2011-2012 Kings Prospects Scoring, Adjusted

What’s the best way to looking at Kings prospects scoring numbers? Since you already have 59 different places to go for traditional team stats, I decided to do something different. (Actually, I did this at the beginning of the year at Jewels from of the Crown, but now that everyone’s regular seasons are over, it’s time to post the final numbers.)A few years back, behindthenet calculated conversion multipliers to be used to “translate” scoring stats from one league into equivalent NHL numbers. The idea being, for example, that one goal in NCAA is the rough equivalent, in terms of difficulty, of 0.41 goals in the NHL. Obviously, there’s lots of room to disagree with the specific numbers, but I’m willing to play along. Here are the numbers behindthenet came up with:

League Translations: how do other leagues stack up against the NHL? (Behind the Net)

  • Russian Elite League 0.83
  • Swedish Elite League 0.78
  • Czech Republic League 0.74
  • Finland SM-Liiga 0.54
  • Deutsche Eishockey League 0.52 [...]
  • AHL 0.44 [...]
  • Switzerland National League 0.44
  • NCAA 0.41
  • Canadian Major Junior 0.30

Some other things about the chart. It’s fully sortable (click on the columns). The columns show games-played, goals, assists, points, points-per-game, the conversion multiplier, and the NHL-equivalent points-per-game. Also note that if a player played for two teams as a member of the Kings organization (e.g. Voynov for the Monarchs and the Kings, Andreoff in the OHL and the AHL), then the player has a separate line (row) for each team. If you want to compare the numbers of such players, sort by name.

    Wow what happened to Kitsyn?  Get him back over here where he was thriving!

    • okto

      i dont think hes getting toi

    whoa cool. thanks for posting this. 

    Brian O’neill had 2 points in 12 games with the Monarchs so his numbers prolly drop a little. Also he’s 23 years old and listed at 5’9, 170. 

    The Monarchs are full of little guys.

     Voynov and King are really interesting, aren’t they? Voynov’s Manchester numbers indicate .117 ppg in the NHL and then when he gets there he actually hits .37 ppg. King’s Manchester numbers indicate a mere .255 ppg, but with the Kings he actually got .519.

    Maybe these multipliers aren’t quite as accurate as the guys at behindthenet would like us to believe! Not that I think Justin Azevedo would come to the Kings and average .7 ppg. I am excited to see how Toffoli and Weal do when they’re in Kings uniforms though!

      the best way to look at these numbers isn’t really to try and approximate what their point production will be at the NHL level, rather it equalizes the value of points across all levels so that you can compare prospect numbers against each other. For example one would normally look at Toffoli’s 100 pts and go “wow, what a stud” and then look at Holoway’s 49 and go “hmrph whatever”. But in actuality Holloway’s point total is more impressive given his quality of competition.

    bud the stud

    Deutsche Eishockey League?  You mean the Hamburg Freezers?  So the team lost to the Kings 5-4 actually won by an adjusted 7-5.

    And, it sure seemed like Doughty missed more then 5 games.
