Ryan-Nugent Hopkins Completes His First 100-Point Season Ever

Published April 6, 2023 at 8:47

Last night, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins achieved a career milestone by scoring his 100th point for the first time in his 12-year NHL career with an empty-net assist against the Anaheim Ducks. This achievement has earned him a place in history as only the sixth player to reach this milestone in their 12th season or later. The Edmonton Oilers took to Twitter to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Joining the likes of Gordie Howe (23rd season, 1968-69), Bobby Hull (12th season, 1968-69), Johnny Bucyk (16th season, 1970-71), Jean Ratelle (12th season, 1971-72), and Steven Stamkos (14th season, 2021-22), Nugent-Hopkins' achievement is remarkable.

The 29-year-old center has been a key player for the Oilers this season, helping them secure a playoff spot in their highly competitive division. Nugent-Hopkins' consistent performance and offensive skills have endeared him to fans in Edmonton, and his historic achievement further cements his place as one of the greatest players in the franchise's history.
