Power Play Report

PPR: Sebastian Aho is AOK

by Matt Riegler
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

You'll never believe who led Week 17 in power play points – Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen with three each. Okay, so perhaps they're all pretty believable. Marchand and Aho scored twice, matched only by Sean Monahan and Patrick Marleau. While Pastrnak and Teravainen both contributed a trio of helpers.

 

Let's also take a quick trip through your seasonal leaders. Brayden Schenn is your goal-scoring kingpin at the moment with a dozen tallies. Hoffman trails behind with 11 as six others sit with 10 markers. As has now become his customary position, Alexander Wennberg leads with 18 assists. Claude Giroux trails by one helper and four others rank third with 16 assists.

 

We're also now up with five whole players who've cracked the 20-point plateau, with three others knocking on the door at 19. Phil Kessel leads the way with 23 points as Giroux has 22 and Schenn has 21. Nicklas Backstrom and Wennberg both have 20 points as well.

 

Finally – scheduling notes! This is a zany one folks, so take note:

 

Calgary plays just once, Tuesday home to Pittsburgh. Edmonton also plays just once as they ride out their bye week, they'll host Chicago on Saturday.

 

Arizona, Carolina, Florida, Los Angeles and New Jersey play twice each. Only Arizona fails to play in the first half of the week at least once.

 

Anaheim, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, New York Rangers, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington and Winnipeg each play three times.

 

And finally Buffalo plays a whopping five times! They'll rest only on Tuesday and Thursday, with only two "away" games in New Jersey and Toronto. If your team isn't listed in this portion, they're playing four times this week. Adjust your rosters accordingly!

ANAHEIM

Cam Fowler: 11 points (5 goals) in 179:50 of power play time this season

Corey Perry: 17 points (3 goals) in 167:54

Ryan Kesler: 17 points (7 goals) in 162:36

Ryan Getzlaf: 15 points (3 goals) in 154:23

Sami Vatanen: 11 points (2 goals) in 148:38

Antoine Vermette: 8 points (3 goals) in 99:56

 

The Ducks went 1/9 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 36/170 or 21.2%. Mark it now 2/13 on the man-advantage for the Ducks over the last pair of weeks. Anaheim continues to be led by their top-five with situational subs for that vaunted sixth slot. Behind Vermette lies Rickard Rakell with nine points and five goals in 99:17 of action, and Jakob Silfverberg with six points and four goals in 95:36. What separates the genuinely less-talented Vermette? He takes faceoffs. His 62/98 is second only to Kesler.

 

 

ARIZONA

Oliver Ekman-Larsson: 14 points (7 goals) in 198:42 of power play time this season

Radim Vrbata: 11 points (3 goals) in 147:13

Martin Hanzal: 7 points (3 goals) in 127:51

Alex Goligoski: 5 points in 109:33

Max Domi: 4 points (2 goals) in 75:44

Shane Doan: 4 points (2 goals) in 74:53

 

The Coyotes went 2/10 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 24/154 or 15.6%. Perhaps a sign Coyotes fan can take to heart is that they run seven-deep with contributors over the last two weeks. Alexander Burmistrov, Ekman-Larsson and Doan have lit the lamp as Michael Stone, Jamie McGinn, Goligoski and Vrbata also chipped in with helpers.

 

 

BOSTON

Torey Krug: 15 points (3 goals) in 180:32 of power play time this season

Patrice Bergeron: 10 points (7 goals) in 158:50

David Krejci: 10 points (5 goals) in 156:41

Brad Marchand: 16 points (6 goals) in 144:55

Ryan Spooner: 12 points (2 goals) in 143:22

David Pastrnak: 12 points (4 goals) in 122:08

 

The Bruins went 5/11 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 33/172 or 19.2%. Talk about a sudden outburst! Beantown ran flush with contributors last week so let's take a look. Marchand led the way with two goals and three points, matched in the latter only by Pastrnak's leading three helpers. Bergeron and Krug both posted both a goal and an assist, Spooner pitcher in with two assists. Frank Vatrano lit the lamp, and both Colin Miller and Krejci added in a helper.

 

 

BUFFALO

Rasmus Ristolainen: 17 points (a goal) in 176:23 of power play time this season

Sam Reinhart: 13 points (6 goals) in 166:17

Kyle Okposo: 17 points (7 goals) in 164:25

Ryan O'Reilly: 14 points (3 goals) in 128:07

Matt Moulson: 13 points (8 goals) in 126:01

Jack Eichel: 10 points (5 goals) in 97:19

 

The Sabres went 1/6 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 35/157 or 22.3%. Buffalo is suddenly starved for opportunities. They've had just 10 over the last two weeks, converting twice. Thank Moulson and captain Brian Gionta for those lit lamps. Evander Kane has pitched in with a helper on both, and Gionta also chipped in with an assist. Tack on Cody Franson's assist and you have your four contributors over the last two weeks.

 

 

CALGARY

Sean Monahan: 12 points (6 goals) in 174:37 of power play time this season

Johnny Gaudreau: 12 points (2 goals) in 156:07

Mark Giordano: 12 points (3 goals) in 153:39

T.J. Brodie: 8 points (a goal) in 151:56

Troy Brouwer: 9 points (3 goals) in 129:00

Dougie Hamilton: 11 points (a goal) in 126:11

 

The Flames went 4/8 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 39/180 or 21.7%. Check out that first power play tally by Hamilton. Can you believe there was so much early-season talk of trading him? Kris Versteeg also scored and Monahan lit the lamp twice as well during Calgary's sterling week. Only Brodie and Gaudreau matched Monahan in points with a pair of helpers. Mikael Backlund, Troy Brouwer, Matthew Tkachuk and Dennis Wideman also chipped in with assists.  Hopefully this is all just a sign of things to come.

 

CAROLINA

Jeff Skinner: 12 points (5 goals) in 123:08 of power play time this season

Justin Faulk: 7 points (2 goals) in 122:42

Victor Rask: 7 points (3 goals) in 119:52

Noah Hanifin: 7 points (2 goals) in 111:20

Sebastian Aho: 9 points (3 goals) in 106:56

Teuvo Teravainen: 10 points (3 goals) in 106:33

 

The Hurricanes went 3/11 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 26/152 or 17.1%. And just like that, their power play is up and dominating again over the last two weeks. Aho leads the way with two goals and four points. Teravainen follows up with a team-high three assists. Faulk has posted both a goal and an assist, as Elias Lindholm pitched in a pair of helpers and Jordan Staal tacked on a goal. Teams should be fearful.

 

 

CHICAGO

Patrick Kane: 14 points (3 goals) in 197:33 of power play time this season

Duncan Keith: 13 points (2 goals) in 184:54

Artemi Panarin: 15 points (7 goals) in 179:34

Brent Seabrook: 12 points (2 goals) in 161:48

Artem Anisimov: 8 points (4 goals) in 137:44

Jonathan Toews: 9 points (4 goals) in 121:24

 

The Blackhawks went 3/9 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 30/162 or 18.5%. Don't look now but after going 1/13 of the last two weeks, Second City has caught a second wind on the man-advantage. Marian Hossa and Toews led the way with a goal and assist each, matched in points only by Keith's pair of helpers. Kane lit the lamp, and both Seabrook and Panarin picked up assists. See anything strange in there? Neither do I. Teams should take notice too.

 

 

COLORADO

Nathan MacKinnon: 9 points (2 goals) in 149:19 of power play time this season

Tyson Barrie: 7 points in 148:47

Mikko Rantanen: 7 points (3 goals) in 136:33

Matt Duchene: 9 points (3 goals) in 125:00

Jarome Iginla: 8 points (4 goals) in 115:04

Gabriel Landeskog: 3 points (all goals) in 100:51

 

The Avalanche went 1/10 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 22/156 or 14.1%. The slide continues as the Mile High City is now 4/18 over the last three weeks, which wouldn't be so bad if it were concentrated over a shorter span of time. Anyway, both Duchene and Iginla are doing wonders for their potential trade value. Duchene leads the way with a goal and three points, and the future Hall of Famer has two goals. Landeskog for his part also has a goal. Stay tuned.

 

 

COLUMBUS

Zach Werenski: 17 points (4 goals) in 145:28 of power play time this season

Alexander Wennberg: 20 points (2 goals) in 138:35

Nick Foligno: 18 points (9 goals) in 138:08

Cam Atkinson: 19 points (9 goals) in 134:57

Sam Gagner: 15 points (6 goals) in 132:37

Brandon Saad: 2 points (a goal) in 79:58

 

The Blue Jackets went 0/2 on the power play during the 17thweek of action, bringing their season's sum to 35/144 or 24.3%. Mark it two weeks in a row that Columbus has gone 0/2 with the man-advantage. Despite sitting eighth in the NHL with 35 tallies, they're still 29th in total opportunities. Only Minnesota has fewer at 140.

 

 

DALLAS

Tyler Seguin: 19 points (7 goals) 183:20 of power play time this season

John Klingberg: 12 points (3 goals) in 177:53

Jamie Benn: 18 points (9 goals) in 168:21

Patrick Eaves: 15 points (10 goals) in 159:26

Jason Spezza: 15 points (a goal) in 138:34

Devin Shore: 3 points in 102:05

 

The Stars went 2/6 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 32/180 or 17.8%. Last week I gushed about Patrick Eaves, and rightfully so. This week I'd simply like to query why Shore is getting so much opportunity. Sure, outside of the top-five there's only two goals and 14 points scored but even Shore isn't doing ancillary things like shooting (23) and winnings draws (26/59) at a noteworthy clip. Be that as it may, Spezza's return isn't imminent and the neither Patrick Sharp nor Jiri Hudler have produced when they have played. Suffice it to say, perhaps Shore is simply the best coach Lindy Ruff thinks he can dish out. (Though I would still vote heavily for Julius Honka.)

 

 

DETROIT

Henrik Zetterberg: 5 points (a goal) in 165:57 of power play time this season

Gustav Nyquist: 4 points (a goal) in 155:48

Mike Green: 6 points (2 goals) in 144:48

Tomas Tatar: 2 points (a goal) in 134:20

Frans Nielsen: 8 points (a goal) in 130:21

Thomas Vanek: 7 points (3 goals) in 118:16

 

The Red Wings went 1/12 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 19/174 or 10.9%. Unfortunately the news just keeps getting worse. Dating back to the turn of the calendar MoTown has the worst man-advantage by a significant margin. They're 4/49 or just 8.2%. That's the worst conversion rate and the fewest goals with, perhaps not-so-ironically the seventh-most opportunities.

 

 

EDMONTON

Connor McDavid: 16 points (2 goals) in 171:47 of power play time this season

Leon Draisaitl: 18 points (9 goals) in 161:25

Milan Lucic: 15 points (5 goals) in 157:31

Jordan Eberle: 11 points (3 goals) in 136:48

Andrej Sekera: 8 points (a goal) in 132:32

Oscar Klefbom: 6 points (2 goals) in 130:01

 

The Oilers went 1/13 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 34/170 or 20%. Edmonton's conversion rate dropped by a full point, which is rather impressive. They'll have the next five days to rest and regroup as the Oilers head into their bye week.

 

 

FLORIDA

Keith Yandle: 11 points (2 goals) in 170:33 of power play time this season

Vincent Trocheck: 8 points (2 goals) in 158:20

Aaron Ekblad: 5 points (2 goals) in 156:14

Jaromir Jagr: 9 points (5 goals) in 153:38

Reilly Smith: 8 points (6 goals) in 134:21

Jonathan Marchessault: 11 points (4 goals) in 127:47

 

The Panthers went 0/8 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 26/176 or 14.8%. Just when I thought the Cats were turning it around, they lay an egg. Florida got 14 shots on net, led by Smith's trio.

 

 

LOS ANGELES

Drew Doughty: 13 points (3 goals) in 173:56 of power play time this season

Jeff Carter: 15 points (9 goals) in 150:56

Anze Kopitar: 9 points (a goal) in 142:00

Tanner Pearson: 4 points (a goal) in 120:53

Jake Muzzin: 6 points (4 goals) in 119:29

Alec Martinez: 7 points (a goal) in 117:40

 

The Kings went 2/12 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 26/153 or 17%. Carter's MVP-caliber season continues. He picked up another goal and two points since last week, giving him 27 goals and 47 points on the season. His goals rank second only to Sidney Crosby's 30 and his points rank tied for 13th in the league. Carter has reached the 30-goal mark thricely before, from 2008-10, ages 24-26, with Philadelphia. He scored a high of 46 in 2008-09 then, and it'll be fun to see how close he gets to it.

 

MINNESOTA

Ryan Suter: 8 points (3 goals) in 139:24 of power play time this season

Eric Staal: 11 points (2 goals) in 121:45

Charlie Coyle: 7 points (4 goals) in 118:42

Matt Dumba: 8 points (3 goals) in 115:59

Mikko Koivu: 10 points (2 goals) in 109:29

Mikael Granlund: 12 points (2 goals) in 106:01

 

The Wild went 0/5 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 29/140 or 20.7%. Much has been made of Columbus' man-advantage this season but there's one team that's seen fewer opportunities thus far, and it's Minnesota. They certainly have the talent to maintain their sterling rate, but any boost to the offense would surely be appreciated.

 

 

MONTREAL

Shea Weber: 18 points (10 goals) in 183:01 of power play time this season

Max Pacioretty: 9 points (6 goals) in 150:35

Alexander Radulov:15 points (6 goals) in 149:28

Jeff Petry: 6 points (2 goals) in 100:35

Brendan Gallagher: 2 points (a goal) in 96:53

Andrei Markov: 8 points in 96:53

 

The Canadiens went 0/6 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 36/159 or 22.6%. After a massive improvement the bottom fell out. Nathan Beaulieu continues to impress this season, posting 10 assists and 15 shots in 94:22 of action. Alex Galchenyuk's production will continue to be depended upon. He has 11 points with four goals on 13 shots in 78:39 thus far.

 

 

NASHVILLE

Ryan Johansen: 15 points (3 goals) in 155:24 of power play time this season

Roman Josi: 9 points (2 goals) in 140:20

Filip Forsberg: 6 points (2 goals) in 138:36

Mike Fisher: 13 points (6 goals) in 130:07

James Neal: 6 points (2 goals) in 124:31

Mike Ribeiro: 7 points (2 goals) in 118:05

 

The Predators went 1/8 on the power play time during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 30/169 or 17.8%. Well, we can all forget about Ribeiro now. The veteran pivot was shuttled down to AHL Milwaukee on Friday after requesting a trade on Wednesday. Trailing right behind him in time is P.K. Subban, who has seven points with three goals and 27 shots in 105:28. Mattias Ekholm follows with three points and 13 shots in 102:52, as Ryan Ellis has also seen five points with a goal and 20 shots in 101:45. Colin Wilson, then next-highest ranked forward has five points with four goals on 18 shots in 88:05.

 

 

NEW JERSEY

Kyle Palmieri: 13 points (5 goals) in 145:27 of power play time this season

Travis Zajac: 7 points (4 goals) in 145:10

Adam Henrique: 7 points (3 goals) in 143:44

P.A. Parenteau: 7 points (4 goals) in 132:36

Damon Severson: 9 points in 130:22

Taylor Hall: 10 points (5 goals) in 128:32

 

The Devils went 3/6 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 27/174 or 15.5%. Finally a little life in the Garden State with the man-advantage. Henrique led the way with two points, both assists. Palmieri, Zajac and Pavel Zacha each lit the lamp. Parenteau, Hall, Miles Wood and Mike Cammalleri each chipped in with the helper.

 

 

NEW YORK ISLANDERS

John Tavares: 12 points (6 goals) in 163:00 of power play time this season

Nick Leddy: 10 points (2 goals) in 158:32

Josh Bailey: 10 points (3 goals) in 144:28

Ryan Strome: 5 points (a goal) in 132:33

Anders Lee: 8 points (5 goals) in 114:31

Brock Nelson: 5 points (a goal) in 98:14

 

The Islanders went 3/11 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 23/148 or 15.5%. Suddenly there's new life in Brooklyn. Lee led the way with two assists, as each of Bailey, Tavares and Alan Quine lit the lamp. Calvin de Haan, Andrew Ladd and Strome each chipped in with assists as well. A little puck luck can go a long way.

 

 

NEW YORK RANGERS

Ryan McDonagh: 12 points (a goal) in 166:07 of power play time this season

Mats Zuccarello: 8 points (3 goals) in 145:35

Derek Stepan: 11 points (a goal) in 135:15

Brandon Pirri: 9 points (5 goals) in 132:13

Chris Kreider: 9 points (5 goals) in 122:04

Jimmy Vesey: 7 points (4 goals) in 89:57

 

The Rangers went 2/5 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 33/155 or 21.3%. Rick Nash and Zuccarello tallied the Blueshirts' goals as Stepan and J.T. Miller added in an assist each, but it was Captain McDonagh who led the way with two assists – including his 200th career point on Sunday.

 

 

OTTAWA

Erik Karlsson: 16 points (a goal) in 189:11 of power play time this season

Mark Stone: 12 points (5 goals) in 156:23

Mike Hoffman: 17 points (11 goals) in 146:46

Kyle Turris: 11 points (3 goals) in 143:24

Dion Phaneuf: 11 points (3 goals) in 141:35

Derick Brassard: 4 points (a goal) in 129:15

 

The Senators went 2/11 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 28/161 or 17.4%. More excellence in Canada's Capital from Hoffman, who scored both a goal and an assist. Turris matched him, as both Stone and Karlsson chipped in with assists. Hoffman, by the way, sits tied for third with Tyler Seguin for third-most shots on net with man-advantage with 60. Brent Burns (61) and Alex Ovechkin (63) are the only ones with more.

 

 

PHILADELPHIA

Claude Giroux: 22 points (5 goals) in 199:42 of power play time this season

Wayne Simmonds: 18 points (10 goals) in 198:36

Jakub Voracek: 17 points (3 goals) in 198:15

Brayden Schenn: 21 points (12 goals) in 189:27

Shayne Gostisbehere: 13 points (a goal) in 187:52

Mark Streit: 8 points (a goal) in 101:25

 

The Flyers went 2/10 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 39/182 or 21.4%. Who else but Schenn leading the way with both a goal and an assist during the week. Giroux also lit the lamp as Voracek, Streit, and Gostisbehere each chipped in with helpers.

 

 

PITTSBURGH

Phil Kessel: 23 points (7 goals) in 188:01 of power play time this season

Evgeni Malkin: 19 points (8 goals) in 174:13

Sidney Crosby: 17 points (10 goals) in 165:02

Patric Hornqvist: 12 points (8 goals) in 140:46

Justin Schultz: 12 points (a goal) in 128:16

Kris Letang: 12 points (2 goals) in 126:48

 

The Penguins went 2/9 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 40/176 or 22.7%. Y'know who leads the team in assists with the man-advantage? Kessel, of course. He sits just one marker shy of matching his career high set two seasons ago in Toronto. As far as points go 25 is his career high, also set in 2014-15. Ironic that he hasn't even so much as been an All-Star since.

 

SAN JOSE

Brent Burns: 16 points (6 goals) in 198:49 of power play time this season

Joe Thornton: 13 points in 188:31

Joe Pavelski: 17 points (5 goals) in 186:20

Patrick Marleau: 10 points (5 goals) in 168:18

Logan Couture: 9 points (7 goals) in 165:44

Marc-Edouard Vlasic: 6 points (a goal) in 98:12

 

The Sharks went 3/10 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 29/167 or 17.4%. Marleau led the way with two goals, matched in points only by Pavelski and Burns' assists. Joel Ward and Vlasic also picked up assists as Chris Tierney also scored a goal. Crazy stat comparison – Thornton has but 18 shots on net, David Schlemko by comparison has 21 in just 70:51. Jumbo will waltz gracefully into the HHoF, but he needs to shoot some more.

 

 

St. LOUIS

Kevin Shattenkirk: 18 points (7 goals) in 163:41 of power play time this season

Vladimir Tarasenko: 18 points (6 goals) in 153:42

Paul Stastny: 10 points (3 goals) in 134:39

Alexander Steen: 11 points (a goal) in 132:23

Jaden Schwartz: 5 points (3 goals) in 123:24

The Blues went 1/5 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 35/158 or 22.1%. Mark it now two weeks in a row where St. Louis has barely seen any power play opportunity, going 2/9 over that span. Colton Parayko meanwhile scored both goals, and Pietrangelo posted two assists. David Perron and Robby Fabbri had a helper. Fabbri, by the way, is out for the season with a busted ACL in his left knee in case you hadn't heard. He finishes his season with nine points with four goals on 14 shots in 115:49.

 

 

TAMPA BAY

Victor Hedman: 18 points (2 goals) in 156:19 of power play time this season

Tyler Johnson: 14 points (5 goals) in 155:42

Alex Killorn: 9 points (3 goals) in 154:44

Nikita Kucherov: 17 points (7 goals) in 154:36

Jonathan Drouin: 15 points (7 goals) in 128:37

Ondrej Palat: 8 points (3 goals) in 121:56

 

The Lightning went 1/14 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 42/194 or 21.6%. Not-so-suddenly, the Bolts are in a slump with the man-advantage. They're 2/20 over the last pair of weeks. Killorn and Kucherov both tallied a goal and an assist as Drouin picked up a helper. Tampa Bay put just 18 shots on net, led by Kucherov's five and followed by Drouin and Hedman's trio.

 

 

TORONTO

Jake Gardiner: 8 points (2 goals) in 127:09 of power play time this season

Auston Matthews: 12 points (3 goals) in 126:38

James van Riemsdyk: 15 points (4 goals) in 125:46

The Maple Leafs went 2/7 on the power play during the 17th week of action, bringing their season's sum 36/153 or 23.5%. Just a pair of tallies but the Buds ran seven-deep with contributors. Nylander and Bozak lit the lamp as Marner, Matthews, JVR and Connor Brown each put in assists.

 

VANCOUVER

Henrik Sedin: 11 points (a goal) in 166:31 of power play time this season

Daniel Sedin: 11 points (5 goals) in 163:15

Brandon Sutter: 7 points (4 goals) in 154:04
