With every team in the American Hockey League having played at least 10 games into the 76 game season; it’s fair to look at the projections of points for the top 20 players through Monday, November 11th, 2013.
A couple of notes of importance:
- Last season was a lock-out season in the National Hockey League which spread out scoring through out some players who would not have played in the AHL.
- The Rockford IceHogs Brandon Pirri led the league in 2012-13 with 75 pts (22+53) through 76 games.
- The last season any player hit 100+ points was in the 2009-10 season as the Hershey Bears Keith Aucoin scored 106 pts (35+71) in 72 games & his teammate Alexandre Giroux scored 103 pts (50+53) in 69 games played.
- At this point, 7 players are projected to hit over 100 pts; Travis Morin (Stars), Nikita Kucherov (Crunch), Vladislav Namestnikov (Crunch), T.J. Brennan (Marlies), Gustav Nyquist (Griffins), Spencer Abbott (Marlies) & Ryan Strome (Soundtigers).
