Maurice "Rocket" Richard recorded the first eight-point game in league history.
Mario Lemieux recorded three eight-point games.
Wayne Gretzky had two eight-point games.

This is a list of players who have scored eight or more points in a National Hockey League game. Scoring eight or more points in a single game is considered a great feat, which has happened only 15 times, by 12 different players. Only one player, Darryl Sittler, scored more than eight points in a game, setting the NHL record with 10 while playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1976. Paul Coffey and Tom Bladon are the only defencemen to have scored eight points. The feat of scoring eight points in a game has been mostly achieved in the 1980s, with 10 out of the 15 instances happening in that decade. Mario Lemieux has the most games with at least eight points, scoring eight points in three separate games. Wayne Gretzky is the only other player to attain the feat more than once. The most recent player to do so was Mario Lemieux of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who scored eight points in a playoff game against the Philadelphia Flyers on 25 April 1989. No player currently active has ever scored eight points in one game.
