    Why does the NHL give out 2 assists for a goal? Usually, the person who got the second assist had nothing to do with the goal being scored, yet he gets a point on the play. In European leagues, including soccer, they only give out one assist. I think that makes alot more sence.

    What makes SENSE is that there are plays where both players who got the assists were part of the play. Why should one player be snubbed just because he made the first pass, instead of the second? Pffft.

    Some times only one assist (or none) are awarded.

    It would be interesting if they showed primary and secondary assists in the scoring race.
