Reinhart cracks century mark
No Ice player has been able to crack the century mark for single-season points since Jarret Stoll in 2000-01.
However, Sam Reinhart did it on Friday against the Hitmen, notching an assist on Philp's first goal to give him 100 points on the season. He ended the night with two goal and two assist for four points.
"Obviously it was a goal of mine," said Reinhart, after the first Calgary game on Friday. "I'm pretty happy that the way the year has gone. I couldn't have done it without a lot of my teammates and linemates, obviously [Jaedon] Descheneau is a big part of that…"
During the rematch in Calgary—the final game of the season—Reinhart also collected two assists, giving him a total of 36 goals and 69 assists for 105 points.
That's one shy of Stoll's franchise record of 106 points 13 years ago.
Reinhart also broke the single-season franchise record for assists—formerly 66, which was also held by Stoll.
Though Reinhart missed 12 games due to playing for Team Canada in the World Junior Championship, he tallied his 105 points in only 60 games, finishing fifth overall in league scoring.
The only other player to come close to his number of points despite missing games is Team Canada teammate Nic Petan, who tallied 111 in 62 games with the Portland Winterhawks. Petan finished the season second overall in league scoring.
Descheneau, finished the season two points shy of the century mark, with 98. He collected 44 goals and 54 assists in 70 games.
