We're past the quarter mark of the 2014-15 season, and although there's still plenty of hockey remaining on the NHL schedule, we've learned a good deal about all 30 teams. From some of the League's biggest surprises, to those who continue to produce season after season, there are plenty of numbers to dissect from the season's first quarter.
Here are some of the most interesting numbers and trends:
Rick Nash's even-strength scoring
Since being traded to the New York Rangers before the 2012-13 season, Rick Nash has been the most prolific even-strength goal-scorer in the NHL. He averaged 1.37 goals per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 he played in 2012-13 and 2014-15, most among players with 100 or more games, according to HockeyAnalysis.com.It's been no different this season for Nash, who led the League entering Saturday with 2.76 goals for every 60 minutes at 5-on-5.
