2013 Stats: 86.1%, 4th out of 30. Only Wilkes-Barre, Rochester, and Charlotte finished higher. Five players had one shorthanded goal; Patrick Maroon, Peter Holland, Chris Wagner, Emerson Etem, Troy Bodie.
Projected First Unit: Wagner - Joseph Cramarossa up front and Mat Clark - Alex Grant in the back. If we get Etem back I'd put him in instead of Cramarossa.
Last Person I want on the Ice during PK: I don't want to target Zack Stortini again so who ever ends up being a turnover machine through the season, it will be that guy!
Changes from Last Year: This year we definitely won't have Rod Pelley on the penalty kill and he was a big face off winner and killer. Some of the other losses are Nate Guenin, John Mitchell, and Emerson Etem if/when he makes the Ducks. Finishing fourth out of 30 teams doesn't leave a ton of room for improvement but I would like to see another top 10 finish for this unit.
