Notinhalloffame NHL Cup Standings Update (100)

Notinhalloffame NHL Cup Standings Update (100)
12 Feb
Not in Hall of Fame

If you are a regular visitor at, you know that we created the Notinhalloffame NHL Cup, where in every regular season game, we award points (5-4-3-2-1) to the top five performers.  This is the second year that we have done this, and Edmonton’s Connor McDavid won the first one.

To keep everyone regularly in the loop this time, we have decided to give regular updates, starting at when the first player cracked 40 Points, and tell all of you the top ten.  We will this going forward with every update as the first player breaches the elevated ten-point threshold afterward.

Here is the current top ten, based on the first player to breach 100 Notinhalloffame Cup Points:

1. Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers.  104 Cup Points:  53 Games, 42 G, 55 A, 97 P, +7, 11.4 PS.  (#1 on last update)

There are a lot of stories at the near-halfway mark of the 2022/23 NHL Season, with one of the top ones being Connor McDavid running away with every major statistical category.  Last year’s Notinhalloffame NHL Cup winner is extending his lead and he is currently the league-leader in Goals (42), Assists (55), Points (97) and Point Shares (11.4).  The Hart is his to lose.  

2. Jack Hughes, New Jersey Devils.  90 Cup Points, 50 Games, 35 G, 32 A, 67 P, +15, 8.7 PS. (#6 on last update)

Hughes rockets from #6 to #2, and has scored 11 Points in his last five Games.  The two-time All-Star in third in Goals (35) and ninth in Points (67) and Point Shares (8.7).

3. David Pastrnak, Boston Bruins. 87 Cup Points:  52 Games, 38 G, 34 A, 72 P, +25, 9.7 PS. (#2 on last update)

The Bruins are one of the NHL’s top teams and Pastrnak is their top scorer.  He currently is leading the NHL in Shots (248), is second in Goals (38) and fifth in Points (72).

4. Mikko Rantanen, Colorado Avalanche. 83 Cup Points:  51 Games, 34 G, 29 A, 63 P, +4, 7.6 PS. (#3 on last update)

Rantanen drops a spot, and is also fifth in Goals (34).

5 (Tie). Matthew Tkachuk, Florida Panthers, 80 Cup Points:  52 Games, 27 G, 46 A, 73 P, +16, 8.2 PS.  (#9 on last update)

Tkachuk has been on fire and proving Florida right in their pursuit of the power forward.  He is currently fifth in Assists (46) and third in Points (73).

5 (Tie). Brayden Point, Tampa Bay Lightning.  80 Cup Points:  52 Games, 32 G, 27 A, 59 P, +8, 7.2 PS. (#5 on last update)

Point is having a good year, and is a point-per-game player, there are still quite a few players with higher point tallies than the Tampa Center.  Saying that, Point has been the most clutch player for the Lightning, and a reason we love this process!  He is currently eighth in Goals (32).

7. Jake Oettinger, Dallas Stars.  76 Cup Points:  40 Games, 23-7-7, 2.22 GAA, .926 Save Percentage, 8.8 PS.  (#10 on last update)

In his third season, Oettinger is playing the best hockey of his life and is second in the NHL in GAA and Save Percentage.

8. Elias Pettersson, Vancouver Canucks.  73 Cup Points:  51 Games, 25 G, 39 A, 64 P, +5, 6.7 PS.  (not on last update)

The Canucks have been a disappointment, but Pettersson has emerged as a bright spot as their best player.  The fifth-year player and former Calder winner is currently tenth in Points.

9. Jason Robertson, Dallas Stars.  72 Cup Points:  54 Games, 33 G, 36 A, 69 P, +26, 9.4 PS. (#5 on last update)

Robertson is on pace to shatter last season’s 41-38-79 output, and the fourth-year player is now the undeniable top dog of the Stars lineup.  He recently went to his first All-Star Game.

10. Leon Draisaitl, Edmonton Oilers, 71 Cup Points:  51 Games, 29 G, 49 A, 78 P, +3, 8.3 PS.  (#8 on last update)

The 2020 Hart Trophy winner gives the Oilers two players in the upper-tier and is currently fourth in Assists and second in Points behind his teammate, Connor McDavid.

Toronto’s Auston Matthews and Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck fell off the top ten.

Our next update will occur when the first player breaks 110 Cup Points.
