If a game is tied after regulation time (which lasts three 20-minutes periods), there will be a period of "overtime" to decide the winner. The player who scores during this extra five minutes is given the overtime goal. All overtime in the NHL is sudden death—meaning the first team to score is the winner—so the player who scores in overtime also has the game-winning goal.

If a game is tied after regulation time (which lasts three 20-minutes periods), there will be as many 20-minute periods of "overtime" as necessary during the playoffs to determine a winner. The player who scores during this extra time is given the overtime goal. All overtime in the NHL is sudden death—meaning the first team to score is the winner—so the player who scores in overtime also has the game-winning goal.

Minimum 30 assists

A penalty is given to a player for committing an infraction during the game. The length of the penalty varies depending on the severity of the offence. The amount of penalty minutes recorded for statistical purposes are:

  • minor – 2 minutes
  • double minor – 4 minutes
  • major – 5 minutes
  • misconduct – 10 minutes
  • game misconduct – 10 minutes

Plus-minus is a statistic that indicates the relative goal differential when a player is on the ice. If the player is on the ice when his team scores even-strength or short-handed, he is given +1; if he is on the ice when the opposing team scores even-strength or short-handed, he is given -1.

When a team is given a penalty for committing an infraction (such as tripping another player), the offending player must sit in the penalty box, and his team must play with one fewer player on the ice. The penalized team is said to be "short-handed", while the other team has a "powerplay". If a player scores while his team is on the powerplay, this is recorded as a powerplay goal.

The statistics listed include the 2018–19 NHL regular season and 2019 playoffs.

All-time leaders (goaltenders)

Active goaltenders (during 2019–20 NHL season) are listed in boldface.

A goaltender achieves a shutout when he does not allow a goal against him, and plays the full game.

Goals against average is the average number of goals a goaltender allows over a 60-minute period (the regulation length of a game). It is calculated by multiplying the goals against by 60 minutes, then dividing by the total minutes played.
