On the Calgary Flames’ first goal on Thursday night against the Winnipeg Jets, another one of their young players hit a milestone. Defenseman Noah Hanifin earned his 100th career point with an assist on Johnny Gaudreau’s goal.
With a second assist (added by the league on a post-game correction), #Flames D Noah Hanifin now has 100 career NHL points.

Hanifin was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes (along with Elias Lindholm) at the 2018 NHL Draft in a swap that sent Dougie Hamilton, Micheal Ferland and Adam Fox to North Carolina. Now a staple on the Flames’ second pairing alongside Travis Hamonic, Hanifin’s remained a productive offensive player while bringing his play away from the puck along.
Hanifin’s 100th point was his 17th point of the season – three goals and 14 assists. His 100 points are broken between 21 goals and 79 assists.
