EHL 60 Goal Scorers

The Eastern Hockey League existed from 1933-34 to 1972-73. After 1972-73, the league split in two with its northern teams forming the North American Hockey League and the southern teams forming the Southern Hockey League. The EHL record for most goals in a season came in 1962-63 when Chuck Stuart of the Philadelphia Ramblers scored 78 goals in 66 games.

The amazing 1967-68 Clinton Comets had three different players scored 60 or more, including Borden Smith and his league leading 69 goals. Smith, along with Dick Roberge and Chuck Stuart, were the only three players in EHL history to score 60 or more in two seasons.

Norm Burns of the Washington Eagles was the first to top 60 with 67 in 1970-41. Luc Simard was the last with 68 in 1972-73. Simard, a Toronto Maple Leafs prospect that never cracked the NHL, scored 90 in junior with the Trois Rivieres Ducs of the QMJHL in 1969-70. He would top 60 twice in the NAHL with 67 as a member of the Cape Cod Cubs in 1973-74 and a combined 73 with the Cape Codders and Beauce Jaros in 1975-76.
