By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2011-12 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on forward Johan Franzen.
Franzen led the team in scoring for the second consecutive season with 29 goals. Also picked up 27 assists, which gave him a total of 56 points by the season’s end -- the fourth highest on the team. The only time he has scored more goals in a season was in 2008-09, when he accumulated a total of 34.
Number of game-winning goals that Franzen scored this season, the third-best in the league and the highest on the team.
Led the team with 11 power-play goals, and scored on the power play in three consecutive road games (against Buffalo, Colorado and St Louis) in December. Over the course of his seven-season career, the forward has scored 52 power-play goals.
On five separate occasions, Franzen had four-game point streaks during the first half of the season. The Wings won each of the 12 games during his first three streaks.
Had 13 multi-point games this season, including three three-point performances in games against Columbus (Oct. 21), Anaheim (Nov. 5) and Colorado (Nov. 8).
Was only Wings' player to record a hat trick this season, doing so in a 5-2 win against Colorado (Nov. 8) at Joe Louis Arena.
