any stat on how many pp goals have been scored against when he's on the PK?
Unfortunately I don't have access to those stats. They definitely aren't on the NHL.com site. I know they do exist because Bruce MacLeod has did the statistical analysis of individual players on the PK earlier in the year.
17 games played 3 g, 2a for 5 pts +5 rating 16 shots, 18.75%
Not too bad for a 4th liner brought in to just fill a roster spot.
14 games with Tampa Bay he was -3 with 0 pts.
Maybe not to the same extent, but he reminds me alot of Dan Cleary when he got here. He plays and skates hard every shift and chips in with the odd point.
Just something positive to look at from this year so far. Mr. Miller may have found a home in Detroit like so many players that just need a coach to give them a role.
Yeah he's been a pleasant surprise. His stats would average out to a 14g 10a 24pt season over a full 82 games, which is excellent for a 4th liner.
Here are some more key stats:
Hits: 36 in 17 games (avg ~2 per game) <-- Only Helm, Eaves and Abdelkader have a better average among forwards Blocks: 6 in 17 games (should be averaging more. I'd like to see at least 1 per game, although no one else on the team averages 1 block per game, so maybe that's unrealistic)
Just heard his interview with the Fan 960 Calgary (via their online player). That man was a warrior out there and his body got worn down like that of a warrior. Sounds like he suffered from the same kind of stuff as Holmstrom.
