Best Answer

a point is a goal or an assist. You get an assist if you pass the puck to the goal scorer (1st assist) or pass to the person who passes to the goal scorer (2nd assist). All goals and assists count as one point. For the NHL, most goals is the tie breaker for the Art Ross trophy given to the player with the most points.
