Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which NHL player has played in the most regular season wins during his career?

Answer: Scott Stevens

Player performance is never evaluated on the number of team wins, but the statistics are fascinating. Stevens has been on the winning end of more regular-season games than anyone else in league history. Larry Robinson has the best winning percentage, a 59 percent rate. The only forward in the top five in the team-wins category is Mark Messier.

Regular-Season Wins By Selected Players

Player Teams GP Team Wins
Scott Stevens Wsh, Stl, NJ 1597 859
Mark Messier Edm, NYR, Van 1680 840
Ray Bourque Bos, Col 1612 832
Larry Robinson Mtl, LA 1384 815
Larry Murphy Pit, Tor, Det 1615 814
2. Nashville's Jordin Tootoo is the first NHL player of which ethnic background?

Answer: Canadian Inuit

NHL players have come from every nook and cranny across Canada, but Tootoo is the first player of Inuit descent drafted into the NHL. It's a big surprise that the five-foot-eight winger even made it. And not because he's almost a half-foot shorter than the average NHL player. Tootoo didn't play organized hockey until he was 14 years old.

In his hometown of Rankin Inlet on the northern shore of Hudson Bay, there weren't enough boys to ice more than one team at any age level. "I made history, I guess," said Tootoo after being selected 98th overall by the Nashville Predators in 2001.
3. Which 1960s players first made waving to the crowd at centre ice popular after receiving a star of the game?

Answer: Johnny Bower

Hockey's long-standing tradition of the three star selection and the skate to centre ice by those start after the game took on an added twist when Johnny Bower began waving to fans each time he received a game star during the 1960's. Bower admitted the gesture was originally intended for his wife's mother, but later for all the grandmother's watching him play. On one occasion, after receiving a star which he felt undeserving of, Bower did not perform his usual wave.

As a result, the Toronto netminder was flooded with letters from furious grannies, scolding him for not waving to them at centre ice.
4. When Dany Heatley scored four goals at the 2003 All-Star Game he unseated Gretzky as the youngest All-Star to score a hat trick. How much younger was Heatley than Gretzky?

Answer: One day

Heatley was 22 years, 12 days old when he potted his four All-Star goals in 2003, just one day younger than Gretzky, who had held the distinction of being the youngest All-Star to score a hat trick since 1983's All-Star contest. The 2002-02 rookie of the year recorded his first goal after stick-handling around Rob Blake and firing a low shot past Patrick Roy. "After I got the first one, I was pretty happy," Heatley said. "After that they kept going in. I kept cruising around and shooting the puck." On Heatley's second goal, he batted the puck out of midair to score, which drew praise from the victim. "I'd say the guy has a lot of talent to do that," said Roy.

Heatley also scored in the first-ever All-Star shootout, but his goal, his fifth of the game, didn't count towards his totals in official scoring.

Heatley was the 13th All-Star to score a hat trick and just one of five with a four goal game. The Great One also scored four goals in 1983.
5. In February 2003, a group of 40 amateur players form Alberta set a new record for the world's longest hockey game. How long did they play?

Answer: 80 hours

As soon as this 80-hour record was set on February 16, 2003, it became a target for other crazies to break, including the rink rats from Moosomin, Saskatchewan, the players who set the original mark at 62 hours 15 minutes. In the Alberta marathon, 40 friends played on an outdoor rink in hour-long shifts, taking breaks in a converted garage-turned dressing room.

A hot tub provided relief from muscle cramps over the four-day stretch. They played in full equipment under NHL rules with very little physical contact.

The final score was 650-628 for the Blue team (not the defensive-style game of coach Jacques Lemaire) but the event did raise CDN$40,000 for cancer research.
6. Who finally overtook Mike Gartner as the NHL's fastest skater?

Answer: Jason Chimera of the Edmonton Oilers

At the 2003 Oilers skills competition, rookie left-winger Jason Chimera turned a lap in 13.332 seconds to best right-winger Mike Gartner's record of 13.386 from the 1986 All-Star game.
7. When Canadian-born Hayley Wickenheiser joined the Kirkkonummi Lightning of the Finnish league in 2002-03, she became the second woman to play in a men's pro league. How many games did she play before she scored her first goal?

Answer: Six games

Hayley Wickenheiser, star of Canada's national team and sometimes known as the female Wayne Gretzky, scored her first goal in her sixth game with Kirkkonummi, a third-division semi-pro team from Finland. Despite her goal and an assist during the February 1, 2003 game, the Lightning lost 5-4, Wickenheiser is the first woman to score a goal in a men's pro hockey league.
8. How many games did it take before Cliff Ronning scored his first empty-net goal?

Answer: Over 1,000 games

Whatever game plan coaches use to protect a lead late in the game, it doesn't appear Ronning plays any part in it. Otherwise he should have had a few empty-netters before his 17th season. It came in Ronning's 1,080th game as Minnesota beat Montreal 6-3 on February 27, 2003. Because it felt so good, Ronning scored another one seven games later against Nashville. Coincidently, Ronning was promoted to full captain in March, a first in the right-winger's career.
9. Who is Tim Hurlbut?

Answer: A Calgary Streaker

Few who saw the news footage will forget the story of Tim Hurlbut, the Calgary streaker who scaled the glass at the Saddledome during a Boston game on October 17, 2002, falls on the ice and was knocked out cold for six minutes while wearing only a pair of red socks. Hurlbut, a name befitting the man's actions, was intoxicated. An Alberta judge ordered Hurlbut to pay CDN$2,500 to two charities, do community service and chastised him for the "pathetic spectacle of yourself splayed naked on the ice for six minutes until you were covered." A few weeks later, a Calgary nightclub called Cowboys Dance Hall, planned a fund raiser for Hurlbut, the man "who brought so much joy into our lives with a simple pair of red socks."
10. Who are the first twins to play in the NHL?

Answer: Ron and Rich Sutter

The Sutters from Viking, Alberta, are hockey's most productive family, bearing six siblings of NHL caliber in one generation. Twins Rod and Rich were rookies in 1982-83. They snuck in just ahead of Patrik and Peter Sundstrom by a year. Patrik began in 1982-83 and Peter in 1983-84. The Sutter twins were also the first twins to play on the same team, Philadelphia 1983-84.
