I had a look at the average ages of the NHL's top 5 goal scorers and assist leaders since the last lockout. The average age of the goal scorers was 25.3 yrs but for the assist leaders it was 27.5 yrs. This seems to suggest that goal scorers peak earlier than play makers.
I also suspect that the goal scorers see a steeper decline in production with age than the play makers do. If anyone has any stats charting goals vs assists vs age I think they would be neat to see.
