POLL: What Player Will Score The Most Goals In 2021/2022?

POLL: What NHL Player Will Score The Most Goals In 2021/2022?

If you ever played hockey growing up as a kid, there’s simply no better feeling than scoring a goal. Professional hockey players get paid to do it..

In the NHL, there are plenty of snipers that do this on a regular basis and we’re looking for the player who will score the most goals in 2021/2022.

Maple Leafs fans rejoiced when Auston Matthews won the Maurice Richard Trophy after scoring 41 goals in a season shortened by Covid-19. I don’t think anyone will forget just how special last year was when Matthews was hitting the back of the net with regularity almost every game to take the award, but can he do it again this year?

We always have the deadly duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl in Edmonton, which depending on how often they play on the same line means either can take the scoring title in any given year. It will be interesting to see how ex-Leaf Zach Hyman plays into that formula as the Oilers continue to climb in the standings with continued success.

Mikko Rantanen, Brad Marchand, Kirill Kaprizov… There are quite a few players who had great seasons, who’s going to do it again this year?

20 Brock Boeser VAN 23 26 49

 

With 730 career goals, you can never count out Alex Ovechkin as he’s set to pass Marcel Dionne (731) and Brett Hull (741) this year. Ovie should be motivated as he’s still chasing Wayne Gretzky for the all-time NHL goal scoring leader with 894 goals, could Ovechkin have another monster season and top the rest of the best?

This season promises to be exciting as things get back to normal, seeing fans back in the stands across the league was sorely missed and I’m definitely planning to hit the Scotiabank Arena to watch the a Leafs game this year.
