Report: Andersen leads the league in a not so shocking statistical category

Just another reason why Freddie is one of the best goalies in the NHL this year.

Freddie Andersen is having a season for the ages. The Toronto Maple Leafs netminder has been relied upon countless times this season to keep the team afloat in games where the defense wasn't tight, and the offense wasn't clicking.

Despite a few glaring errors - which are normal for any human being - he's been lights out almost every single night, winning NHL star honours on multiple occasions this season.

He sits 3rd in the NHL in wins by a goalie, with 21.

One stat that he leads the entire NHL in, is the amount of shots he has faced, with 1,160 to date. That's an astonishing 34 shots per game allowed. This doesn't necessarily come as a surprise to anyone as the Leafs have regularly allowed far too many shots, something head coach Mike Babcock has been trying all season to fix.
