Prior To Steven Stamkos, Who Was The Last Player To Score 60 Goals?

1,630

Steven Stamkos’ ability to put the puck in the net could be second to none in today’s NHL.

Stamkos once again is back among the NHL’s leader in goals this season, as he and the Tampa Bay Lightning come to Boston on Thursday night for a big matchup with the Bruins. Stamkos enters the tilt with 36 goals, good for third in the league.

All in all, it’s a pretty remarkable comeback after Stamkos suffered a pretty nasty knee injury against the Bruins last season. Before too long, he could be back to being a guy who scores 50, maybe 60 goals in a season.

Stamkos is the NHL’s most recent 60-goal scorer. Can you name the player who last scored 60 goals before him?
