We are roughly at the midway point of the National Hockey League season and coming off the All-Star break the NHL has released the top 15 selling jerseys through the first three months of the season.

While a number of the results will likely come as surprises to fans of the league, perhaps the most notable part of this list is the fact that a name we very much would have expected to see is not included. Nowhere to be seen in the top 15 is the name of second overall pick Patrik Laine, and while Laine does play for the Winnipeg Jets who boast the smallest market in the NHL, one would have thought his sheer star power would have propelled him up the charts.

First overall pick in the draft Auston Matthews has had no such problems and in fact has come quite close to claiming the number one spot on the chart. Here's the full breakdown as per NHLshop.com:

1) Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins

2) Auston Matthews, Toronto Maple Leafs

3) Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks

4) Jonathan Toews, Chicago Blackhawks

5) Connor McDavid, Edmonton Oilers

6) Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

7) Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Capitals

8) Vladimir Tarasenko, St. Louis Blues

9) Claude Giroux, Philadelphia Flyers

10) Shayne Gostisbehere, Philadelphia Flyers

11) Dylan Larkin, Detroit Red Wings

12) Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens

13) Rick Nash, New York Rangers

14) Patrice Bergeron, Boston Bruins

15) Ryan McDonagh, New York Rangers
