“Out of this world” – Josi dominates the NHL and scores wonderfully for the 10th time in a row
Roman Josi has in the night on today NHL dotted. In the meantime we have gotten used to reports like this, as it is already the 10th game in a row in which the Swiss made it onto the scorer list. The defender prepared the 4: 4 against Anaheim exemplary.
Most recently, Josi played a game without a scoring point against Dallas on December 15. Since then he has played the following games:
- Dec 17 vs. NY Rangers: 2 goals, 1 assist
- Dec 18 vs. NY Islanders: 1 goal
- Dec 20 vs. Ottawa Senators: 1 goal
- Dec 22 vs. Boston Bruins: 2 goals
- Dec 24 vs. Arizona Coyotes: 1 goal, 1 assist
- Dec 28 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins: 1 assist
- Dec 29 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins: 3 assists
- Jan. 1 vs. Dallas Stars: 2 assists
- Jan 5 vs. LA Kings: 2 assists
- Jan 6 vs. Anaheim Ducks: 1 assist
This gives the Swiss a whopping 18 scorer points (7 goals and 11 assists) in the last 10 games. This season he has 44 points in 41 games, more than one point per game. Roman Josi had his most productive season so far in 2015/16 with a total of 61 points. If he pulls through his current pace, he scores 88 points at the end of the season.
This is how the Swiss do in the NHL:
His current series of 10 games with at least one point always puts the Swiss in an elite circle. Since 1999/2000, only 6 other defenders have always managed to score over such a period. The record is held by Shayne Gostisbehere, who was successful in 15 games in a row in the 2015/16 season.
With his accomplishments, Josi has also seriously started the Norris Trophy, the award for the best defender of the season. His biggest competitor for the trophy is John Carlson. The Washington Capitals defender already has 52 points after 43 games. Defensively, he doesn’t play as consistently as Roman Josi, but he’s a bit more productive on the offensive.
The most productive defenders of the NHL:
At Nashville they are at least sure that the Swiss is out of this world and would like to order 100 more joses.
Until the All-Star-Game on January 25th, in which Roman Josi is there for the third time, 6 games are still on the program for the Predators – skort up to then the Swiss, he travels as a record holder of modern times to the prestigious encounter of the best NHL players. The next opponents in the night of Wednesday are the Boston Bruins for Roman Josi.
