As the saying goes, an assist is as good as a goal, and Getzlaf is the KING of the assists. Since making his NHL debut in 2005, Getzlaf has led the Ducks in assists seven times, including a tallying a franchise-record 66 during the 2008-09 season. He holds the Ducks record for most assists in franchise history (628) and has only gotten better with age, leading the NHL in assists per game this season (0.89).

Model of Consistency
Even with missing 19 games early this season after taking a puck to the face that required surgery, Getzlaf has shown his ability to play through anything that comes his way. The Canadian stands in third place on the Ducks leaderboard of most games played (917), just 49 behind Teemu Selanne's 966.

Some argue assists are as good as goals, in which case Getzlaf still has himself covered. Over those 917 games, the former 19th overall pick has found the back of the net 247 times, good for fourth place on the Ducks franchise list. Getzlaf fueled that number with a career-high 31 during the 2013-14 season.

Mr. Do it All
For those who just can't decide which is more important, goals or assists, just look at the overall points. Getzlaf has tallied 875 of them during his tenure in Anaheim, including 17 during the Ducks 2007 Stanley Cup playoff run, ranking second all-time for the illustrious franchise.
