All the talk of decreased goal scoring over the past 10 NHL seasons is very much warranted, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been some impressive individual scoring performances.
When looking at the top 10 scorers of the past 10 seasons, it’s no surprise to see Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin at the top of the list. The two have gone head-to-head for almost every major award in that span and have become the faces of the league.
The rest of the list is a who’s-who of the league’s best, most consistent players. Here are the top scorers since the 2006-07 season.
10. Anze Kopitar, Kings: 243 goals, 441 assists, 684 points in 764 games.
The Kings’ star center has been a model of consistency since breaking into the league in 2006-07. He has six 70+ point seasons and two 30-goal seasons.
9. Ryan Getzlaf, Ducks: 207 goals, 495 assist
