Number That May Only Interest Me:  .677

.677

In J.F. Jacques first full season in the AHL, he scored 24 goals and added 20 assists in 65 games for a points per game average of .667. In Teemu Hartikainen's first full season in the AHL, he's scored 17 goals and added 25 assists in 66 games for a points per game average of .636.

That season created much excitement in Oilerland because Jacques is a big man who can move and big men who can score are coveted like few other assets in the NHL.  Jacques has totaled 17 points in 151 NHL games since being promoted and his production in the AHL seems like it was a mirage, though it should have been expected.  Jacques' 2005-06 season was the high point of his NHLE scoring rates for his entire career, including Major Junior and should have set off some warning bells.

Hartikainen, on the other hand, has had success in two professional leagues and is about to embark on his career in another.  His NHLE shows he's consistently produced between 10 and 15 goals in his first three years and if he can avoid the injury bug that has infested this team, should be able to do so in the NHL.
