List of NHL goaltenders with 300 wins

Winning 300 regular season games in the National Hockey League (NHL) is a rare and celebrated milestone for a goaltender.[1] Thirty-six goaltenders have reached this mark in NHL history; the first was Turk Broda of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who reached the milestone on December 20, 1950.[2] The most recent was Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings, who won his 300th game during the 2018–19 NHL season. Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens was the fastest goaltender to reach the 300-win mark, achieving the milestone in his 528th game played.[3]

Prominent goaltendersEdit

Martin Brodeur is the all-time leader with 691 career regular season victories. He set the NHL record for wins on March 17, 2009, when he broke Patrick Roy's record of 551 wins.[4] In reaching the 691 wins, Brodeur had eight seasons with at least 40 wins. No other goaltender has had more than three seasons with at least 40 wins.[5] Brodeur credits his durability, noting he has been fortunate to avoid suffering any serious injuries during his career, while having the ability to play in excess of 70 games per season for 10 consecutive years.[6]

Only six goaltenders on this list (Turk Broda, Mike Richter, Henrik Lundqvist, Pekka Rinne, Carey Price and Jonathan Quick) have played all their games with one team. Brodeur played his first 1,259 games for the New Jersey Devils and only his final seven games with the St. Louis Blues.

Six goaltenders on this list remain active in the 2019–20 NHL season: Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Miller, Marc-Andre Fleury, Pekka Rinne, Carey Price and Jonathan Quick.[7]

Fourteen of the goaltenders on this list have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame, the most recent being 2018 inductee Martin Brodeur.[8]

The 36 goaltenders who have 300 NHL wins consist of 22 Canadians, five Americans (Tom Barrasso, John Vanbiesbrouck, Mike Richter, Ryan Miller, Jonathan Quick), three Finns (Miikka Kiprusoff, Kari Lehtonen, Pekka Rinne), two Czechs (Dominik Hasek, Tomas Vokoun), two Russians (Nikolai Khabibulin, Evgeni Nabokov), one German[9] (Olaf Kolzig), and one Swede (Henrik Lundqvist).

According to Brent Sutter, who coached Brodeur and Kiprusoff, and played with Ed Belfour and Billy Smith, goaltenders who reach 300 wins are all highly competitive athletes: "They were guys that every game, you knew you could count on them."[1]
