The purpose of scouting your opponent is to gather information on your opposition. Knowledge of trends, tendencies, strengths, and weaknesses can be turned into an effective tool at your disposal. Statistics is simply a gathering and analysis of quantified information. Analyzing this data then leads to being more equipped in making more informed decisions.
All the same types of information we gather in our team level analysis product can be used in gathering information on the opposition to supplement scouting and coaching decisions.
Some things we track:
- Traditional statistics: goals, assists, shots, misses, blocks, turnovers, takeaways, face offs, hits, penalties incurred and drawn
- Contextual information: zone starts, ice time
- Zone Transitional data: breakouts, zone entries
- Data broken up into types: even strength, power play, penalty kill
- And much more
