Fantasy Friday: 10 interesting fantasy stats

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Fantasy hockey is all about numbers and statistics. Whether it's the generic goals, assists and points or the new advanced metrics, statistics are the bread and butter.

So in the latest edition of Fantasy Friday, I'm going to look at 10 of the most interesting or strange statistics in the NHL right now and how they relate to fantasy hockey.

1. Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek has 50 shots on goal (SOG) and no goals to show for it. That's the most shots of any player without a goal this season. Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown is second, with 48 shots and no goals. Voracek, who has had three straight 20-goal seasons and had 81 points last season, continues to play alongside Claude Giroux and it's only a matter of time before he starts scoring again. Now is probably your last chance to buy low on him. Brown, owned in 12 percent of Yahoo leagues, has been playing mostly with Anze Kopitar of late, but he hasn't been a useful fantasy player for the past two seasons (unless you're in a hits league). I would leave Brown on waivers.

Trust helped Fedorov travel from Russia to Hall

Friday, 11.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Hall of Fame

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com takes a look at each of the seven individuals who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

Jim Lites sat in the lobby of the Shilo Inn in Portland, Ore., in July 1990. He was waiting, hoping, wondering, fearing and scheming.

Lites, now president of the Dallas Stars, was working as an executive vice president for the Detroit Red Wings. Thirteen months before Lites sat in that airport hotel lobby, the Red Wings picked a Russian center with supreme skills named Sergei Fedorov in the fourth round of the 1989 NHL Draft.

Fedorov would eventually become the all-time leading scorer among Russians with 483 goals and 696 assists for 1,179 points in 1,248 NHL games. He would score 400 goals and 954 points in 908 games with the Red Wings. He would win the Stanley Cup three times with the Red Wings and score 176 points in 183 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He would win the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player once and the Selke Trophy as its top defensive forward twice.

Sergei Fedorov, who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, was known as arguably the most dynamic player in the NHL in the 1990s. The forward's world-class skills helped the Detroit Red Wings win the Stanley Cup three times (1997, 1998, 2002).

Fedorov retired from the NHL in 2009 as the all-time leading scorer among Russian players with 483 goals and 696 assists for 1,179 points in 1,248 games. He scored 400 goals and had 554 assists for 954 points in 908 games with the Red Wings. He had 176 points in 183 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Here's what people around the game have to say about Fedorov:

Cup winner DiPenta leading fight against blood cancer

Friday, 11.06.2015 / 3:00 AM / Hockey Fights Cancer

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Joe DiPenta accomplished the ultimate goal of his NHL career in 2007 when he won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Anaheim Ducks.

He has since taken on an even greater objective in the fight against cancer as executive director of the Atlantic Canada chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Canada.

"When I lifted that Cup above my head, those were the best six seconds of my life and the pinnacle of my career because it was the exclamation point for all the hard work and sacrifices that went into having that moment," DiPenta said. "I believe one day we'll have a similar feeling in discovering a cure for blood cancer.

"I'm already seeing it and the feeling is right up there with that feeling I had winning the Cup. It's a lofty goal, it's a dream and it's something I'm striving towards."
