    Who has scored fewest goals in his NHL career which included at least one 30-goal season? Thanks.

    Mike Green may have it.

    145 career goals

    for forwards, my best bet so far is Juneau at 156 goals

    The question is a bit ambiguous, and here's why - I ran the queries against the database.
    Here's the list of "top" 5 players without any condition (the columns are Name, Active, Pos, Seasons, Games, Goals):

    TOM WEBSTER N R 6 102 33
    KEN HODGE JR. N C 4 142 39
    DIMITRI KVARTALNOV N L 2 112 42
    CHRISTOPHER VALENTINE N C 3 105 43
    KYLE CONNOR Y L 3 131 46


    But do we really want Kyle Connor on such a list? Do we want Kvartalnov on such a list?

    First, let's try removing players who are active:

    TOM WEBSTER N R 6 102 33
    KEN HODGE JR. N C 4 142 39
    DIMITRI KVARTALNOV N L 2 112 42
    CHRISTOPHER VALENTINE N C 3 105 43
    ROSAIRE PAIEMENT N C 5 191 48


    To remove Kvartalnov and other flukes, let's require six NHL seasons at least:

    TOM WEBSTER N R 6 102 33
    REG KERR N C 7 263 66
    BOB CRAWFORD N R 9 246 71
    WARREN YOUNG N C 7 236 72
    AL MCDONOUGH N R 7 237 73


    What about really peaky ones? Let's put active back in, but require 500 NHL games and 10 seasons.

    CHRIS CLARK N R 12 607 103
    DAVID CLARKSON Y R 11 570 114
    NIKOLAY KULEMIN N L 10 669 121
    DAVID BOOTH N L 11 530 124
    PIERRE PLANTE N R 10 599 125


    And let's now try the PPG (added an extra column)
    CHRIS CLARK N R 12 607 103 0.17
    SCOTT GOMEZ N C 17 1079 181 0.17
    GREG GILBERT N L 16 837 150 0.18
    MIKE GREEN Y D 14 810 145 0.18
    NIKOLAY KULEMIN N L 10 669 121 0.18


    Pick your name. :)
    Unfortunately, the board gobbles up extra space and the nice formatting I had.
    And the full file is attached for your toying, all the way down to #99.

    What happened to him to play such few games after this 30 goals season to end up in Europe 2 years later ?
    So Cheechoo syndrome existed before Cheecho played in the NHL.

    Ya, wtf? Figured he just wasn't that good, but nah, his stats look decent. 67 points in 60 games, then split time between AHL and NHL the year after- put up 17 points in 23 games. Next year same thing, 11 points in 22, so yeah some regression, but he was still .5 ppg.. then he just screwed off and killed it in Germany for the rest of his career. That's a weird case man, idk. High scoring 80s and all that, but AHL a year after being ppg in the NHL? Huh?

    A bit OT but I don't really agree to the notion of Kvartalnov being a fluke, he was really good offensively but wasn't liked by the then-Bruins coach Brian Sutter because he was also rather soft.

    He's a fluke from a statistical point of view, since had so few seasons in the NHL.

    Maybe outlier or so would be a fairer way to put it.

    Petr Prucha immediately comes to mind, as does Marek Svatos.

    There's a file up in the thread you can download and dissect.
