Top active scorers

  • among players with 1,000+ points
  • number indicates overall ranking

10. Joe Sakic, Que-Col, 1,542
12. Jaromir Jagr, Pit-Was-NYR, 1,492
26. Pierre Turgeon, Buf-NYI-Mon-StL-Dal-Col, 1,327
28. Mark Recchi, Pit-Phi-Mon-Phi-Pit-Car-Pit, 1,309
30. Brendan Shanahan, NJ-StL-Har-Det-NYR, 1,278
39. Mats Sundin, Que-Tor, 1,209
42. Mike Modano, Min-Dal, 1,203
45. Jeremy Roenick, Chi-Pho-Phi-LA-Pho, 1,157
52. Teemu Selanne, Win-Ana-SJ-Col-Ana, 1,100
54. Sergei Fedorov, Det-Ana-Clm, 1,093
62. Rod Brind'Amour, StL-Phi-Car, 1,035
64. Brian Leetch, NYR-Tor-Bos, 1,028

That's a whole lotta Hall of Famers.

Sakic's 37 points back of Ray Bourque, and 181 back of Mario Lemieux in seventh spot. Jagr, meanwhile, is just 34 and could, potentially, close the 358-point gap between he and Gordie Howe with about four 75-point seasons after this year.

Active players approaching the 1,000-point mark include Chris Chelios (933), Doug Weight (918), Keith Tkachuk (901), Tony Amonte (891), Peter Bondra (885), Gary Roberts (873), Eric Lindros (863), Nicklas Lidstrom (846), Peter Forsberg (844), Trevor Linden (843), Paul Kariya (843), Scott Mellanby (827), John Leclair (819), Alexei Kovalev (780), Alexei Yashin (769) and Owen Nolan (765).

There aren't many young bucks in that group coming out of the dead-puck era.

Forsberg and Linden virtually tied! I would have bet a million dollars and lost that bet.

"Forsberg and Linden virtually tied! I would have bet a million dollars and lost that bet."

The question now is who scores more in the next few years? A heathy Linden or a broken Forsberg?

noticing right off something that leads to another question - who's the leading active scorer who has played for just one team?

Sakic. Quebec and Colorado are the same team.

Brian Leetch is active????

The sad thing is that, this year, Turgeon and Roenick have only a few more points than Leetch, who's sitting at home imitating Roger Clemens.

The active leading scorer to have played for only one team, in ONE city, is .... (drumroll please) ... Nicklas Lidstrom! 846 points with Detroit.

Wrong..Doogie's right, it's Sakic.

Does 1000 points ensure a Hall of Fame career? For example Recchi and Turgeon have over 1300 points and are still going but their careers have been fairly quiet. They have never dominated a period of time Are they really Hall of Famers?

It usually does... but maybe it shouldn't anymore.

Dale Hunter got 1,020, and he isn't in the Hall of Fame -- thank goodness.
