Here are the NHL man games lost totals per team as of the end of the regular season on April 7, 2012. These figures are based on data officially reported by the individual teams in their ‘Game Notes’ on game days. Often the 30 teams report solely based on players registered on their official injured reserve list, and may or may not include 1) games missed by players due to illness or minor injury in which they are a game-day scratch from the lineup 2) games missed by players suspended by the league or the team.
There are many inconsistencies in the injury reporting by the different teams. There is no regulation by the league in this regard and all 30 teams report the numbers in any manner they wish. This is why we feel our analysis gives a clearer view of the true injury status of teams versus other teams. For our final 2013 NHL season analysis see this post.
