    Kind of a dumb question, just was randomly thinking...What's the most minutes played in a game? I'm pretty sure it'll be a defenseman.

    First of all, most in a 60 minute game...and also, most in a game + overtime.

    Anyone?

    OT, but I went to Hockey Reference to use the Play Index in order to find an answer, and found a weird occurrence: the TOI seems to be completely whack. I'm not sure if it's my query or the data, but for example, Eric Weinrich is listed as having played almost 80 minutes in a 4-2 regular season win. It's not an isolated problem, either- he's one of 18 skaters with 60 or minutes attributed to them in a game.

    You really should specify the time frame. Because in early era hockey (prior to 1925 or so), star players played the full 60 minutes without substitution.

    Bill Quackenbush was a notorious huge IT logger, but I have absolutely no specific evidence (game log...) about it.

    Dan Boyle played 36:35 in this game http://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/200512220NYR.html, and I remember it being mentioned at the time that it was a record for a 60 minute regular season game since the stat was officially tracked by the league.

    Of course, that only goes back to 97-98. Prior to that there were obviously many instances of defencemen playing more than that.

    I'd suggest looking at Chris Pronger's 2006 playoff ice time stats with the Oilers.

    It's was common for him to get over 30-40 minutes of ice time per game.

    Game 3 - Round 1 of the 2006 playoff series with the Red Wings - Pronger's ice time - 47:17

    No idea how long he played but I remember that Zubov logged an insane amount of minutes in the last game of the finals against the Sabres.
