    I did a lot of research and corrections on the NHL PPG/SHG/Penalty Box data - between 1999 and 2017 so far.

    One interesting side effect is that I can now pinpoint who was responsible for the unmatched penalties that were scored upon. And since NHL started recording the players drawing the penalty, who is responsible for drawing most such penalties.

    Here's the tally for 2017:
    Committed the most penalties that were scored upon
    1. ZACK SMITH 10
    2. ANDERS LEE 9
    3. RYAN JOHANSEN 9
    4. BRAYDON COBURN 8
    5. IAN COLE 8
    6. SAM BENNETT 8
    7. BROOKS ORPIK 8
    8. KRIS LETANG 8
    9. DYLAN LARKIN 8
    10. ALEXANDER RADULOV 8

    Drew the most penalties that were scored upon
    1. NIKITA KUCHEROV 11
    2. MATHEW BARZAL 11
    3. TIMO MEIER 9
    4. NIKOLAJ EHLERS 8
    5. VINCENT TROCHECK 8
    6. JORDAN EBERLE 7
    7. YANNI GOURDE 7
    8. JOHNNY GAUDREAU 7
    9. MIKKO RANTANEN 7
    10. WILLIAM NYLANDER 7

    I will post more summaries that this new data opens for me. Also I will add it turns out that in 1999 9 PS goals were not attributed correctly as such. There are no errors past 1999, and there is no way to check before that since the first GS reports come from 1999.
