Team Power Play plus Penalty Kill : 2016-17 NHL Season

While this isn't a mainstream NHL statistic, the barometer for overall special teams success in hockey involves the combination of penalty kill and power play percentages.  The magic number that teams strive to achieve is greater than 105% combined.  

Typically around 10% of NHL teams can exceed the 105% level, and it's considered exceptional. Anything under 100% combined would be a dissapointing special teams effort.  The average for the NHL is always 100%.
