Jim Play­fair made his NHL de­but for the Edmonton Oil­ers against the then sad-sack New Jer­sey Dev­ils. Wayne Gretzky racked up eight points, in­clud­ing an as­sist on a Jari Kurri goal also as­sisted by Play­fair, who also scored a goal. The score was 13-4, and af­ter the game, No. 99 re­ferred to the Dev­ils as a ‘Mickey Mouse’ team. Play­fair could only dream ev­ery game would be so easy.
