How does MSU rank?

Monday is stat day for me, the day I compile college hockey standings and MSU and WCHA scoring and goalie stats for The Free Press' print edition. Just thought I'd delve a little deeper today, though and show where the Mavericks rank in the WCHA in various team categories eight games into the season (St. Cloud State is the only team to play just six conference games).

These are based on conference games only (thanks to College Hockey Stats).

• Scoring offense: 2.00 goals per game - tied for ninth (1. CC and UMD, 3.62)
• Scoring defense: 3.50 goals per game - eighth (1. UND, 1.62)
• Penalty minutes: 19.6 PIM per game - sixth lowest (1. CC, 15.8; UAA highest at 24.1)
• Power play: 15.4 percent - sixth (1. CC, 33.3)
• Penalty kill: 74.5 percent - ninth (1. UND, 91.1)
• Combined special teams: 50.0 percent - fifth (1. UND 58.2)
