The averages shots on goal per NHL game is around 15-20. It all depends on the defense and how much the forwards back check. The overall skill on the team also determines how many shots on net. If its a worst team, there is more shots on net, the the team is a really good team, their is less shots on net.

With the 2005 rule changes, the shots on goal have gone up a bit with the new average around 25 to 30 and in some cases over 40 per game.

Average number of shots in an NHL game has changed very little since the late 1960s, when this statistic was first collected during the games. Average number has been, and still is, almost exactly 30.


On, the stats show an Avg. of 30 shots/game during the 2009-2010 season. Highest average was 34.1 by the Chicago Blackhawks and the lowest average was 27.6 by the Minnesota Wild. (Note: Regular season totals only.)

I was at a match today in Sydney's inner west, I have to say it was a pretty average affair, the winning team put six goals in, but can you believe they needed seventeen attempts to do so. Needless to say the losers, and I mean these guys were real losers, they had the one attempt on goal, which occurred when one of their corners was deflected in as an own goal by a player of the winning team. So in this pretty average game there are 18 shots on goal and 7 goals.
