Three NHL Players Have More Goals than the Ducks' Entire Team



Congrats to Jamie Benn. Not only do you lead the NHL in goals on Oct. 27, you also have more than the entire Anaheim Ducks Roster!



How long will this madness persist? The Ducks have been shut out five times in eight games, placing them in a pretty exclusive club:

According to Adam Gretz of Eye on Hockey:

They are the first team since the 1930-31 New York Americans to be shut out in five of their first eight games, and are one of just four teams in NHL history to fail to score more than six goals in their first eight games of a season.

The rest of the list:

1927-28 Pittsburgh Pirates: Four goals in first eight games

1928-29 Pittsburgh Pirates: Four goals in first eight games

1930-31 New York Americans: Six goals in first eight games

2015-16 Anaheim Ducks: Six goals in first eight games
