== == If player number 11 has scored a goal , after he got a pass from player number 34, who got a pass from player number 10, numbers 34 and 10 will a point for an "assist" on the goal. The player who scored the goal gets a point for scoring it. The players goals and assists are part of their "personal season records" not the team's record. The NHL has a trophy for the top goal scorer.
