5v5close Primary Points per 60 minutes Leaders
My intention is to add primary point totals to stats.hockeyanalysis.com sometime this summer but I have calculated them over the past 4 seasons during 5v5close play and thought I’d present a more complete leader board here (I mentioned the top 5 on twitter already).
It is amazing how far ahead of everyone Crosby is. He is in a league of his own offensively. Most of the names on here you’d expect but it is surprising to see Kadri that high as well as Perreault at #30 who the Ducks picked up pretty cheaply from the Capitals last September.
Primary points are goals and first assists (secondary assists are not included).
5v5close play is 5v5 play when teams are within 1 goal of each other in first or second period or tied in the third period.
