Maple Leafs milestones: 20 game mark

New, comments

Have any Leafs hit their big numbers yet?

20 games into the Toronto Maple Leafs season and we’ve seen some players hit big numbers. Morgan Rielly and Nazem Kadri hit 400 and 500 games played respectively - and all as Maple Leafs. Patrick Marleau climbs closer and closer to top 10 all-time games played every day.

Others aren’t doing so hot, like the pointless Martin Marincin or barely there Frederik Gauthier. Now, play isn’t all about points but....this article is.

Player Milestones

Originally, the Goal and Assist dates were calculated using the players current point/goal/assist per game rate based on the NHL games played in the previous three seasons, to avoid low scoring/usage rookie years and to reflect their most recent performance. Now they’ve been updated to use current season per game rates. They could reach these milestones sooner or later than predicted.

Frederik Andersen
This season: 16GP - 0.934sv% - 2.08GAA - 1SO

Will hit game #300 in 30 games.
Andersen has played 13 of 15 games, at his current pace game #300 should be game #53 against the Ottawa Senators.
Andersen reached 150 wins this season
Andersen got win #150 in Dallas as the Leafs defeated the Stars 7-4 in game #4 on October 10th.
4 shutouts gets him to 20
Andersen has one shutout so far, a 5-0 win against the Penguins on November 3rd.
Still waiting for goal #1
No goals for Freddie yet.

Connor Brown
This season: 20GP - 3G - 4A - 7Pts
171GP - 35G - 35A - 70Pts
(0.4PPG - 0.2GPG - 0.2APG)

Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #200 on Thurs. Dec. 6th vs Detroit
Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #250 on Tues. April 1st @ NY Islanders
Brown has played all 15 games so far this season, so he’s on his way to reaching these goals.
He is 13 goals away from 50 - This could happen on Sat. March 23rd vs NY Rangers
He has 3 goals so far this season, and his current pace only has him scoring 12 this season.
He is 11 assists away from 50 - This could happen on Fri. February 19th @ St. Louis
Connor is on pace for 22 assists this season, so his 50th assist could show up earlier than the original March 23rd estimate.
He is 23 points away from 100 - This could happen on Sat. March 23rd vs NY Rangers
Brown is looking at 33 points this season, scoring at his expected 0.4PPG rate so March 23rd is still looking good for #100.

Tyler Ennis
This season: 17GP - 2G - 2A - 4Pts
Past 3 seasons: 147GP - 16G - 30A - 46Pts
Past 3 season average: (0.31PPG - 0.11GPG - 0.2APG)

Played game #500 on Thurs. Oct. 27th @ WInnipeg
Ennis has played 17 of 20 games so far this season, and his 500th game was actually a bit later, on Oct. 27th in Winnipeg then estimated.
He is 18 goals away from 125 - This most likely won’t happen this season.
He has scored twice in 17 games, just over once every 10 games leaving him with about four goals this season.
He is 20 assists away from 175 - This most likely won’t happen this season.
He also has two assists, so again he’s on a four assist pace.
He is 13 points away from 275. This could happen on March 16th @ Ottawa
He has four points, getting one about once every four games. This pushes his 275th point back to March from the Feb. 2nd.

Jake Gardiner
This season: 20GP - 1G - 8A - 9Pts
Past 3 season stats: 243GP - 21G - 105A - 126Pts
Past 3 season average:(0.52PPG - 0.09GPG - 0.43APG)

Played game #500 on Sat. Oct. 27th vs Winnipeg
Jake has played all 20 games and hit the big 5-0-0 with the Jets* in town.
He is 7 goals away from 50 - This could happen on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
At his current rate, he’ll only score about four goals this season, so unless he picks up the pace we won’t see 50 until next season.
175 assists milestone reached Oct. 7th vs Chicago
He is 19 assists away from 200 - This could happen on Sat March 9th @ Edmonton
Jake has eight assists so far this season, and needs 19 more to get to 200. He’s nabbing one assist every 3ish games so far this season.
He is 1 point away from 225 - This could happen on Wed. Nov 21st @ Carolina
With nine points so far this season, he should get to 225 in the next couple of games.
He is 35 points away from 250 - This could happen on Mon. March 25th vs Florida
Jake’s a little bit slower this season, going 0.45PPG vs his 0.52PPG average so dates are getting pushed back a wee bit, but he should see 250 points near the end of this season still.

Frederik Gauthier
This Season: 17GP - 0G - 1A - 1Pt
Past 3 seasons stats: 37GP - 3G - 2A - 5Pts
Past 3 seasons average: (0.14PPG - 0.08GPG - 0.06APG)

Game #50 played on Thurs. November 9th vs New Jersey
Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #100 on Wed. Feb. 1st @ Detroit
He’s played 17 of 20 games so far, so he could hit 100 earlier than the original Feb. 27th estimate.
He is 7 goals away from 10 - This most likely won’t happen this season
Gauthier has yet to score a goal this season.
He is 7 assists away from 10 - This most likely won’t happen this season
He has one assist so far this year, and he’s looking to end the year with four or five.
He is 4 points away from 10 - This could happen by Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
He is 9 points away from 15 - This most likely won’t happen this season
His current PPG rate has him scoring only four or five points, so he may get to ten by seasons end.

Ron Hainsey
This season: 20GP - 2G - 6A - 8Pts
Past three seasons stats: 233GP - 13G - 46A - 59Pts
Past three seasons average: (0.25PPG - 0.06GPG - 0.2APG)

Played game #1000 on Thurs. Nov. 1st vs Dallas
Hainsey has played every game this season and got his silver stick on Nov. 1st.
He is 10 goals away from 75 - This most likely won’t happen this season
He’ll most likely have eight goals at the end of the season.
225 assist milestone reached on Oct. 13th vs Washington
He is 19 assists away from 250 - He may reach this by April 6th @ Montreal
Hainsey has six assists so far this season, upping his pace from 0.2APG to 0.3APG.
He is 16 points away from 300 - This could happen by Thurs. Feb. 21st vs Washington
Playing with Morgan Rielly is helping Hainsey’s totals, his old pace wouldn’t get him to 300 points but now that he almost doubles it (0.4PPG vs 0.25PPG), he could get there.

Justin Holl - One season
This season: 1GP - 0G - 0A - 0Pts
Last Season: 2GP - 2G - 0A - 2Pts

He’s only played one game so far this season, so he’s on pace to play only five games.

Zach Hyman
This season: 20GP - 1G - 7A - 8Pts
Past three season stats: 180GP - 29G - 45A - 74Pts
Past three seasons average: (0.41PPG - 0.16GPG - 0.25APG)

Played game #200 on Fri. Nov. 16th @ Anaheim
Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #250 on Wed. March 13th vs Chicago
Hyman has played every game and hit 200 on Friday night in Anaheim. He’s looking to make it to 250 on schedule.
He is 20 goals away from 50 - This most likely won’t happen this season
With just one goal so far, he’s looking to end the year with three or four goals.
50 assist milestone reached on Oct. 15th vs Los Angeles
Hyman reached 50 assists much earlier than expected, but probably won’t get to 75 or 100 this season,
75 point milestone reached Oct. 7th vs Ottawa
He is 18 points away from 100 - This could happen on Sat. March 2nd vs Buffalo
Hyman’s play has pushed up his chances of hitting 100 points to the start of March rather than the end.

Andreas Johnsson - One season
This season: 15GP - 2G - 1A - 3Pts
Last season - 9GP - 2G - 1A - 3Pts
(0.23PPG - 0.22GPG - 0.11APG - based on 82 game season)

Played game #10 on Wed. Oct. 3rd vs Montreal
Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #50 on Sat. March 2nd vs Buffalo
Johnsson got game #10 in game #1 this season, but only playing 75% of the games means he won’t get to 50 until March.
He is 6 goals away from 10 - This could happen on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
Johnsson’s scoring less than last season, and his rate of play gives him a chance to hit 10 goals this season, but not a great one.
He is 8 assists away from 10 - This could happen on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
He has one assist so far, and could just squeak out 10 by the end of the season,
He is 4 points away from 10 - This could happen on Fri. Feb. 1st @ Detroit
With three points so far, he only needs four more to get 10 on his career. His usage pushed this milestone two months back.

Nazem Kadri
This season: 20GP - 7G - 7A - 14Pts
Past three season stats: 238GP - 81G - 80A - 161Pts
Past three season average: (0.68PPG - 0.34GPG - 0.34APG)

Played game #500 on Mon. Oct. 29th vs Calgary
He reached this milestone on time.
150 goal milestone reached Nov. 9th vs New Jersey
He is 23 goals away from 175 - This could happen on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
He’s on pace for 28 goals, so he should get to 175 by the end of the season.
175 assist milestone reached on Fri. Nov. 16th @ Anaheim
He is 25 assists away from 200 - This could happen on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
He’s looking to score about 30 assists this season, so he should get to #200.
He is 23 points away from 350 - This could happen on Wed. Feb. 6th vs Ottawa
It would be great to hit a milestone against the team we stole Kadri from at the draft.

Kasperi Kapanen
This season: 20GP - 8G - 6A - 14Pts
Past three season stats: 55GP - 8G - 2A - 10Pts
Past three season average: (0.18PPG - 0.15GPG - 0.04APG)

Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #100 on Mon. Jan. 14th vs Colorado
He’s on pace for this, as he’s played every game so far this season.
He played his 10th game on Oct. 13th vs Washington
He is 9 goals away from 25 - This could happen on Feb. 14th @ Vegas
Kapanen is scoring a goal about every three games and could get to 25 total this season.
He is 2 assists away from 10 - This could happen Nov. 28th vs San Jose
He is 17 assists away from 25 - This could happen on Fri. March 15th vs Philadelphia
Kapanen is getting an assist every three games as well, so he could get to 10 by the end of the month and 25 by the time the Leafs have clinched a playoff spot.
He is 1 point away from 25 - This could happen on Wed. Nov 21st @ Carolina.
Originally I figured he would take until March 23rd to get to 25 points, but he already has 14 this season and just needs one more to get to 25. That should happen in the next couple of games.

Par Lindholm
This season: 20GP - 1G - 5A - 6Pts

Scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 13th vs Washington
Got his first NHL assist on Oct. 9th vs Dallas
Scored his first NHL point on Oct. 9th vs Dallas
Lindholm is a rookie, so everything he does is a milestone!

Martin Marincin
This season: 6GP - 0G - 0A - 0Pts
Past three seasons: 92GP - 2G - 12A - 14Pts
Past three season average: (0.15PPG - 0.02GPG - 0.13APG)

Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #200 on Sat. Feb 23rd vs Montreal
Marincin is playing 3 out of every 10 games, so #200 is most likely coming in February
He is 7 goals away from 10 - This most likely won’t happen this season
He is 3 assists away from 25 - This could happen on Sat. Nov. 24th vs Philadelphia
He is 25 points away from 50 - This most likely won’t happen this season
With no points yet we’re not looking at any big numbers this year.

Patrick Marleau
This season: 20GP - 4G - 8A - 12Pts
Past three seasons: 246GP - 77G - 62A - 139Pts
Past three season average: (0.57PPG - 0.31GPG - 0.25APG)

Barring scratches injury he’ll pass Ray Bourque for #10 for all time games played on Fri. Dec 28th @ Columbus
Barring Scratches/injury he’ll pass Mark Recchi for #5 all time games played on Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
Marleau hasn’t missed any games, so he’s on pace for #1600 against the Bruins, then make some history.
He is 11 goals away from 550 - This could happen on Wed. March 27th @ Philadelphia
He’s not scoring as much as he was last year, so this goal got pushed back a few months.
600 assist milestone reached on Nov. 9th vs New Jersey
He is 59 points away from 1200 - This most likely won’t happen this season
He’s on pace to score 49 points this season, so if he wants to hit that number he needs to step it up.

Mitchell Marner
This season: 20GP - 6G - 20A - 26Pts
NHL Career: 159GP - 41G - 89A - 130Pts
Career average: (0.82PPG - 0.26GPG - 0.56APG)

He played game #175 on Fri. Nov. 9th vs New Jersey
Barring scratches/injury he’ll play game #200 on Sat. Jan. 5th vs Vancouver
Marner has played every game so far so this should still apply.
He is 3 goals away from 50 - This could happen on Thurs. Dec 6th vs Detroit
He is 28 goals away from 75 - This could happen Sat. April 6th @ Montreal
Hitting 75 goals this season is a stretch - he’s only on pace for 25 this year but it could happen.
100 assist milestone reached Oct. 27th vs Winnipeg
He is 41 assists away from 150 - This could happen Sat. Feb 23rd vs Montreal
Marner is an assist per game player, so almost doubling his career assist total this year is possible.
150 point milestone reached Nov. 10th vs Boston
He is 44 points away from 200 - This could happen on Sat. Feb. 9th @ Montreal
Originally Marner was on pace to hit 200 points at seasons end, but he’ll be closer to 250 by the end of the season.

He is 11 assists away from 75
He is 2 points away from 150

He is 2 points away from 200 - This could happen on Wed. Nov 21st @ Carolina
He is 52 points away from 250 - This could happen Sat. April 6th @ Montreal

This season: 4GP - 0.896sv% - 3.05GAA
NHL Career: 17GP - 0.893sv% - 3.02GAA - 1SO

He is 56 points away from 700 - This could happen on Wed. March 13th vs Chicago

He’s slowed down some this season, but once he starts scoring he could get to some good numbers.
