Canadiens and Rangers: Percentage of Total Events Spent Defending in the Defensive-zone

By Kicks @Chrisboucher73
This post will focus on how much "time" each Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers player has spent defending in the defensive-zone. Percentage of events spent defending is calculated by dividing the number of events each player engages-in while attempting to remove puck-possession from the opposition in the defensive-zone (blocked shots, blocked passes, stick-checks, body-checks) by the total amount of puck-possession events (offensive and defensive / all 3 zones).
A list of all the events I track can be found here.
A higher-percentage indicates that the player has spent more time defending in the defensive-zone. Expressed differently, the higher the percentage, the more time the opposition has spent with possession in the each team's zone.
