By now, everyone has heard the news that New York Islanders defenceman and St. Malo, Manitoba native Travis Hamonic has requested a trade out of Brooklyn. Further to that, Hamonic has stated that his preference would be a Western Canadian team. Hamonic has stated that for personal reasons, he would prefer to be dealt to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Winnipeg Jets are on the penalty kill, a lot.
Since the franchise move to Winnipeg, the team has been called for 141 more penalties than they have drawn. This is the second worst differential in the entire NHL, just 20 less than the Boston Bruins and 40 more than any other team. Over the last two seasons the Jets have the worst penalty differential.
A lot of time on the penalty kill means a lot of minutes for their top killers. Mark Stuart sits at 20th in the league for short handed minutes since Jets' inaugural season.
So how has Stuart performed over that time?

So, we usually start these game recaps with some analysis of the game and a brief recap of what happened.
However, for this game, I feel like it's appropriate to start out with a graph.

The Winnipeg Jets have their starter Ondrej Pavelec on Injury Reserve at least until January. Until then, the Jets will be rolling with a tandem of Michael Hutchinson and Connor Hellebuyck.
There are some concerned with the loss of Pavelec. Jets Nation's own Angelo Montilla looked at five possible trade targets for the Jets. After all, losing a starter for most teams could be the kiss of death when it comes to making the playoffs.
Let's see why this is not the case with the Jets.
