The first 50 goal scorer ever


NHL'S FIRST
50 GOAL SCORER

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the NHL's first 50 goal scorer?

The first NHL player to score 50 goals in a single season was Maurice Richard of the Montreal Canadiens in the 1944-45 season, a feat which would not be matched for 16 years until Bernard Geoffrion of the Montreal Canadiens scored 50 goals in the 1960-61 season.

Maurice Richard finished the season with 50 goals in 50 games played.

On December 30, 1981, in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers, Wayne Gretzky scored his fifth goal of the night into an empty. This was Gretzky's 50th goal in a mere 39 games, a record that will stand for a long time to come.

During the 1970-71 season Phil Esposito of the Boston Bruins became the first player to reach 60 goals and 70 goals in a season, finishing with 76 goals for the season.

Edmonton Oilers' Wayne Gretzky was the first player to reach 80 goals and 90 goals in the 1981-82 season finishing with a record 92 goals.

No player has yet reached the 100 goal mark.
