Although my favourite player is and always will be Joe Sakic, it was actually Gordie Howe who is the oldest to ever score 100 points in the NHL. He did it in 1969 at the age of 41, scoring 103 points as a member of the Detroit Red Wings.

1 to 0
NHL hockey incorporates two types of "points." First, in scoring, goals plus assists equal "points." Thus, a player who scores two goals and has three assists will leave the game with five "points." Secondly, the NHL determines its regular season division champions by an aggregate of "points": 2 points for a win, 1 point for a loss in overtime or a shootout, and 0 points for a loss in regulation. The team with the post "points" at season's end wins the division crown.
Outside of some fantasy-league scoring systems and the NHL's recently-introduced "shoot-out" format, a goal has always been worth exactly one goal (and one point in the goal scorer's point total).
