Reasons To Be Cheerful: Jordan Eberle

The second instalment in a series of infinite number.


While the Oilers have been struggling to post in the win column as of late, Eberle’s numbers are something to talk about.

15-21-36 in 34 GP, 6 PIM

If you’d like to put a stat in your pocket to take home, you have a choice.  You could make it 1.06 points per game so far this season.  You also have your choice of 6 power play goals so far.  Perhaps you’re a big fan of the 3 game winning goals?

Jordan Eberle is kind of a big deal.

As of this very moment in time, Eberle leads the Oilers in points (36), is tied with Patrick Sharp and Thomas Vanek in overall scoring (and is one ahead of some guy named Teemu Selanne), and is currently projected to score over 70 points on the season.

Not bad for a second year guy out of Regina.


J0rdan Eberle is just 21 years of age, and there’s no reason to not believe he won’t get better with age.  Eberle is hitting the net with some ridiculous accuracy – his shooting percentage is 18.3%, which averages out to one goal in less than six shots.  When you think about all the games where Edmonton has just sixteen, twenty, or twenty-two shots, that’s an unreal shooting percentage.  While Eberle’s consistency is off the charts right now, the manner in which he’s scoring is equally as impressive.  Surely you remember his first NHL goal, and you probably remember his effort for Team Canada in the 2009 World Juniors.  Goals like this are the norm for Jordan Eberle.

That never gets old.

While the defence is a constant work in progress, Eberle helps lead a young core of forwards into tomorrow.  You’re likely sick of talking about the future, I know.  Look at Jordan Eberle’s production today.  Now add three, four more years of experience.  Think he’s peaked?  Think again.

Jordan Eberle and his band of hooligan Oilers will take on the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena in BC tonight.  You may begin pregaming now.
