The old saying is “there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.”

Times have begun to change in the NHL.

While the sophisticated statistics that define baseball have not transferred to hockey wholly, stats have become an important part of the game for fans, media and management.

A statistic like the Corsi Number has become increasingly cited for instance.

Basically, the Corsi Number is the shot differential when a player is on the ice—including actual shots, shots at goal, and at times, blocked shots.

The Neilson Number, the measurement of a player’s contribution to scoring chances for and against, is another metric that many everyday fans do not see.

In the case of the Edmonton Oilers, writers Dave Staples and Jonathan Willis provide this integral statistical information in the Edmonton Journal’s Cult of Hockey section.

However, there are some key statistics that have been used for many years that help to illustrate the Oilers in 2013.

Here are the five most important player and team statistics from the Edmonton Oilers’ 2013 season.
