I wouldn't expect anything in the NHL to reasonably follow a bell curve - since for anything you're measuring a hockey ability by, the sample set of National Hockey League players represents the far right end of a bell curve.
For instance, suppose that the NHL-average save percentage is 91%. There's a hell of a lot more people out there who could post save percentages four standard deviations beneath that than there are who could post save percentages four standard deviations above that.
