The Noon Number: 41

It's all about scoring with today's number

41: The number of points Erik Karlsson has earned since January 1st. That is four more than any other defender, and ninth best when you include forwards.

It's not just points he's leading defensemen in for that window. There's also on-ice scoring chances and scoring chance differential, as well as individual scoring chances. Shot on net? Both individual and on-ice, as well as on-ice shot differential. Same for goals.

He certainly doesn't lead every category, though, and one notable category that Karlsson doesn't have the most of during that stretch?


It's P.K. Subban that holds that honour.
