Playoff Performers

There is a difference between the way hockey is played in the regular season versus the playoffs. Some players excel in the regular season, but wilt at playoff time while others bring up their game a notch -- or two -- when the season is on the line. This list will allow you to compare the average points per game of several Canucks.

There have been 568 Canucks that have played in the regular season. Of those players, the average stay in Vancouver is 118 games. About half of the Canucks played in the playoffs. Of those 278 players, the average number of career playoff games is 16. Since 1970-71, there have been 78 Canucks that have played in both 118 regular season games and 16 playoff games. These are the players that will appear on the list below, sorted by net points per 80 games.

Notes
* Stats for current players up to the end of the 2015-16 season.
(G) - indicates goaltenders (which explains why they don't get many points)

For both the regular season and playoffs, there are four columns. GP is the number of career games played. Pts is the number of career points. The Avg is the number of points divided by the number of games. The Per 80 column is the average multiplied by 80. This gives a sense of how many points a player would have recorded in a "season".

The NET is the difference between the playoffs and the regular season. A positive number means the player had a higher points-per-game average in the playoffs. A negative number means the player had a higher points-per-game average in the regular season.
