There are only primary and secondary assists.
They are cleared as soon as the opponent touches the puck. The puck hitting the goalie or a body in front doesn't count as clearing that though which is how Dougie was able to get the assist for the Thornton goal.
You'll only ever see 2 assists maximum per goal. Sometimes you'll see one, sometimes you'll see "unassisted".
