The charts below represent Markov's statistics during the 2011-12 season. The first chart reflects his play in the offensive-zone, while the second chart represents his play in the defensive-zone.

The first column within each chart lists each category. The second column indicates his rating/ratio/success-rate/event per-minute within that category. The third column is the team average, while the fourth and fifth show his ranking among teammates. The first ranking is where he ranked among all 24 of his returning teammates, the second ranking is versus 8 returning defensemen (Kaberle, Gorges, Diaz, St. Denis, Weber, Emelin, Markov, Subban).

The Montreal Canadiens ended the season with a .378 winning-percentage. Andrei Markov played in 13 of the 82 games. With Markov in the line-up, Montreal's record was 5-8, for a .385 winning-percentage

OFFENSIVE-ZONE POSSESSION SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's offensive-zone puck-possession success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful passes, dekes, and shots that hit the net by the total number of attempted shots, dekes and passes.

Markov had an offensive-zone possession success-rate of at least 80% in 2 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 2-0 record. In games where Markov's o-zone possession rating was below 80%, the Habs winning-percentage was .222.



NEUTRAL-ZONE POSSESSION SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's neutral-zone puck-possession success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful passes, dekes, and dump-ins by the total number of attempted passes, dekes and dump-ins.

Markov had a neutral-zone possession success-rate of 100% in 6 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 2-4 record, and a winning-percentage of .333. The Habs did not win a game when Markov's n-zone possession success-rate fell below 67%.




DEFENSIVE-ZONE POSSESSION SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's defensive-zone puck-possession success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful passes, dekes, and dump-outs by the total number of attempted shots, dekes and dump-outs.

Markov had a defensive-zone possession success-rate above 80% in 4 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 3-1 record, and a winning-percentage of  .750. In games where Markov's d-zone possession rating dropped below 80%, the Habs winning-percentage fell to .333.




OFFENSIVE-ZONE DEFENSIVE SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's offensive-zone defensive success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful puck-battles, loose-puck recoveries, and intercepted opposition passes by the total number of puck-battles, loose-puck recovery attempts, and opportunities to intercept opposition passes. For defensemen, it is predominately a reflection of how successful a d-man is at pinching, or holding the puck in at the blueline.

Markov had an offensive-zone defensive success-rate of 100% in 5 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 3-2 record, and a winning-percentage of .600. In games where Markov's o-zone defensive rating dropped below 80%, the Habs winning-percentage dropped to .333; possibly due to an increase in odd-man rushes.



NEUTRAL-ZONE DEFENSIVE SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's neutral-zone defensive success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful puck-battles, loose-puck recoveries, and intercepted opposition passes by the total number of puck-battles, loose-puck recovery attempts, and opportunities to intercept opposition passes. The fact that the play is usually coming toward a defenseman in the neutral-zone, typically allows d-men to produce much higher n-zone defensive-ratings than forwards

Markov had a neutral-zone defensive success-rate of 100% in 7 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 3-4 record, and a winning-percentage of .429. When Markov's success-rate fell below 75%, the Habs winning record was .333.




DEFENSIVE-ZONE DEFENSIVE SUCCESS-RATE BY GAME

A player's defensive-zone defensive success-rate is calculated by dividing the number of successful puck-battles, loose-puck recoveries, intercepted opposition passes, and blocked shots by the total number of puck-battles, loose-puck recovery attempts, opportunities to intercept opposition passes, and opportunities to block shots. 

Markov had a defensive-zone defensive success-rate above 70% in 7 games. In those games the Canadiens had a 2-5 record, and a winning-percentage of .286. In games Markov's d-zone defensive rating dropped below 70%, the Habs winning-percentage was .500.




Please keep in mind, Markov played less than any other player. Therefore, his results are less indicative of his probable totals over a full season of play.
