The Boston Bruins’ David Pastrnak is a force to be reckoned with on the ice, displaying an incredible knack for shooting the puck that leaves his competitors far behind. This season, Pastrnak has taken a jaw-dropping 706 shot attempts, a number that no other player in the league has even come close to reaching. The gap between Pastrnak and the second-place player is so substantial that it is equivalent to the distance between second place and the player ranked 22nd in shot attempts.
When it comes to shots on goal, Pastrnak also leads the league with an impressive 396 shots on target. Trailing behind him is Nathan MacKinnon, who occupies the second spot with 350 shots on goal. These statistics highlight Pastrnak’s relentless shooting habits.
In 80 games played this season, Pastrnak has accumulated 60 goals and 49 assists, amounting to a total of 109 points. His relentless shooting not only contributes to his personal success but also provides the Bruins with a dynamic offensive weapon that has helped propel the team in this historic season.
The Bruins recently signed Pastrnak to an 8 year contract with an AAV of $11.25M per season, and I’m sure with the season he is having the organization and fans are thrilled to have him for at least 8 more years, even at that price if his production continues to be this amazing.
