    They had ties back then so several of those shutouts were 0-0 games. Only 16 of his 22 wins were a shutouts, which means six shutouts came in 0-0 ties. He did only allow 6 goals against in those remaining six wins so overall in 22 wins he allowed six goals in total.

    Correct — my mistake.

    Even so, 22 shutouts and 22 wins — unbelievable and likely untouchable.

    Not to detract from Hainsworth's 22 shutout season, but the late 20's were ridiculously low scoring. 6 other goalies hit double digit shutout totals that season(in a ten team league). 10 of the 15 all time single season shutout holders were recorded between 1925-30.

    Absolutely — but we are still talking about 22 vs 15, which is the gap between Hainsworth and a handful of others, most of whom were his contemporaries. That’s a huge spread no matter how we slice it.

    In the modern era, Tony O put up 15, and I believe Hasek had a season of 12 or 13. But those numbers are just so far from 22 — anyone putting up 15 in the future would need to add 50% more to squeak by Hainsworth, and I’m not even adjusting for length of season or number of starts.

    Can’t see this record going down unless the nets shrink and the regular season is 100+ games.

    Oh, I totally agree. I think 15 is pretty safe for 2nd, let alone anyone coming close to toppling 22.

    The NHL history nerd in me just wanted to put some context into the time that Hainsworth played.

    For me, the most amazing record held by Gretzky regarding assists is number of consecutive 100 assists seasons. He had 11. Orr and Lemieux had one 100 assist season each during their careers and no one else has done it even once.

    did some detective work but finally found some numbers for this.

    henrik and daniel sedin assisted on the same goal a record 313 times.

    by comparison, number two is gretzky and kurri, who assisted on the same goal 204 times.
