Did you know that Andrei Markov is a pretty durable player?
Andrei Markov lead the Montreal Canadiens in minutes played and average time on ice last season.
In 2008-2009 Andrei Markov finished the season ranked 20th in the league in total minutes on ice with 1920 minutes and 51 seconds.
If you take it to the average Markov played 24 minutes and 37 seconds each game and finished 18th in average ice time played.
An average of 28.2 shifts per game.
Oddly enough, the player with the highest “time on ice” rating last year was Bryan Allen for the Florida Panthers. Even though he only played 2 games.
Think he’ll log as many minutes this season?
I think he’ll average about the same.
