bure Brothers (Pavel-58 and Valeri-35) combined for last season, an NHL record for siblings.
138 -- Consecutive games played by Daymond Langkow, the longest active streak on the Flyers.
444 -- Career regular-season victories by Patrick Roy, who needs three more to tie Terry Sawchuk's all-time record.
610 -- Goals scored by Brett Hull, tying him with his father Bobby for ninth place on the all-time list. Brett enters this season trailing eighth-place Mario Lemieux (613) by three.
999 -- Career points by Vincent Damphousse, who is entering his 15th NHL season.
1,144 -- Regular-season victories by Detroit coach Scotty Bowman, more than all but two individuals have ever coached (Al Arbour, 1,606, and Dick Irvin, 1,437).
1,558 -- Games played by defenseman Larry Murphy, second on the NHL's all-time list to Gordie Howe (1,767).
17,000,000 -- The Tampa Bay Lightning's estimated payroll, in U.S. dollars. It is the lowest in the league, even below the two expansion teams.
