NHL Stats and Records
Have you ever wondered which NHL goaltenders have the most career wins? Today we will go over 10 NHL goalies who have accumulated the most career wins. This list is packed with goalies that helped their respective teams more than they could have ever imagined during their illustrious NHL career.
- Martin Brodeur - 691 wins
We start our list with none other than Marty Brodeur, the New Jersey Devils great who could arguably be the greatest NHL goaltender of all-time. Brodeur posted fantastic numbers in his long career. He played all but seven games in his career with the Devils, those other seven being with the St. Louis Blues. Brodeur also has four Vezina trophies under his belt, a feat that most goalies could only dream of. Brodeur was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018.
- Patrick Roy - 551 wins
Next up on the list is Patrick Roy, goaltender for the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche. Roy is a three-time Vezina Trophy winner and a four-time Stanley Cup Champion.

- Roberto Luongo - 489 wins
Roberto Luongo is the number three goaltender on this list with an impressive 489 wins. Luongo was drafted by the New York Islanders but played most of his career with the Florida Panthers and Vancouver Canucks. Luongo was a two-time all-star and a recipient of the William Jennings Trophy for the goaltender who allows the least amount of goals in a season with a minimum of 25 games played.
- Ed Belfour - 484 wins
Next on our list is Ed Belfour who amassed 484 wins the five NHL teams he played for (CHI, DAL, SJS, TOR, FLA).

Next, we have our first active NHL goaltender in Marc-Andre Fleury, who currently is the starting goalie of the Vegas Golden Knights. Fleury is a three-time Stanley Cup Champion, all of which came during his time with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Although “The Flower” does not have too much hardware as of now, but he has proven to be one of the NHL’s best goaltenders for years.
- Henrik Lundqvist - 459 wins
Henrik Lundqvist is next on our list, and he is also an active player in the NHL today. “The King” has been named to two all-star teams, and he also won the 2011-12 Vezina Trophy. Lundqvist has spent his entire career with the New York Rangers, and that is where he will most likely finish his career as well.

Next, we have Curtis Joseph, who has totaled 454 wins throughout his NHL career. Joseph was the recipient of the King Clancy award in the 1999-00 season, which is an award that goes to the NHL player that exudes leadership on and off the ice.
