Jonathan Huberdeau sets ridiculous NHL record

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

The Calgary Flames have been nothing short of disappointing this year. Not only do they miss out on the Connor Bedard sweepstakes, but they also missed the playoffs when they lost to Nashville on Monday night.

One of the biggest issues the Flames had in their 2022-23 campaign was finding consistency on their offense, with a 16th ranked offense in the league, a significant drop-off from their 2021-22 run which saw them top the stacked Pacific division.

Jonathan Huberdeau, who had just signed an insane $84M, 8 year (10.5M AAV) contract with the Flames, has not been producing up to his standards, and it is record-shattering.

Coming off a season with the Panthers which saw him put up a ridiculous 115 points (30 Goals, 85 Assists) in 80 games, to say he has been struggling with the Flames is a massive understatement.

His 2022-23 points total was only 55 (15 Goals, 40 Assists).

Huberdeau now holds sole possession of the NHL record for the largest point drop-off in league history, seeing a dramatic decrease of 60 points between '21-22 and '22-23.

Huberdeau's brand new contract doesn't kick in until the start of next year, and unless he somehow finds that same gear he had with the Panthers, Flames fans are in for a bumpy ride as his No Movement Clause will also set in.

He is set to become the eighth highest paid player in the league, and unless he can figure out how to put the puck in the back of the net, this could be trouble for the Calgary Flames.
