Tuesday marks the 100th anniversary of the first games in National Hockey League history. On Dec. 19, 1917, the Montreal Wanderers defeated the Toronto Arenas 10-9 at Westmount Arena in Montreal and the Montreal Canadiens skated to a 7-4 victory over the Ottawa Senators at Dey’s Arena in Ottawa.


Over the past century, 40 different franchises have competed in the National Hockey League, combining for 358,737 total goals (including 1,833 shootout-deciding goals) across 58,997 total games (54,705 regular-season, 4,292 playoffs) played at 139 different venues. Notables from 100 years of the NHL.

The highest-scoring day in NHL history was Jan. 23, 1993, when 103 goals were scored across 12 games. The highest-scoring contest that day was between the Oilers and original Jets, an 8-5 victory for Winnipeg.

Four games in League history have featured at least 20 goals, including two 21-goal games – the Canadiens defeated the Toronto St. Patricks 14-7 on Jan. 10, 1920 in Montreal and the Oilers defeated the Blackhawks 12-9 on Dec. 11, 1985 in Chicago.
