Power Play Report

Hoffman hits Double Figures

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

Somehow, some way, Claude Giroux still leads the way with 21 points and Brayden Schenn has more goals than anyone else with 11 on the power play. Those are the same marks we left them at last week as their bye week kicked in.

 

However there's a few newcomers into the fray. Stanley Cup Champion Phil Kessel and rookie Alexander Wennberg have also reached the 20-point plateau. Wennberg also leads all with 18 helpers. Meanwhile, Mike Hoffman and some guy named Sidney Crosby have crossed the 10-goal threshold as well as seven others sit tight with nine.

 

Perhaps though what's most remarkable is who failed to capitalize on their opportunities. Philadelphia failed in nine tries, and Chicago did so as well in five. Not that anyone should make a habit of taking penalties against them.

 

Finally a couple of scheduling notes as the NHL's All-Star break kicks in on Friday. Every team will play at least teams, but six more teams have the luxury of playing once more through Thursday. Calgary, Los Angeles, San Jose, Washington and Winnipeg play their back-to-back matches on Monday and Tuesday. While Toronto plays their set on Wednesday and Thursday.

In fact, the Coyotes put just 14 shots on net over the week as a team. On the brighter side, rookie Brendan Perlini picked up his first power play assist and now has two points, and new-comer Alexander Burmistrov has his first helper to his credit as well.

The Flames went 4/12 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 34/160 or 21.3%. What's really interesting about them is that they have seven player who have seen triple-digits worth of ice time, with Mikael Backlund bringing up the rear with 12 points (six goals) in 102:36 thus far. He took a share of the team lead in points for the week with a goal and two points, a sum that four of his teammates also accomplished.

Yikes, it's now been a month-long slump on the man-advantage for Carolina as they've gone 2/30 over the last four weeks. Only Skinner and Sebastian Aho have lit the lamp, and no one has more than a single point.

Brandon Saad: 2 points (a goal) in 127:54

 

The Blue Jackets went 2/13 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 35/140 or 25%. Okay, pack it up Lumbus. Nothing to see here anymore at a mere 25% conversion rate. We all knew you were fake news- is a thing I heard at the bar recently. Ohio hockey continues to lead the NHL in power play efficiency, and sits fourth in the league in total goals with 35. If you can get your hands on anyone inside their top-five above, you can expect them to pay dividends. Especially relative to the rest of the NHL.

The Penguins went 3/7 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 37/156 or 23.7%. Steel City just continues to punish teams for penalizing them, going 9/30 over the last four weeks. Malkin and Kessel lead the way with six points each, as Malkin sits atop the leaderboard with four goals. No one else has more than one, which includes Kessel, Hornqvist, Letang, Matt Cullen and some guy named Crosby or whatever. Kessel, by the way, leads with five helpers.

The Lightning went 2/13 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 40/174 or 23%. If you'd like a bit of perspective of just how productive Steven Stamkos had been on the man-advantage this season, take these numbers into consideration: seven points with three goals on 27 shots in 57:53 over 17 games. That points total sits him tied for fifth on the team, and he still sits tied for fourth in goals. As for his shots? Kucherov leads with 43 as Drouin just tied him, and both Johnson and Hedman boast 26. Finally, Killorn has 24 shots himself.

 

 

TORONTO

Jake Gardiner: 8 points (2 goals) in 114:05 of power play time this season

The Maple Leafs went 2/13 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 33/137 or 24.1%. What's interesting is that Nazem Kadri leads the team with nine goals this season. He boasts 13 overall points in 99:44 of opportunity. No one else has more than Nylander's five markers.

 

 

VANCOUVER

Henrik Sedin: 10 points (a goal) in 162:19 of power play time this season

The Canucks went 1/5 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 20/147 or 13.6%. The Captain Henrik Sedin picked up his 1,000th and 1,001st career points during the week, so let's take a quick dive through his accomplishments with the man-advantage. Of his 223 career goals 61 of them have been scored on the power play, but what's remarkable is that 286 of his assists have also been picked up that way. So, he has more power play assists than career goals scored in all formats. And here we thought his wonder-twin powers with Daniel were weird. Congrats to the sure-fire Hall of Famer on his accomplishment, and here's hoping it won't take too long for Daniel to pick up another 32 points to join the four-digit club.

Backstrom leads the way still but now with four assists and five points. Ovechkin leads with three goals, while Oshie has gotten hot and landed a pair. Backstrom, Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky also lit the lamp.

Mark Scheifele: 10 points (5 goals) in 146:00

Blake Wheeler: 12 points (2 goals) in 142:21

Nikolaj Ehlers: 8 points (4 goals) in 132:18

Patrik Laine: 11 points (7 goals) in 121:36

Mathieu Perreault: 6 points (a goal) in 91:13

 

The Jets went 3/10 on the power play during the 15th week of action, bringing their season's sum to 29/157 or 18.5%. Mark it now 6/23 in the post-Laine era of the power play. So maybe he's not so good after all (kidding!). Scheifele and Perreault lead the way with a trio of points, as Perreault has the assists lead. Bryan Little leads with two goals and four others have matched him at two points. Scheifele, Byfuglien, Ehlers and Drew Stafford have also lit the lamp.
