2019-2020 NHL SEASON
LAST UPDATED: 2020-01-02
Defensive linemate stats capture the combined stats of defensive pairs. The stats presented below are aggregated from Even Strength, 5 on 5 (5v5) play, and are split by team category: away and home. All stats are presented as differentials, i.e., Stats FOR - Stats AGAINST, except for Time on Ice (TOI), relative Time on Ice (relTOI), Face off win percentage (FO), Shots On Goal divided by Shots At Goal (SHOAG), and Weighted SHOAG (wSHOAG). FOR stats are aggregated for a given defensive pair if and only if a player of the defensive pair completed a recorded event-type. These are shots, goals, hits, missed shots, penalties, blocked shots, and derived stats. Similarly, AGAINST stats are aggregated for a given defensive pair if and only if a player of the opposing team’s defensive pair completed a recorded event-type.
Because the NHL play-by-play files do not record the player responsible for icing of offside events, these actions are omitted from the offensive trio and defensive pairing stats. They are available for even strength stats of 5-man lines, Power Play Units, and Penalty Kill Units

Away Even Strength (5v5):
Table 1. Even Strength (5v5) linemate stats for defensive duos on away ice. rank = line ranking, calculated as a function of EG_S, Crsi, Gv, and Tk. TOI = Time on Ice (seconds); relTOI = % Time on Ice of given defensive pair relative to total TOI of all defensive pairs on their respective team; S = Shots; G = Goals; A = Assists; Ms = Missed Shots; Bl = Blocked Shots; Gv = Giveaways; Tk = Takeaways; H = Hits; P = Penalties; I = Icing; O = Offside; EG_S = Expected Goals of shots on net; EG_Ms = Expected Goals of Missed Shots; EG_Bl = Expected Goals of Blocked Shots; Crsi = Corsi; Fnwk = Fenwick; Tngo = Tango; FO = Faceoff Win Percent, SHOAG = Shots on net FOR divided by Corsi FOR; wSHOAG = Weighted SHOAG (weighted by Expected Goals of shots on net FOR, goals FOR, missed shots FOR, and blocked shots FOR). Line combinations accounting for less than 5% of their repective team’s total TOI (relTOI<0.05) are omitted.
