Our expected goals added metric allows us to compare two stat lines, even if the players play different positions. The idea is to normalize different plays to get to a standard view of how many equivalent goals a player generated.
This table shows the cumulative season totals for the top 100 players to give a view of who is having the most productive season. We have included the primary role for each player so you can get a sense for how the role they play on their team. The primary role is calculated based on the percentage of a player’s value that comes from faceoffs vs offensive plays vs defensive plays. I have also put together a detailed post to explain how this classification works.
