While I write about the top six power play leaders in ice time each week, there are some players who are very productive in limited time. Now some players like James Neal, Mark Giordano and Jeff Skinner would be on this list if they hadn’t been hurt, there are still a few who are doing quite well through the first third of the season.

Don’t forget, for everything NHL, check out Rotoworld's Player News, and follow @Rotoworld_ HK and @mfinewaxhockey on Twitter.

 

The top ten are:
