My Own Personal End of Year "Awards"

via <a href=""></a>

The Kings have done their boring awards. I am doing mine. Mine are nothing other than looking at stats I find telling for one reason or another. Nearly all of them are from the invaluable (without which life is an tawdry simulacrum of itself). The rest are from

Some definitions: GF = goals for. GA = goals against. ON = player is on the ice. /60 = per sixty minutes of ice-time (5on5, unless otherwise noted). QUALCOMP = quality of competition. SF = Shots for. SA = shots against. PF = penalties for. PA = penalties against (note: against means taken by the opponent). PTAKE = penalties taken. PDRAW = penalties drawn. CORSI = total shot events for minus total shot events against (shot events are shots, missed shots and blocked shots; literally, all shots no matter the outcome).

Rating (+/- relative to team): Scott Parse 1.35, Wayne Simmonds 1.26.

Most GFON/60: Parse 3.26, Simmonds 2.96. (I know I've pointed this out before, but it never gets old.)

PLUS/MINUS - D: Doughty +19 (12th among defensemen in NHL).

SHOOTOUT SH%: Handzus 63%, Kopitar 50%, Johnson 35%, Stoll 33%, Brown 18%



  • Scott Parse and Wayne Simmonds pop up a lot.
  • Justin Williams has been quietly doing very well for a guy who was hurt half the year.
  • Richardson has had a pretty great year, as his penalties drawn, hits and take-aways show.
  • The three players who seem to shoot wide the most actually do shoot wide the most.
  • I'm fascinated by the fact that Kings goalies have the highest SV% when Stoll and Parse are on the ice. I can imagine this being a good thing or a bad thing. I choose to believe it's good.
  • Not only does Moller not take penalties, but the team doesn't take penalties when he's on the ice. This despite playing major 4th line minutes.
  • Brown, Scuderi and Doughty play against the other team's best.
