The Art Ross Trophy was introduced in 1947-48 to honour the National Hockey League player each season that led the league in points. The Montreal Canadiens are arguably the best team in NHL history so it would only seem fitting to have a few Montreal player's names engraved on the Art Ross. In fact, five different players from the Canadiens have won the award. Three of those five players won the trophy on more than one occasion.

Scoring 50 or more goals in a single season in junior hockey is one thing. Repeating the accomplishment in the pros is another. Four players that scored 50 or more in a single season in the Ontario Hockey League went on to do the same in the ECHL (East Coast Hockey League). The ECHL is basically a farm league for the American Hockey League. In turn, the AHL is the main farm league for the National Hockey League.

Each team in the National Hockey League currently plays an 82 game regular season schedule each year. For a time in the 1990's, the league moved up to an 84 game schedule. On rare occasions, a player is traded mid-season and the schedules of the two teams involved in the trade are not aligned. What can result is a player appearing in more games than the regularly scheduled number.

The crazy high offense days of the National Hockey League are long gone, dying in the middle to late 1990's. During the 1980's and 1990's, when players like Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull were in their prime, goals went into NHL nets at very high rates. Just the three mentioned players scored 70 or more goals in more than one season. Nowadays in the NHL, it's hard enough to find one 50 goal scorer each seasons.

The Ontario Hockey League provides 20 of the Canadian Hockey League's 60 major junior hockey teams. The OHL also provided the top four arenas in the CHL in terms of total attendance. Interestingly, the QMHJL provided just one team in the top ten but that team was the Quebec Remparts and they were number one in the country. The OHL should lead the country in attendance, considering Ontario is the most populous province in the country.

Often discussed but rarely denied is the fact that Bobby Orr is the greatest defenseman to ever play in the National Hockey League. Orr dominated the league as a member of the Boston Bruins and had his career cut short by devestating knee injuries. Now enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, Bobby still holds records in the NHL some three plus decades after retiring.

Ivan 'Ching' Johnson was an early era legend in the National Hockey League and is enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Once a candidate for the Hart Memorial Trophy as NHL MVP, he fell just a ballot behind the great Howie Morenz.

The Anaheim Ducks entered the National Hockey League for the 1993-94 season. The team has already captured one Stanley Cup and their individual single season record for goals, assists and points aren't too shabby, either.
