Today in NHL History- March 31


 

Here’s a look at NHL history made on this date.

March 31

1923- This is pretty cool. King Clancy of the Ottawa Senators played all six positions in one game. This did not come in an exhibition either. Clancy accomplished this feat in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. He played goalie when Sens goaltender Clint Benedict served a two minute penalty.

1990- Joe Sakic scored 100 points in one season for the first time. In doing so on this date 23 years ago, he became the youngest player to ever hit triple digits in points in one season. On top of this, Sakic also became the first player to score 100 points on a last place team.

1991- Brett Hull added his name to the record book 22 years ago today. He scored his 86th goal of the season while playing for the Saint Louis Blues. This was the third best goal scoring total in NHL history.

 

Not much has happened in the past on this day, but maybe tonight some more history will be made.
