Distance on the ice and with the puck

Vyacheslav Voynov is retaining the leadership in the distance category. The Avangard defenseman may be the first player to reach the 300-kilometer mark in the next game already. Jokerit's Mikko Lehtonen is the second-ranked player – yet another testament of his fantastic season. Kunlun's Trevor Murphy climbed up to the top-5.
