April 18, 2020 marks 14 years since the New Jersey Devils’ single-season scoring record was set.
For once, Patrik Elias and John MacLean aren’t atop of a record-setting list for an offensive category. Don’t worry, Ilya Kovalchuk didn’t break the record, either.
Brian Gionta set the Devils’ record for most goals scored in a single season with 48 back in 2005-06.
Not only did the NHL return after a year-long lockout, but Gionta’s offensive heroics were a complete surprise and huge understory.
Kyle Palmieri is the first Devil since Brian Gionta (2003-2009) to produce five consecutive 20 goal seasons.
