these are 5 on 5 statistics. you can look them up for other situations if you want.

and you're outlining why the shorthanded situation is a horrible way to determine if a player is "good defensively." you can be very good as a forward manning your zone of the ice effectively and not be a very good even strength player defensively.

it should be noted that none of this is to suggest that Nodl won't turn out to be a very good defensive player, he just hasn't shown it yet at all.
