I've always thought of Ladd as a bit of a guy with stone hands. He seems to wiff on the puck quite a bit, especially when he has an open net.
He shot 10.6% last year and has a career shooting % of 11.5%.

Funny thing is that Ladd has missed the net a ton this year. Going into last night he had missed the net 22 times and only had 34 shots on goal. That means he missed the net on 39.3% of his shot attempts. That is insanely high and was the worst among Jets forwards.

These numbers suggest his shooting percentage will likely drop. The missed shots thing appears to be an anomaly too. Last year ladd only missed the net on 24.5% of his shots which was the best % among the Jets regular forwards.

I broke down individual missed shots stuff here yesterday:
