Here’s an up-to-date table that shows the number of Scoring Chances that came off the stick of each Leaf player thus far in the 2010-11 campaign.
I’ve listed their total count and then the number of chances they had at 5-on-5 and 5-on-4. I have no data from the Nov. 18 game against New Jersey.
TSC – Total Scoring Chances
TGC – Total Goals (scoring chances converted into goals), goals that weren’t counted as a scoring chance are not included. ChS % – Scoring Chance Shooting Percentage.
|Player||TSC||TG||ChS %||5v5 C||5v5 G||5v4 C||5v4 G|
A few notes:
– The Leafs top six forwards have taken 67.9 % (368 of 542) of all Toronto’s scoring chances; at 5-on-5, 65.0 % (253 of 389).
– Phil Kessel leads the team in Scoring Chances as well as total goals. Per game, Kessel averages 2.7 chances.
– In the first 12 games of the season, Mikhail Grabovski had 24 chances and no goals. Since then, he’s scored 9 goals on 48 chances and added 2 more goals from non-scoring chance areas (he’s been scoring from everywhere lately). He has 8 goals in his last 9 games, and 12 in his last 21.
– Nazem Kadri ought to hit the back of the net one of these days, as he currently sits with 17 chances but has yet to score his first NHL goal.
– Kris Versteeg scored 3 goals while the Leafs had a two-man advantage, off of 4 chances. Meanwhile, he leads the team in SCs at 5-on-4 and potted just 1 goal there.
– Clark MacArthur has contributed only 6 Scoring Chances in his last 10 games.
