  2. “He is one off the goal lead among WCHA players. He leads the league in WCHA goals.”

    So which is it? Does he lead the WCHA in goals, or is is one off the lead?

    • He is one off the goal lead for all WCHA players AND nobody has more goals than him while playing against other WCHA teams. You see, someone has more goals against non-conference teams than Nelson.

    • I believe its both. He leads the league in goals that are scored in league games, And is one off the mark when considering games played against non-conference opponents in addition to league games.

    • The way I read it is he is leading the league in goals when considering only games against WHCA opponents. He is one off the lead when considering goals scored against all opponents.
