Hockey History As Told By Cardboard - Rick Tocchet

Rick Tocchet enjoyed the highest scoring game of his NHL career on January 25, 1989 when he scored four goals with two assists against the Winnipeg Jets. 

A punishing hitter with an accurate wrist shot, he passed the 400th game, 300th point and 200th assist plateaus all in the 1989-90 season. He also scored a goal with an assist in the 1990 All Star Game, on his way to the best offensive season of his career to that point.  He led the flyers in points, goals, assists, points per game and power-play goals. 

During that season, the three-time 30-goal scorer said, "I wanted to be known as one of the best right wings. Right now I consider myself in the top three or four."
