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 forward Ptrick Eaves.


Recorded first career hat trick in a Red Wings’ 7-3 victory over the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Arena on Dec. 29, 2010. Eaves also assisted on a Kris Draper goal, giving him four points, which was a single game career-high.


Goals scored in the playoff series-clinching Game 4 win over Phoenix in the Western Conference semifinals.


Twice this season he had a season-high total number of hits: vs. the Chicago Blackhawks (April 8) and Dallas Stars (Dec. 19). Both games were at Joe Louis Arena.


Number of postseason goals – personal career-high – scored in the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. He had two goals in Game 4 vs. Phoenix and one Game 3 vs. San Jose.


Total number of hits this season, 10th best on the Red Wings’ roster, behind Justin Abdelkader (188), Johan Franzen (143), Brad Stuart (131), Darren Helm (128), Ruslan Salei (117), Niklas Kronwall (113), Danny Cleary (112), Todd Bertuzzi (110) and Jonathan Ericsson (107).
