Since an era in NHL history seems to be coming to a close as the league is about to lock out its players to begin next season. This makes the time from 2005/06 to 2011/12 a period between lockouts with a common CBA. We can look back upon this period and see who was successful in the period by looking at the players who lead the time period in goals and assists. Today I am looking at the top point scorers in this period. These are the most dominant offensive players of the time period.
Here are the top 20 point scorers since the last lockout:
|5||Martin St Louis|
The top point scorer since the lack lockout was Alexander Ovechkin. This is quite an achievement for him because he was a rookie in the first season of the period. The next player on the list is Joe Thornton who was in the prime of his career when the period began. Next comes another rookie in 2005/06 in Sidney Crosby. Crosby has the second fewest games played on this list due to his concussions. That makes his appearance more impressive. Next come Henrik Sedin, Martin St Louis and Ilya Kovalchuk. They are followed by Jarome Iginla, Daniel Sedin, Pavel Datsyuk and Dany Heatley. The remaining players tend to be more closely ranked. The only player on the list who missed a season in the period is Evgeni Malkin who is 14th. He was a rookie in 2006/07. Olli Jokinen is another interesting player in 20th place. He does not appear in either the top goals list or the top assists list but is on the top points list.
The top point scorers in the last seven year period between the lockouts is a good group of players. They have had sustained success in the period.
