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.
