Oates ranks sixth all-time in assists, leading the NHL during the 1992-93 (97), 2000-01 (69, tie), and 2001-02 (64) seasons. He also saw action in 163 career playoff games, including two Stanley Cup Final appearances in 1998 and 2003, recording 42 goals and 114 assists for 156 points and 66 penalty minutes.
