Odds and Ends: Leftover Stats from Week 2
Odds and Ends: Leftover Stats from Week 2

Some food for thought…

.913

That's Jonathan Quick's even-strength save percentage since his injury-shortened 2016-17 season, 35th of 38 goalies with at least 100 appearances, behind former backup Jonathan Bernier (.916), tied with Craig Anderson and slightly better than Cam Ward (.911). The Kings' demise has been a long time coming after a series of mediocre drafts failed to add impact rookies and keep its Stanley Cup window open for an aging core.

Already 33 with a ton of mileage, Quick has been bad to mediocre the last few seasons.  Backup Jack Campbell is 2-0-0 and owned in just 5 percent of Yahoo leagues. That number needs to be much higher with the Kings entering a timeshare in net without officially declaring one.

501

That's Kris Letang's career point total after a two-point effort last night, the first Penguins defenseman to do so and the second defenseman after Keith Yandle to reach that milestone from a loaded 2005 draft class. He's averaged 0.665 points per game in his career, fourth among active defensemen who have scored at least 100 points since the 2006-07 season.

There are two minor surprises in the top 5: John Klingberg (0.697, 2nd) and Tyson Barrie (0.635, 5th). Relative to where they've been drafted, Klingberg (67.3 ADP on Yahoo) and Barrie (79.2 ADP) seem to be underrated keeper league assets, especially when it comes to scoring. Victor Hedman (0.602 ppg, 30.2 ADP on Yahoo) and Roman Josi (0.622, 43.6) are held in higher regard
