Bergeron and the Faceoff "Record"

This is one of those things that will get no attention and a lot of people won't care, but I think it would be a cool thing to see him do.

I put "Record" in quotation marks because I can only find statistics that go back to the 1997/98 season, and it's a shortened season this year. That being said, Bergeron has an outside shot at breaking the record this year. Here's how things look:

Bergeron has taken 680 faceoffs this year and is on pace for 1020 by year's end. Bergeron sits with 424 faceoffs won for a 62.35% winning percentage. Considering everyone going back to 1997/98, the only players that recorded above that winning percentage with over 1,000 faceoffs taken are:

PlayerSeasonFaceoffs TakenFaceoffs WonFaceoff %
Joe Nieuwendyk1998/99117074063.25%
Yannik Perreault2002/03115672762.89%
Yannik Perreault2000/01105566162.65%

Assuming Bergeron averages the same # of faceoffs per game that he has up to this point, this is what he has to do to break the record:

To overtake 3rd place, Bergeron would have to finish the year at 63.53% (216/340)

To overtake 2nd place, Bergeron would have to finish the year at 64.12% (218/340)

To overtake 1st place, Bergeron would have to finish the year at 65.29% (222/340)


Of course, he's not going to finish with exactly that number of faceoffs, but it gives you a rough idea of what he needs to do.

So, where do you think he'll end up?

For reference, other notable faceoff percentage leaders (ie. people who have finished with a higher winning percentage on faceoffs than where Bergeron's at) that have not taken 1,000 draws are Perreault in 2003/04 (861 draws, 65.16%), and Perreault in 2006/07 (806 draws, 62.78%).
