August Man of the Day Stats

Who doesn’t love stats?

In August, again we picked 31 Men of the Day…well, actually, 30 men and 1 woman. Of those 31, we chose

centers: 9 (including Claude Giroux and TJ Oshie, who play RW/C)
left-wingers: 3
right-wingers: 7 (including Giroux and Oshie, who play RW/C)
defensemen: 7
goaltenders: 8

captains: 2
alternates: 4

We chose a LOT of Canadians. This is partly attributed to us doing a four-parter of all four Staal brothers.
Canada: 18
USA: 4
Sweden: 4
Czech Republic: 3
Finland: 2

Once again, for birth year we chose a lot of guys who are basically my age peers, including 4 fellow 1988 babies.
1972: 1

1986: 2
1987: 3
1988: 4
1989: 1

March: 3
April: 1
May: 1
June: 1
July: 2
