23. Adam Oates

Adam Oates was only with the Boston Bruins for five years, but while playing for the B’s, he was a bona fide scoring machine and would finish third in scoring twice.  Oates is third all-time in Points per Game for the Bruins and still holds the franchise record for Assists and Points for a season.  It is actually quire amazing how many teams had Oates throughout his Hall of Fame career.

Adam Oates

When you look at the career numbers of Adam Oates, you wonder why it took so long for him to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame. With three Assists titles, and over 1,400 career points, Oates career numbers are easily Hall of Fame worthy. However Oates never played for a championship team, nor was he really associated with any one team as the longest he ever played for one franchise was a near six season stint with the Washington Capitals. Still, you can’t deny a Hall of Fame slot for a man with over 1,000 career assists, as there were few purer playmakers in the game of Hockey.
