[Wild About Numbers]: Minnesota Wild Individual Even Strength Scoring Rankings (2000-2014)

Retro Wild - Doug Pensinger

Which forwards and defencemen recorded the best points per 60 at even strength for the Wild each season since the franchise entered the NHL?

Today's 'Wild About Numbers' features some digging through the Wild's 14 year history. I decided to go back through each season and (using the data on NHL.com) record the even strength (EV) points scored by each forward and defenceman (I excluded ones who scored an insignificant amount of points or played very few games) as well as the amount of EV minutes they played and use that data to calculate and rank their individual P/60.

This data is only available back as far as 2011-12 on Extra Skater and Hockey Analysis only has 5v5 scoring so I had no other choice but to calculate the numbers manually.

These numbers should at the very least let you get lost in some early Wild nostalgia and see which players were productive by stats that likely weren't available at the time.

  • The Wild had a pretty small core in these early days. Scott Pellerin was the most efficient scoring forward while a young Willie Mitchell led the way for the defencemen.
  • Young Marian Gaborik was a pretty good EV scorer even in his rookie season.

  • Gaborik and Brunette were running the show by the franchise's 2nd season.
  • Pascal Dupuis was now on the scene but he hadn't found much production at EV yet.
  • Nick Schultz scored at around 0.5 P/60 at EV, a rate which he would maintain for roughly the next 6 years.

  • Last season was all about Matt Cullen, who enjoyed a fantastic year in terms of production.
  • Bouchard, in a year where he received a lot of criticism, scored faster than Parise and Koivu at EV.
  • Granlund was written off as a bust while Jason Zucker was hailed as a savior but it's hard to understand why looking at their respective production rates at EV.

  • It might surprise some that Marty Havlat sneaks in at no.9 for his 2011 season.

  • Four entries from the 2012 season make the top-10 here (surprise, surprise) with Jed Ortemyer and Colton Gillies occupying the top-2 spots. Congrats, guys, you posted the worst scoring rates at EV in Minnesota Wild history.
  • Two former Wild 1st round picks make the top-5, which is kind of depressing.
  • Veilleux, Konopka, Zucker and Rupp all make the top-15 based on their 2014 scoring rates.

  • "Surprisingly", it's another entry from the 2012 season that takes the top spot here. Nick Schultz is the proud owner of the worst EV scoring rate in a season for a Wild defenceman. He beat our luminaries such as Greg Zanon and Cam Barker for this honour.
  • Clayton Stoner is the highest ranking player from this season but he will not be able to make a push for the top-10 due to his season ending injury. Jonas Brodin is 25th for his current performance.
