Nice article on Scott Parse

Parse is spending the summer in Los Angeles working out. He’s recovered from his latest surgery to clean up some wear and tear on his hip, and is working to build up the muscles in the area. He said the sockets in both hips aren’t formed well, which has worn down the cartilage.

2011-2012 Kings Prospects Scoring, Adjusted

Since you already have 59 different places to go for traditional team stats, I decided to do something different. 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:
