Ok, I have to say something here. Will people please STOP ever mentioning the ludicrous term 'primary/secondary assist'!!?!?!
When was the last time you've ever heard anyone on TSN or Hockey Night in Canada EVER mention that term? NEVER.
Example: Matt Duchene lugs the puck up the ice, does 14 spin-o-ramas to get away from opponents, then flips the puck over the last defender and regains it then makes a pass that inadvertently goes off of Hejduk's stick blade which ends up on Parenteau's stick and he shoots and scores.
According to this, Hejduk got the
assist by having the puck go off his stick while Duchene only got a secondary assist.
Assists are assists, using the terms primary or secondary is completely ridiculous. If it did have ANY worth at all when considering playmaking ability or what have you, it would be kept track of, I can guarantee you that.
