Exceptional Performances During the 2023-24 NHL Season

The NHL season is a long one. Each team plays 82 regular season games. For the 16 teams that make the playoffs, they get a chance to play for a Stanley Cup. Theoretically, 2 teams could end up playing another 28 games. That's like extending the season another 33%, except it feels even longer than that because every game is hotly-contested and against a high quality team. When the playoffs start, everything essentially resets to zero. Each team has zero wins, each player has zero points. Well, before the playoffs advance too far, let's step back a bit and see how much you remember from the regular season? Time to drop the puck!

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
