James van Riemsdyk's first period assist is his 300th NHL point and his 100th assist as a Maple Leaf. #TMLtalk— Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) December 23, 2016
With this assist on a goal that was helped along by noted offensive threat Roman Polak and ultimately tipped by Nazem Kadri, James van Riemsdyk hit two milestones at once. His 300th NHL point and his 100th assist as a member of the Leafs is just a reminder to us all how good this man is.
Congratulations to James, and, please feel free to make those numbers less round by getting a few more points tonight, that one was fun.
And he did!
Here’s his goal a few minutes later:
