The NHL has rapidly grown in importance to me. Since I "discovered" the sport back in October 2016, it has been a part of every day of my life since then...and it's becoming a bigger and bigger part all the time. The NHL -and hockey in general, I'll watch any form of hockey I can find- is now omnipresent in my life. I would say it's a safe bet to say that the "NHL era" of my collection is now in full swing. I've speculated on if that would happen in the past, and for sure, it has. In fact, to be honest, the NHL is currently my #1 sport. It's surpassed the NBA...in such a short time it's come out of nowhere and become my #1. (but I will still collect the NBA to a high degree)
Trading Card Database didn't exist yet, which is where I'm gong to be pulling these screencaps from. Also, the leaderboards for my other two sports are pretty much set in stone...since I began tracking my collection on the Database there has only been one significant change to the top 10 people in either sport. The NHL, being new and wide open, may not be that way, and I am curious to track that as time goes on.
I thought I would take a look at my statistical leaders as reckoned by the Database in all the major statistical categories they provide. All these stats are accurate to the conclusion of the season. I've gotten more cards since then, but I specifically didn't add them on there so I could do this post. I've been planning it out since the Finals were going on but didn't get a chance to actually write it for quite a while. My plan is to track my collection in this format at the conclusion of each season, to see how it changes over the years.
I keep my statistics a little differently than the Database does. For example, if it's a League Leaders card, I count it as a League Leaders card, while the Database counts it towards each person's and team's total. Team cards, where applicable, are tagged to the person, where I track them as team cards. So there are some differences in the numbers shown and what I consider the "actual" numbers...but this is the best I can do considering to get to my numbers I'd need to scan everything and enter it into my Excel charts...something I can't do any time soon, there' s too much.

Those are all the stats the Database gives you. at least for your own collection, but here are two leaders I've added on my own.
Lowest SN: I pulled this card! This will not be my lowest numbered card for very long- I have a printing plate in my COMC box waiting to be shipped.
Thanks for reading, and thanks to everyone who has sent me NHL cards...more than half my collection has arrived as gifts or trades! I was at 9928 NHL cards at the conclusion of the season.
