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.)

Total outs during a regular game?

In a regular Major League baseball game, their are 9 innings. If the home team wins in 9 innings, there will be 51 outs in the game. If the visiting team wins, there will be 54 outs recorded. Of course, a game can end after 5 innings in weather or other outside influences cause the game to end before the 9 innings. This would obviously affect the number listed above. The number of outs would also increase if the game went into extra innings.

How many outs are there in a Major League Baseball game?

A standard game of Major League Baseball includes 9 innings (this number may be shortened due to forces of nature or other events or may increase in the case of a tie ball-game after the bottom of the ninth and subsequent innings. The number of outs played in a standard baseball game is determined by the number of innings played and whether or not the home team was winning or not (tied or losing) after the top part of the last inning played. If after the away team bats in the 9th inning the home team is ahead points wise, the home team will not bat in the bottom of the 9th and the game will be finished. In such a case the number of outs equals the product of the number of innings and six, minus 3. [Outs=(Innings x 6) - 3]. However, if a winner cannot be decided after the away teams at-bats during the top of the 9th inning, the home team will bat until either their score is greater than the away team's, or the home team receives 3 outs. If the home team cannot overcome the away team's score and loses or ties, the number of outs played equals the product of the number of innings played and six. [Outs=(Innings x 6)] If the home team can overcome the away team's score and wins the number of outs played is equal to the product of the number of innings and six, subtracted by the number determined after subtracting from three the number of outs received by the home team while batting before overcoming the away team's score. [Outs=(Innings x 6) - (3 - #outs during bottom of last inning played)].

What is the fewest possible outs in a baseball game?

Somewhat of a trick question: the fewest outs will also be, with maybe one exception, the most outs. There are three outs per innings per side, this makes for six outs in an inning. There are a total of nine innings. this suggests that there are 54 outs in a baseball game, provided all innings are played. In some versions of the game, if the last side to bat has already won the game they can elect to not bat that innings, therefore making the fewest possible outs in a baseball game 51 instead.

How is basedball IP calculated?

For each full inning pitched, calculate 1 into the IP. If a pitcher only pitches part of an inning, find the number of outs and calculate it into a decimal. For example, let's say a pitcher pitched 5 innings and left the game with two outs. His IP would be 5.2. The reliever for him pitches 2 innings and leaves the game with no outs. Since he came in with two outs and continued two more innings, he would have 2.1 IP. The closing pitches pitches the rest of the game, or 2 innings. He would have 2 IP.
