In part three of the penalty kill series, we take a look that the individual performance of the Winnipeg Jets penalty killing forwards. If you missed the piece on the team PK you can find it: here The piece on the Jets defenders can be found: here. As with the last piece, overall team numbers will be included as a point of reference.
Again, nothing new here. The table has been copied and pasted out of a previous article to provides a baseline for what the players have accomplished individually.
Individual Forward's on Ice Stats:
|Player Name||TOI||FF/60||FA/60||FF%||GF||GA||On-Ice Sv%||GA/60||SF/60||SA/60|
* Fenwick is simply shots and missed shots. It was used over Corsi so as to not punish players for shot blocking.
- The table is sorted by Fenwick (shots + missed shots) against.
- All of the stats on the table are "on ice" numbers. They are subject to team effect and don't factor in the quality of linemates.
- One or tow goals makes a huge difference in goal rates when you are talking 40-80 minutes and 50 ish shots on goal.
- Adding Blake Wheeler to the penalty kill looks to have been a wise decision.
- Matt Halischuk is a decent little penalty killer. He has performed well historically as well.
- Why did Noel insist on playing James Wright a ton when Frolik was available? Less Wright means a more effective PK.
- Kane's numbers are way down from a year ago, but that should be expected after a switch from Alexander Burmistrov to James Wright as a primary partner.
- Primary parings were Kane-Wright, Ladd-Little, injuries and Paul Maurice caused some major jumbles down the stretch.
- Ladd and Little weren't a dominant duo, but they were a threat to score. For what it is worth, they were also frequently paired with Jacob Trouba and Mark Stuart. Mark Stuart was the Jets' least effective shot suppressor on D. Amongst this quartet, the the cause and effected are unknown via numbers - feel free to speculate in the comment section.
