David Goodwin Breaks Men’s Hockey’s Career Points Record

A young hockey program inevitably will break and re-break records regularly, and one of Penn State’s most significant ones was broken in Pegula on Friday night.

Junior forward David Goodwin had an assist to break Casey Bailey’s 80 record points over his career. Bailey had 27 points in his debut season then took a step back when his team joined the Big Ten, adding 13 to his total. Last year, he shattered the single-season record with 40 points and left early to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs (though he was traded to the Ottawa Senators organization recently). Goodwin was the team’s second-highest scorer in his first and second season behind Eric Scheid then Bailey, and he is the team’s No. 1 option this season.

Goodwin had 80 points entering the Ohio State series, and his assist puts him at 81. He’s arguably the face of the program right now and will be on the shortlist to wear a letter on his chest next season, if he returns for his senior year under Coach Guy Gadowsky.

Penn State hockey has flirted with an at-large NCAA Tournament bid all season, and that’s due to an experienced coach and the best roster the school has ever had. For a team that breaks its own records every season, let’s hope this new one is just the start of something special.
