NHL Single Season Shutout Leaders

So if you think think NHL scoring has been down in recent years, take a look at all the shutouts starting from 1925 to 1930 seasons. George Hainsworth put up an incredible 22 shutouts in 44 games, giving him the most shutouts in an NHL single season. It’s pretty safe to say that this NHL record is safe.

Martin Brodeur (3 times), Dominique Hasek (twice) and Henrik Lundqvist are the only 3 goalies to have recorded 11 or more shutouts in one season, since 1975.
