Pittsburgh Penguins' Star Erik Karlsson has been slightly disappointing on the stat sheet compared to his standards in his winning Norris campaign last year, but EK has one stat he's leading at.

Karlsson Top 5 Hardest Shots



Erik Karlsson was ranked in the top 5 for the hardest shots recorded this season so far. EK, most known for his accuracy, is quite surprising. The Swede has 32 points this season in his first year as a Penguin.

Last year he got 101 with the struggling San Jose Sharks. All though he has not panned out since the blockbuster trade this summer. There's still time for him to turn things around in the most crucial times for the Penguins.
