Adding few more just for fun.

+/- leader: Bryan Allen
Biggest hit: Francois Beauchemin

EDIT: First goal of season: Peter Holland

WTF moment of the season: Bobby Ryan hits Sheldon Souray by accident
Funniest moment of the season: Kyle Palmieri scores a goal with his head
Most unfair moment of the season: Uncalled high sticking on Getzlaf in Detroit
Luckiest moment of the season: Luca Sbisa falls on the puck to make it unclear if it's over the goal line leading to no goal. Three main board threads are made do to this
