The international scoring race is something to behold. The scoreboards are filling up internationally, and thanks to the work of Gabe Desjardins we can compare the scoring rates across leagues. Using Gabe's NHL equivalencies I've put together the top scorers in all of the hockey world. All Major Junior, AHL, KHL, SEL, DEL, SMLIGA, and Swiss league scorers are considered. The NCAA wasn't included this time due to how few games they've played, but if the lockout drags on they'll be included in the near future.

The current world leading scorer is, you guessed it, Martin Ruzicka. Ok, maybe you didn't guess it. The full top 50 is after the jump.

*I left Patrice Bergeron, Henrik Zetterberg, Danny Briere and Claude Giroux on the list despite only playing four to five games each. The reasoning is that their scoring has been so prolific internationally this year, and they have a history of NHL success to suggest it isn't a complete fluke.

If doing prospects, use the updated NHLe translation factors that also take age into account rather than the old blanket ones Gabe calculated years ago.

And if possible also use the separate goal and assist translation factors - they tend to be far more stingy on awarding assists in some of those European leagues compared to the NHL.

Lockout silver lining! Hundreds of new data points to help refine NHLe estimates!

All Im really taking from this is that Extraglia is a very poor league, and they now have a few big fish running amok in their small pond.

What I take from this is that the NHLE conversion factors being used here are years/decades out of date.
