Delay of game penalties should do the trick. 3 per game.

Say a goal every 5 seconds.

3600 sec a game

720 goals a game

59,040 goal season

82-0-0, 82 SOs in the regular season.

16-0-0, 16 SOs in the postseason.

That season can literally never be topped.

Score 5 goals in the first period in your first game.
After 20 minutes, the last CBA expires, and all the players are sent home.
Negotiations fail, and the season is cancelled.
Then you can say you scored infinity times as many goals as everyone else in the league combined.

A player/coach netminder with a wicked wrister and pass. He wins the Jack Adams as his team tops the NHL, he wins the Vezina and all out skater awards as he replicates the 'Hextall' three times a game. He also wins the Masterton thanks to his miraculous return from a previous-season ending injury.

He's also elected president, wins the FIFA World Cup and has a beer with me.

Good year all in. You did say 'possible'

As well, that player must break Joe Malone's record for goals in a game (7), break Darryl Sittler's points in a game record (10), break Gretzky's record for 7 assists in one game, and finish the year with a higher +/- than Bobby Orr did in 1970-71 (+124). In the postseason, said player would have to break Mario Lemieux's record for most points in a playoff game (8), break Reggie Leach's record for most goals in one playoff (19), break Wayne Gretzky's record for most points in one postseason (47), and score more game-winning goals than Brad Richards did in 2004 (7).

Said player would also need to dress as a defenseman for one playoff game and score 8 points, breaking Paul Coffey's record for points in one playoff game. Optionally, said player may also dress as a goaltender for one playoff game and score two goals while also pitching a shutout.

For doing so, the player will receive a PlayStation trophy or an XBOX Live achievement.

Hide in your house for a few days after being traded to Columbus.
Make players and management beg for you to come play.
Sit in the pressbox for half a season.
Get traded away from Columbus.
Win Stanley Cup.

Seems like it was a pretty great season to be Jeff Carter.
