Forensics – Drew Stafford – After getting through high-school math I never thought I would have to deal with charts, graphs, and percentages again. Then along came Frozen Pool and that all changed.

Drew Stafford had a breakthrough season last year by scoring 31 goals and 52 points, while finishing at plus-13 in just 62 games. If you project that out for a full 82 games that turns into a 69 point campaign.
