This is a list of National Hockey League (NHL) statistical leaders through the end of the 2008–09 NHL season.

Most of these records are dominated by Canadian players, due to the traditional popularity of ice hockey in Canada. In the past, most NHL players were from Canada, and even today roughly half of all NHL players are born in Canada (52.3% in the 2008–09 season). To distinguish players of different nations, a flag is placed beside players born outside of Canada based on their place of birth; the Canadian flag (Canada) will not be shown next to Canadian-born players in order to avoid visual clutter.

Regular season powerplay goals

When a team is given a penalty for committing an infraction (such as tripping another player), the offending player must sit in the penalty box, and his team must play with one fewer player on the ice. The penalized team is said to be "short-handed", while the other team has a "powerplay". If a player scores while his team is on the powerplay, this is recorded as a powerplay goal.

Regular season short-handed goals

When a team is given a penalty for committing an infraction (such as tripping another player), the offending player must sit in the penalty box, and his team must play with one fewer player on the ice. The penalized team is said to be "short-handed", while the other team has a "powerplay". If a player scores while his team is short handed, this is recorded as a short-handed goal.

Regular season game-winning goals
Regular season overtime goals

If a game is tied after regulation time (which lasts three 20-minutes periods), there will be a period of "overtime" to decide the winner. The player who scores during this extra time is given the overtime goal. All overtime in the NHL is sudden death—meaning the first team to score is the winner—so the player who scores in overtime also has the game-winning goal.
