In his eight season in the NHL, Clayton Keller constantly puts his stamp on games whenever he steps foot onto the ice for the Arizona Coyotes.

Against the Minnesota Wild last night, Keller made his mark in the history books once again.

With two goals and assists, him and center Nick Bjugstad, scoring a hat trick, led Arizona to a 6-0 blowout victory over the Wild on Saturday night.

His second tally of the night marked his 150th goal of his career, just 0:38 into the third period.

In addition, that was Keller’s third point in the game and 380th in the NHL. He surpassed Jeremy Roenick and Laurie Boschman (379) for ninth most points all-time in Coyotes history.

With eighth place within reach, Keller will now set his sights on former captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s 388 points. ‘Yotes legend Shane Doan is the current leader with 972, though he played 21 years with the franchise.

Proving his case for why he is also All-Star for the fourth time in his career, Keller has 17 goals and 21 assists in 41 games. He is the team leader in points this year, collecting 38.

The future is bright in the valley for Keller, and these two accomplishments most certainly not be the last of his career while dawning the Kachina jersey.
