Death of a Legend

Claus Andersen

The end of the best parody stats account ever.

It's with a heavy heart (not really) that I announce a death in the hockey family. TSN's Stats Guy is no longer TSN's Stats Guy because he somehow got a job hosting on the NHL Network. Worst of all, on his Twitter account he deleted every single nonsense tweet he made over the year, and now it just redirects you to @LeafsStatsGuy which is probably the intern he had pulling these stats for him all along. And just like the former, this account has never mentions advanced stats.

This one's for you Stats Guy.
