Bernie Nicholls Bio

Four players in NHL history have scored at least 70 goals and finished with at least 150 points. Nicholls, who did it with the Los Angeles Kings in 1988-89, is one of the four, along with Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Phil Esposito.

The Kings selected Nicholls in the fourth round (No. 73) in the 1980 NHL Draft after he scored 36 goals in his first full season with Kingston of the Ontario Hockey Association. He scored 152 points (63 goals, 89 assists) the following season and started 1981-82 by scoring 41 goals in 55 games with New Haven of the American Hockey League before being called up by the Kings. Nicholls scored 14 goals (including hat tricks in three consecutive home games) and finished with 32 points in 22 games, then scored the series-winning goal during the Kings' first-round upset of the Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
