USING NUMBERS TO LOOK AT THE NHL'S FUTURE STARS
I recently charted split stat numbers for most of the top 1st year draft eligible prospects playing in the CHL.
In that post the numbers were charted and separated by both position and league, so it was difficult to compare, say, a highly touted QMJHL defenseman to a highly touted OHL defenseman.
To make it easier to compare numbers, I tabled draft eligibles from all three leagues, and sorted by most points per game in the 1st half, 2nd half, and differential so you can see exactly whose production increased or decreased as the year went on.
Note: there are more OHLers than any other because that is the league I am most familiar with, and I originally was only keeping track of splits for OHL players.
1st Half Production – Forwards
1st Half Production – Defensemen
2nd Half Production – Forwards
2nd Half Production – Defensemen
Differential – Forwards
Differential – Defensemen
