Canucks set NHL record on Saturday night

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

The Canucks are 14-7-1 under head coach Rick Tocchet, and have already set an impressive NHL record to start the 2023-24 campaign.

On Saturday night, despite losing to the lowly San Jose Sharks, they set a record that had never been achieved in 100+ years of the leagues existence.

the Canucks blue line is generating ridiculous offense, led by superstars Quinn Hughes and Filip Hronek. And now, the pair have set a record.

Canucks Blueliners set point streak record

Thanks to the pair of elite defensemen, Vancouver became the first team in NHL history to have two different blueliners each record a point streak of at least 11 games in the same season, according to NHL Public Relations.

Quinn Hughes is currently second in the league in points with 33 (8 goals, 25 assists), only behind Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov who has registered 35 points.

With a single assist in the loss to San Jose, Hughes reached the 11 game point streak mark, and has recorded an astonishing 17 points during that stretch. His 11 straight games with points is currently the longest active streak in the league.

Filip Hronek had his 11 game point streak snapped on November 16 against Calgary, where he failed to record a point. He is currently up to 22 points (2 goals, 20 assists) in 22 games for Vancouver this year.

Most of Hronek's points have come during 5-on-5 play as he does not frequent the first unit powerplay, which makes it even more impressive.
