1968–69 NHL season

The NHL 1968/69 season was the 52nd season of the National Hockey League. 12 teams each played 76 games. The Stanley Cup won by the Canadiens after a 4-0 win in the final series against the St. Louis Blues. Previously, it was no player managed more than 100 points in one season to achieve. Some were almost failed, but this year there were three players who overcame this hurdle. While it managed just the two old warhorses Gordie Howe (103) and Bobby Hull ( 107), Phil Esposito's 126 points were a real milestone. Gordie Howe managed during the season his NHL goal No. 700 Although almost a year younger than Howe, the former All Star Goalie Jacques Plante had hung the skates on the nail a few years ago. Meanwhile, 40 years old, he was yet again persuaded to return to the big stage. Together with the 38 -year-old Glenn Hall, he led the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup finals, winning his seventh Vezina Trophy.
