A look at the stats of NHL's top unrestricted free agents

The on-ice numbers are close at the top of the charts for unrestricted free agents.

Steven Stamkos has scored .90 points per game during the three-season run from 2013-14 to 2015-16, just .02 more than Kyle Okposo. They are both well ahead of third-place Jiri Hudler (.78).

On defense, Brian Campbell and Kris Russell have averaged .39 points per game during the last three seasons, just ahead of Jason Demers, who recorded .38 despite four fewer minutes of ice time.

Among goaltenders, the Sabres' Chad Johnson (.915 save percentage) has the edge on Anton Khudobin (.914).

Here are the raw numbers. A story examining what they may mean will be published later.
