Random stat from Pats history

Does anyone remember Hal Christiansen? The lanky blueliner from Bluffton, Alberta played for the Pats from 1989 to 1992 playing in 125 games registering 14 points in his career. Of his 14 points none of them were goals giving him a Pats record.

Christiansen has played the most games without scoring a goal in Pats history (doesn't include netminders). 125 games played with zero goals. He also played 10 playoff games and also never registered a goal.

I just took another look at these stats and noticed that a more current player has played the second most games without a goal. Tyler Borstmayer has played 87 games without lighting the lamp.

Please note that there is no slight intended from this post. These players played for the Pats and that in itself is an achievement worth mentioning.
