Ben Massey's NHLer of the Decade!

It will come as no surprise to educated observers that the winner of my prestigious NHLer of the Decade award is none other than Edmonton, New York, and Vancouver alum Mark Messier. Starting in the 2000-01 season (where he turned forty), Messier played in 277 NHL games, recording 67 goals and 106 assists for 173 points while finishing a sterling -25.

In his final season with the Rangers, the 43-year-old Messier was second in team scoring with 43 points and tied for first in even-strength goals with 17. He was also +3 on a non-playoff team.

This marks Messier's third consecutive victory. Judges are said to be working on a way to make him Player of the Decade again in 2020 even though he will not, strictly speaking, have played.
