FUN! WITH! NUMBERS!

Featuring: Anze Kopitar. You know, in case you haven't been paying attention this week.

330: The number of consecutive games played by Kopitar between March 21, 2007, and March 26, 2011. That broke Marcel Dionne's franchise record.

85: In NHL history, the number of players with a higher assist-per-game ratio than Kopitar's 0.57.

81: Kopitar's point total in 2009-10, the highest by a King since Ziggy Palffy put up 85 points in 2002-03 and still the highest post-full-season-lockout point total by an LA player.

60: Anze's career point total in the postseason, third all-time among LA players behind Wayne and Luc. (What a coincidence, they're all on a first-name basis.)

55.6: His career Corsi For percentage.

16: Age at which Kopitar led the Slovenian Hockey League in scoring.

11: His number, and the pick with which he was drafted in 2005.

10: Consecutive games with a point to start the 2013-14 playoffs.

8: Franchise rank in regular-season goals (218) and games played (683).

7: Franchise rank in regular-season points (610).

6: Franchise rank in regular-season assists (392).

5: Franchise rank in era-adjusted regular-season  goals, assists, and points according to Hockey Reference.

4: Franchise rank in regular-season game-winning goals (31).

3: Career All-Star Game appearances; in franchise history, that trails only Dionne, Gretzky, Robitaille, Blake, and Taylor. And there have only been six total All-Star Games in Kopitar's career! (Kopitar also played in the Young Stars Game in his rookie season.)

2: Rings.

1: Number of Slovenian-born players other than Kopitar to play an NHL game.

0: Seasons with fewer than 0.8 points per game, fewer than 10 even-strength goals, a shooting percentage lower than 10%, or a faceoff percentage below 49%.
