Top 10 NHL leaders in percentage of team’s PP played.

This issue was brought up in in the comments of Thursday's Caps Clips (1/7/10).  The boss man of the Rink suggested a fan post be dedicated to the subject.  The numbers below represent the league leaders in terms of percentage of their team's power play played.

1.  Ilya Kovalchuk - 86%

2.  Alex Ovechkin - 84%

3.  Mike Green - 83%

4.  Sergei Gonchar - 82%

5.  Mark Streit - 81%

6.  Sidney Crosby - 80%

7.  Martin St. Louis - 80%

8.  Evgeni Malkin - 79%

9.  Drew Doughty - 75%

10.  Tobias Enstrom - 74%

Note:  Tyler Ennis is not included on the list due to the fact he's played only one game this season.

 

Background on the numbers -  The numbers below came from using Individual Player PP TOI data from NHL.com & Team PP TOI data Behindthenet.ca.  The percentage numbers were rounded.   I didn't use game log data for each individual player, so the actual numbers for all but two players (Doughty & Streit) may be slightly different.
