BY THE NUMBERS: Ruslan Salei
By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2010-11 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on defenseman Ruslan Salei.


Games played this season, the most in five years and fifth most in his 14 NHL seasons. It was a far better season following a back injury that sidelined him for much of the 2009-10 campaign when he only played in 14 games with the Colorado Avalanche.


Career milestone game played on Feb. 22 in a 4-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks at Joe Louis Arena. In that game he delivered three hits and was a minus-1 in 15:46 of ice-time.


Career goal scored on Feb. 9 in a 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena. He was his first goal as a member of the Red Wings. The goal at 16:02 of the third period came against goalie Pekka Rinne, with assists to Henrik Zetterberg and Danny Cleary.


Career point reached when he earned an assist on Henrik Zetterberg’s third-period goal, which helped the Wings defeat the Vancouver Canucks, 5-4, in overtime on Dec. 22 at Joe Louis Arena.


The number of hits he had during the regular-season, good for fifth on the team behind Darren Helm (128), Brad Stuart (131), Johan Franzen (145) and Justin Abdelkader (188).


The 14 year veteran finished the season with an even rating, the only other Wing to do so was rookie Tomas Tatar. Salei was a plus-6 in 11 playoff games. The Wings had 10 players register plus-ratings in the regular-season, while 13 had minus-ratings.
