in europe, do they still only give one assist for each goal? If so, people need to remember that when comparing the stats of prospects in European leagues vs those in North America. It was also my understanding that the scorers in Europe are not as liberal with awarding even the 1 assist. For example, a Dman makes an innocent break-out pass, the forward skates through 3 opponents and beats the goalie out of his jock, the dman may not get an assist in Europe, as they view the goal as purely the work of the forward. I have never seen a European game, but that is what I heard often happenned.
