While this STAT got a little bit more controversial this season with 3 of the 11 forecasters (including McKeens and Scott Cullen) not submitting formal Shutout Rank or Total projections, most forecasters and poolers agree that Shutout Stats are still important and different enough to have projections for them.
Hockey Le magazine lead the way with 79.37 of a possible 100 Pts, The Hockey News finished second with 77.66 Pts, and Left Wing Lock took third with 68.25 Pts.
