Here are the NHL man games lost totals per team, sorted by total man games lost (in decreasing order) as of April 7, 2013 9:00am. 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 2) games missed by players suspended by the league or the team. Some teams don’t regularly report on man games lost for the season (at this point only San Jose) or during prolonged periods, and they are indicated in the table. There is a more accurate (and better) way to truly report on injuries, without relying on the numbers being skewed by the teams’ reporting methods. We’re working on it.
MGL = Man Games Lost
GP = Games Played
MGL/GP = average number of Man Games Lost per Game Played
DNR = team Did Not Report as of last game on/prior to date of analysis
