Notinhalloffame NHL Cup Standings Update (130)

Notinhalloffame NHL Cup Standings Update (130)
02 Mar
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 130 Notinhalloffame Cup Points:

1. Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers.  132 Cup Points:  62 Games, 52 G, 66 A, 118 P, +11, 14.0 PS.  (#1 on last update)

What more can we say about McDavid’s 2022/23 Season.  He is running away with every major statistical category, and has a commanding lead in Cup Points.  Last year’s Notinhalloffame NHL Cup winner is extending his lead and he is currently the league-leader in Goals (52), Assists (66), Points (118) and Point Shares (11.9).  The Hart, Pearson, Richard and Art Ross are his to lose.  

2. Mikko Rantanen, Colorado Avalanche. 97 Cup Points:  59 Games, 41 G, 31 A, 72 P, +7, 8.9 PS. (#4 on last update)

Rantanen climbs back up to the runner-up spot, but the gap between #1 and #2 has never been larger.   He is also third in Goals (34) and fifth in Points (66).  

3. (TIE) David Pastrnak, Boston Bruins. 96 Cup Points:  60 Games, 42 G, 38 A, 80 P, +27, 10.6 PS. (#2 on last update)

Pastrnak drops a spot, but is still having one of his best years to date.  He currently is leading the NHL in Shots (285), is second in Goals (42) and fourth in Points (80).

3. (TIE) Nathan MacKinnon, Colorado Avalanche, 96 Cup Points:  48 Games, 24 G, 49 A, 73 P, +23, 8.4 PS.  (#5 on last update)

MacKinnon is playing phenomenal hockey, and is the Avs are now the first team (taking over from Boston) to rank two players on a descending list.  He is second in Points per Game (1.05).

5. Jack Hughes, New Jersey Devils.  92 Cup Points, 56 Games, 36 G, 38 A, 74 P, +13, 9.1 PS. (#3 on last update)

Hughes fell two spots to number #5, but the two-time All-Star is sixth in Goals (36), tenth in Points (74), and is the offensive leader of what has been a surprisingly good New Jersey squad. 

6. Linus Ullmark, Boston Bruins.  91 Cup Points:  38 Games, 31-4-1, 1.88 GAA, .938 Save Percentage, 10.2 PS.  (#5 on last update)

Ullmark is the odds-on favorite for the Vezina and is currently the league leader in Wins, GAA and Save Percentage.

7. Brayden Point, Tampa Bay Lightning.  88 Cup Points:  60 Games, 37 G, 33 A, 70 P, +3, 8.2 PS. (#9 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 fifth in Goals (37).

8. Brady Tkachuk, Ottawa Senators, 86 Cup Points:  60 Games, 26 G, 37 A, 63 P, -6, 7.0 PS.  (#8 on last update)

The Senators continue to load up for the playoffs, despite being currently out of a spot.  Tkachuk’s play is the main reason they are going for it, and he is only four Points away from matching last year’s total.

9. Jake Oettinger, Dallas Stars.  85 Cup Points:  46 Games, 25-8-10, 2.29 GAA, .923 Save Percentage, 9.8 PS.  (#9 on last update)

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

10. Kirill Kaprizov, Minnesota Wild, 84 Cup Points:  61 Games, 37 G, 34 A, 71 P, +3, 8.8 PS.  (Not on last update)

The Russian star returns to the top ten and is fifth in Goals (37)

Florida’s Matthew Tkachuk, fell off the top ten.

Our next update will occur when the first player breaks 140 Cup Points.
