== == If player number 11 has scored a goal , after he got a pass from player number 34, who got a pass from player number 10, numbers 34 and 10 will a point for an "assist" on the goal. The player who scored the goal gets a point for scoring it. The players goals and assists are part of their "personal season records" not the team's record. The NHL has a trophy for the top goal scorer.
A hockey player getting 3 assists in one game is said to have gotten a 'Playmaker'. Some people call it that, some people don't. I, personally, have played and watched hockey my entire life (I could skate before I could walk) and I have always known 3 assists by the same player in one game is known as a "Playmaker".
