If there is 1 thing that needs to be considered when looking at AHL stats, it's the amount that the players team scores, how good is their PP, and just as importantly, who their ES linemates are.

Sometimes teams will have an incredibly dominant line like the Mancari-Kennedy-Gerbe line. Chances are that Kennedy and Gerbe wouldn't be scoring the way that they are without Mancari on their line and viceversa. This is similar to Martin St. Pierre starting off at a below 1PPG pace after having a superb season ending 2nd in AHL scoring last year with 88 points in 69 games. Or Teddy Purcell finishing 3rd last year with 83 points in 67 games and now starting the year at a 0.50PPG clip in his first 10 games. However, when you look at Mancari's accomplishments, they are nothing short of outstanding.

For any AHL player to have factored into over 30% of his teams scoring it is a solid contribution to say the least. But over 52% of his teams scoring? That is unbelievable! I don't know much about the guy, and I didn't really see anything special in the Falcons first game against Portland this season, but the guy is a point scoring machine at this level. He's on pace for 160 points this season in the AHL if he can keep his staggering 2PPG clip going for the whole 80 game season.
