Seattle Hockey “By the Numbers”

            It’s a fact that we sports fans love our statistics.  Not only do we like to pore over the stat sheets before and after games, but the historical stuff too.  Who scored the most goals?  Played in the most games?  Got the most penalty minutes?  These are the kind of questions that fans want answered.  Unfortunately statistical records from the earliest days of hockey are difficult to compile, and it would take hundreds of hours of research to figure out who were the top players in Seattle hockey history.  Fortunately, you don’t have to spend those countless afternoons at the library… I’ve done it for you!  What follows is the “All-Time Seattle Top 10” players in a number of categories.  The lists include players from every era, from 1915 through today, though it should be noted that I’ve only included the highest level teams in the city.  Only stats from regular season games played in a Seattle uniform are included.
