Ramblings: Remaining RFAs, Power-Play Efficiency (Sep 11)

Ian Gooding


The Kings took care of some business on Saturday, signing Mikey Anderson to a one-year contract worth $1 million. Anderson recorded eight points in 57 games for Los Angeles last season. That means eight RFAs that played games last season remain unsigned, according to Chris Johnston.

According to Cap Friendly, those RFAs include the following players: Rasmus Sandin, Barrett Hayton, Ryan McLeod, Sean Durzi, Adam Ruzicka, Jason Robertson, Nicolas Hague, and Alex Formenton. Of course, the most notable one to fantasy teams is Robertson. This is something to keep an eye on with training camps set to start less than two weeks from now.

The Top 100 Roto Rankings will be updated for September later this week. In the meantime, feel free to leave any feedback on the rankings, particularly if you've participated in any drafts. If not, send me any comments anyway and I'll take them into account as I update the rankings.

For my Ramblings this weekend, the theme is power-play points. Yesterday I took inspiration from a Twitter post to examine power-play shots on goal. Today I'm heading back to Frozen Tools to check for power-play performers by efficiency. This might help to find players who might be due for an uptick in power-play time, as well as players who might just be clinging on to first-unit power-play time.

To help me find this data on power-play performance, I'm using categories power-play points, power-play time on ice, and power-play points per 60 minutes.
