The talk of the NHL these days is the fall of the Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin in particular. This is a pretty telling table in regards to Ovechkin’s fall in offensive production. Stats are Ovechkin’s 5v5 stats over the past 6 seasons.

Season TOI G A Pts Shots Sh% TOI/G TOI/Shot
2012-13 149:14 0 1 1 18 0.00%  - 8:17
2011-12 1193:36 19 15 34 206 9.22% 62:49 5:48
2010-11 1230:48 17 30 47 230 7.39% 72:24 5:21
2009-10 1125:08 32 33 65 246 13.01% 35:10 4:34

His shooting percentages dropped off a bit the past 2 years at least as important as that is his shot rates have dropped off from a shot every 4-4.5 minutes to a shot about every 5.5 minutes the past two years. This year his shot rate has fallen off a cliff to only getting a shot every 8 minutes which about double where he was during the 3 seasons from 2007-08 to 2009-10.
