By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2010-11 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom.
Recorded his first-ever NHL hat trick, collecting three goals and an assist in a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Dec. 15, 2010 at Joe Louis Arena.
Longest game point streak of his career, collecting two goals and 12 assists from Oct. 16 to Nov. 13. The Red Wings were 9-2-0 during his streak.
Total points this season to become the oldest defenseman in NHL history to amass at least 60. His 60th point was a first-period goal in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on March 28 at Joe Louis Arena.
He had two four-point games this season – both coming in December wins – against St. Louis (Dec. 15) and at Colorado (Dec. 27).
The plus/minus rating that he finished with in the 2011 All-Star Game. Team Lidstrom defeated Team Staal, 11-10, in Raleigh, N.C.
Played in every single regular-season game for the second straight time. It was the sixth time in his 19 NHL seasons that he didn’t miss a game. He was also only one of two Wings (Darren Helm) to play in all 82 games this season.
