Final Numbers Second Round: Former NCAA Hockey Players

Here is the list of NHL hockey players that are currently playing in the second round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs that have played college hockey (Division I & III).

The players are listed by their NHL team. These are players that have played in at least “one” Stanley Cup Playoff game during in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. I have also listed their point totals as well.

This list doesn’t include players from teams that have been eliminated. The list doesn’t include players that are currently injured, or on their teams roster, but haven’t played in the Stanley Cup Playoff games yet.  I will update the list as much as I can.

Final points lead after the second round

The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is in the books. Former Wisconsin Badgers and current San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski (4g-8a—12pts) has retained his lead as the points leader, but his team was eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the defending Stanley Cup Champions, so there will be a new points leaders in the next round.

Former Catamount’s and current Chicago Blackhawk forward Patrick Sharp (7g-4a—11pts) is alone in second place.

Here’s how the rest of the top six places for former college hockey players; currently playing in the Stanley Cup playoffs shakes out.

In third place, there is a four way tie. The Pittsburgh Penguins have a pair of former college hockey players, former Gopher defenseman Paul Martin (2g-7a—9pts) is tied with his teammate former Ferris State Bulldog forward Chris Kunitz (4g-5a—9pts). Also, Ottawa Senators and former Wisconsin Badgers forward Kyle Turris (6g-3a—9pts) is “currently” tied for third place along with former Michigan State Spartan and current Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith (1g-8a—9pts). Turris’ spot in the top three is temporary, because his season is over; the Senators were eliminated by the top seeded Pittsburgh Penguins this past week four games to one.

Badgers king in this year’s 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Wisconsin Badgers are well represented in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs; if my math is correct they have six players that are still currently playing in the second round of the SCP.
