Right now, Penner is a different kind of all by himself, right at the very top of the NHL when it comes to point production at even strength.
Heading into Friday night’s games, according to Behind the Net, Penner is averaging 4.86 points for every 60 minutes of even strength play, while Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals is at 4.77 points per 60 minutes of play, good for second place.
The next most productive scorers are Brad Richards, wonder kid Ryan O’Reilly, Marian Gaborik and Gilbert Brule.
What does this tell us, other than Penner is doing a great imitation of Phil Esposito right now?
