By The Numbers: Jonathan Ericsson

By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2013-14 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 Jonathan Ericsson.


Despite missing 34 games due to injuries, he posted the second-most, single-season shots on goal in his Red Wings’ career. He registered four SOG twice during the season – at Toronto (Dec. 21) and vs. Colorado (Mar. 6).


Number of assists he had for the third straight season, which is two fewer than his career-best established during the 2010-11 NHL campaign. He registered two assists each against Carolina and the New York Islanders.


Finished second among Red Wings’ defensemen in plus/minus rating. Only Danny DeKeyser (plus-10) had a higher rating than Ericsson in 2013-14. It was the fourth straight season that he finished on the plus side. He was a combined minus-19 for his first three NHL seasons.


Ranked second among team defensemen in hits, averaging 1.89 hits per game last season. He led team’s blue-liners with 67 hits during lockout-shortened season in 2013. His single game high was four hits at COL (Oct. 17), vs. NSH (Nov. 19), at OTT (Dec. 1), at TOR (Dec. 21) and vs. CHI (Jan. 22).


The most blocked shots he had since the 2009-10 season when he stopped 49 shots. Since then he registered 37, 43, and 40 blocked shots leading up to last season. His season high was four in the Red Wings’ 5-4 shootout loss at NYI on Nov. 16.


Straight games from Nov. 24 to Dec. 14 that he finished with either a plus or even rating, helping the Red Wings post a 5-3-2 record. In the 16 regular-season games that he finished on the plus side, Detroit compiled a 15-0-1 record.
