Power Play Report

Kessel states This is 40

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

Phil Kessel has been a stud on the power play this season and became the first player since 2013-14 to hit the 40 point mark in power play points. The last player to do so was Nicklas Backstrom who had 44 points that season.


Before Backstrom did it, you had to go back to the 2010-11 season when Daniel Sedin and Martin St. Louis both did it. It was quite an accomplishment for Kessel and he could be joined by Blake Wheeler this week as he has 39 points. Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin would each need four points to hit the mark and the Penguins have only two games remaining so it is doubtful.


At the other end of the scale, Brandon Saad has only one power play point in ­­170:49 minutes of power play time. You have to wonder how long it takes some coaches to realize that this is not working.
