Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and the Most Points Per Game in NHL History
No one in NHL history has averaged two points a game. That would be a phenomenal feat over a standard or lengthy career.
Gretzky came as close as anyone ever has or probably ever will. Even the best the game has to offer today, arguably Sidney Crosby, is a full half point behind The Great One.
Gretzky finished up with 1.92 points per game, a bit more than a smidgen ahead of Lemieux at 1.88. Then the dropoff to New York Islanders’ great Mike Bossy at 1.50 (1.497 to be exact).
Crosby sits in fourth at 1.41.
These are the top 20 skaters in NHL history with the highest points per game averages. You’re watching a few today – the three other actives are Crosby’s Pittsburgh Penguins teammate, Evgeni Malkin, 20-year veteran (and New Jersey Devil), Jaromir Jagr and three-time and current MVP, the Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin.Follow @VinGetz
