Top 9 Assists Leaders

The Red Wings have had their fair share of playmakers throughout their history. This list only includes assists while in a Red Wings jersey, so guys like Daniel Alfredsson, Mike Modano, and Brett Hull will not qualify for this Top 9. Should’ve spent more time in Detroit, guys. Maybe someone should create a list of top players to make cameo appearances in Detroit…

Here are Detroit’s Top 9 for career assists:

9. Ted Lindsay– 393 Assists

Detroit’s Top 9 Goal Scorers

For the initial Top 9, I am going to take a look at the top goal scorers. These players scored the most goals while wearing a Red Wings’ jersey. Guys like Luc Robitaille, Brett Hull, and Marcel Dionne have all put the biscuit in the basket frequently throughout their career, but not enough times while playing for Detroit to make the list. Goals only matter if they are scored in a Red Wings’ uniform anyway.

Statistics are provided by HockeyDB.com. Go there. They have endless data about all stats hockey.

Note: It is Top 9 because Gordie was, and still is, the man.

9. Nicklas Lidstrom– 264 goals
