Karlsson shows the way

Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

Twenty players have played more than the equivalent of four full games on the power play this season.

 

The leaders are:

 

Erik Karlsson – 318:37

Keith Yandle – 304:16

Alex Ovechkin – 273:18

John Tavares – 271:08

Oliver Ekman-Larsson – 266:06

Ryan Suter – 261:49

Phil Kessel – 260:26

Mark Streit – 255:54

Jason Spezza – 253:21

Steve Stamkos – 253:19

Dustin Byfuglien – 252:29

Drew Doughty – 250:50

James van Riemsdyk – 248:44

Tyler Bozak – 248:09

Jamie Benn – 246:56

Jonathan Toews – 244:20

P.K. Subban – 244:01

Jason Pominville – 242:37

Valtteri Filppula – 242:29

Kris Letang – 242:26

 

Some thoughts: Nine of the leaders are defensemen (I’m counting Byfuglien as a blueliner because most poolies use him there)… Three Maple Leafs are in the top 14…Suter has the least amount of points with 10 while Doughty has 12.
