Today's prop bet takes a stab at guessing Braden Holtby's 2013-14 workload.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Spo

In 2012-13, Braden Holtby made 61 regular-season appearances - 25 in the AHL while he waited out the lockout (24 of which were starts), and 36 in the NHL once its season got underway (35 starts). Coincidentally (or not), that NHL total prorates to 61 appearances over an 82-game season.

The last time the NHL played a full season, 13 netminders made 60 or more regular season appearances. Ditto 2010-11, and in 2009-10, there were 14.

So today's question - will Braden Holtby make 60 appearances during the 2013-14 regular season?
