George Hainsworth Won More Shutouts For The Montreal Canadiens Than Any Other Goalie

Like many all-time historical team records, this one – most shutouts – is held by the Montreal Canadiens. They’re approaching a nice round 500.

It will still take a while. The Canadiens have 474 shutout wins as of the date of this post, an average of about five a season. So, sometime a bit before 2020, the Habs will hit the 500 mark.

The Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings are the only other two teams with at least 400.

Here are the rankings for all 30 squads.
