Goals/60 Leaders (2023-01-06)

I like to keep an eye on Goals/60 rates in the NHL. The idea is to quickly identify skaters who are scoring right now as well as skaters who might do well if they get more time-on-ice.

Set out below is league-wide data, along with data that’s specific to under-25 skaters and defensemen. Each group of data is presented in a plot and a table.
