edit: Well that was quick. Bookmarks for the win. Engqvist at 53%, Ottosson at 58%. Link.

edit 2: It should also be noted that he had a pretty high shooting percentage, but didn't really take a lot of shots; patrolled the middle of the ice and distributed the puck for the most part? I think he should be encouraged to shoot more as well, as part of his development. Maybe he already has, resulting in this year's 20 goal production.
Seems like it, went from 1.9 shots/game to 2.4 shots/game last season in the AHL.
