367 - Number of games (regular season and playoffs) played by Braden Holtby since the start of the 2013-14 season, the most by any goalie over that span. That adds up to well over 21,000 minutes (also tops in the League), with an overall record of 224-99-32.

Not only has he played a lot of hockey games over the last five seasons, but he’s also won a lot of hockey games; his 224 wins have him well ensconced in the top spot in that department, with the next player sitting more than 30 wins behind (Nashville’s Pekka Rinne, who has racked up 189 wins).
