88-89 OPC Tribute: Staal, Callahan, and Howe

  The 2nd overall pick the 2003 draft, Eric Staal had his best season in 2005-06 scoring 100pts, leading the league in play-off scoring and winning a Stanley Cup.

  The captain of the New York Rangers, Ryan Callahan, was 2nd on the team goals, 23, and hits, 224.  Callahan would have led the team in both categories if he hadn't missed 22 games with injuries.  His best game of the season came against the Philadelphia Flyers when he scored 4 goals and added an assist in a 7-0 win on March 6th, 2011.

 Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, played his final NHL game at the age of 51.  Then at the age of 69, he laced up the skates to play for the Detroit Vipers of the IHL.  While Howe is 2nd overall in career goals scored in the NHL, he has the most career goals, 1071, when combining the regular season and playoffs for the NHL and WHA combined.
