Ovechkin a perfect 10

Monday, October 21, 2013

While power play points are important, sometimes it's also good to see what other teammates are on the ice but are not getting the points.


I remember two seasons ago Matt Moulson was on the ice for eight power play goals early in the season but did not have a power play point. After this point in time, he had 14 points on the next 15 goals.


Don’t forget, for everything NHL, check out Rotoworld's Player News, and follow @Rotoworld_ HK and @mfinewaxhockey on Twitter.


It's not too late to join a Yahoo! Hockey pool.


The following players have been on the ice for all their team's goals. I'm only looking at teams that have at least six power play goals as less than that is too small to look at.


Alex Ovechkin - 10

Jeff Skinner - 6

Daniel Alfredsson - 6


That's it. Only three players. Nine players have been on the ice for all but one goal and have been on the ice for least six times.


Nicklas Backstrom - 9 of 10

Mike Green - 9 of 10

Andrei Markov - 7 of 8

P.K. Subban - 7 of 8

Matt Moulson - 6 of 7

John Tavares - 6 of 7

Frans Nielsen - 6 of 7

Evgeni Malkin - 6 of 7

Sidney Crosby - 6 of 7


Next week I'll look at players who are playing a lot on the power play but have yet to pick up a point.
