Advanced Analytics

Team Contribution Composition

  • 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

The ultimate objective to hockey is outscore the opposition, but there are many actions involved prior to meeting this objective: gaining and maintaining possession, moving the puck forward, garnering scoring chances, etc.

By breaking down player contributions to the team in the different components, coaching and management gains not only a better understanding of team strengths and weaknesses, but which players are performing best at particular tasks.

Contributions are given with the added context of budget costs like scholarships and salary, as well as individual player ice time and role. In addition, we can show how the team and each player performs in each statistic in wins versus loses.

From this information comes many different potential applications:

Player acquisition and replacement - illuminating where largest holes in contributions exist

Optimizing coaching strategy - player ice time and usage allocation optimization

Player development - isolate areas where player may need attention or further coaching

Injury impact assistance - track team budget lost due to injuries and which areas the injury is impacting a team the most

Scouting and player evaluation - help define areas that creates a successful team and player


Private Advanced Player & Team Data 

While analytics initially evolved from a management perspective in trying to best evaluate player performance, there are many practical applications that can be exploited by individuals for both development and negotiation utilization.

Development

Player analytic performance reports can be a key component to accelerated development. Individual statistical tendencies can then be shared with their coaching staff to allow for better integration within team coaching strategy. Furthermore, understanding a player's productivity in relation to winning highlights his strengths and weaknesses as they move to higher levels of hockey.

Negotiation

The information obtained is also highly valuable to agents, scouts, and professional hockey programs, as it provides a depth of information that is rarely available to them. Tracked data can be used as a negotiating tool by comparing their client’s inputs and outputs players with statistical cohorts. Data also creates context to a player in how they may fill a need or put a scale to their accomplishments relative to other players at the same level.

A few statistics tracked are:

  • Traditional Statistics - shots, goals, hits, blocks
  • Locational Context -  shots, goals, scoring percentage in different areas of the ice
  • Puck Possession - puck touches, passes, turnover ratio
  • Penalty Differential -  penalties incurred versus drawn
  • Zone Transitional Data - breakouts and zone entries
  • and much more...
