Doan has been with the franchise since he was 19 during the 1995-96 season. He's a two-time All-Star and scored a career-high 31 goals during the 2008-09 season. His franchise record includes 389 goals and 542 assists.
Mark McClune of CBS 5 News in Phoenix tweeted he wasn't surprised to see a good showing from the veteran:
Dave Tippett said the #Coyotes leaders would need to step up tonight. Leave it to Shane Doan to score twice & set the franchise rec for pts— MarkMcClune (@MarkMcClune) February 13, 2016
Doan also put himself in rare company by registering another 20-goal season, per Sportsnet Stats:
Most 20-goal seasons (Active Players)— Sportsnet Stats (@SNstats) February 13, 2016
Jaromir Jagr 18
Jarome Iginla 16
Marian Hossa 14
Shane Doan 13 (20th tonight)
Vincent Lecavalier 13
The Coyotes hit the ice again Feb. 13 as Doan will look to extend his record. With 28 games left this season, he should shatter Hawerchuk's previous record, and when he does retire he will leave a mark that will be hard to duplicate.
