More scoring attempts needed from Joel Farabee
Through 53 games, Joel Farabee ranks second on the Flyers behind Travis Konecny in points with 41, and third with 17 goals. Like a few players on the Flyers this season, Farabee is enjoying an epic campaign, and he has clearly broken out.
But as was the case regarding Sanheim, Farabee could be doing way more despite setting new career-highs and approaching others. While his 128 shots on goal are also putting him on pace for a personal-best, Farabee is giving us just 2.41 shots on goal per game. While this is up from the 1.76 per game he put up last year, we need to see even more considering the number of times he’s converted shots into goals this season.
Farabee ranks second on the team in shooting percentage at 13.3 percent among Flyers players who have seen action in at least 38 games this season. Therefore, it would benefit this team if he took advantage of even more open looks in the final two months of the 2023-24 campaign, especially in the pivotal month of February.
This doesn’t mean Farabee must rival what Konecny has done (3.30 shots on goal per game), but if he can get close to 3.00, expect even more scoring from this hockey team.
