'Official' man games lost to injury
Ten days ago, I put together some rough estimates when it comes to man games lost to injury, but earlier tonight, I came across the "official" figures in team reports available on the NHL's media website.
Here they are, with team rankings in the standings (before Monday's games):
|Rk||Teams||Games lost||NHL pos.|
Keep in mind that these figures include everyone, even players who have missed the entire season and fringe callups who have been injured when with the NHL team.
UPDATE A team official has filled me in on how he calculates these figures, and players who have missed the entire season are generally not included: "A 'man game lost' occurs when a player who is eligible to play in a game can't play due to illness or injury. So by that definition, I only include players on our active roster to count for this."
