Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Edmonton Oilers reached a career milestone last night by hitting the 100-point mark for the first time in his 12-year NHL career. Nugent-Hopkins recorded an empty-net assist against the Anaheim Ducks, securing his place in history as only the sixth player to achieve this feat in their 12th season or later.


The other players to achieve this historic milestone include Gordie Howe (23rd season, 1968-69), Bobby Hull (12th season, 1968-69), Johnny Bucyk (16th season, 1970-71), Jean Ratelle (12th season, 1971-72), and Steven Stamkos (14th season, 2021-22).

The 29-year-old center has been an integral part of the Oilers' success this season, helping them secure a playoff spot in their competitive division. His consistency and offensive prowess have made him a fan favorite in Edmonton, and his achievement last night cements his place as one of the best players in franchise history.
