Part of the analysis involved in putting together the McKeen’s Hockey Pool Yearbook player profiles includes detailed statistical analysis. Some in the form of conventional statistics, i.e. goals, assists etc. while technology has substantially improved advanced metrics that have slowly permeated their way into – and in some instances, replaced – mainstream analysis.
Our previous post introduced player usage charts, ushering in an era of McKeen’s Hockey that will coincide with our new shiny website’s entrance into an enhanced modern approach to analysis.
This post is going to be brief, but full of conventional statistic breakdowns, introduced in a post on the Leafs Nation.
The PDF that can be downloaded here (note this will redirect to a page to open up a pdf of the document):
This is the first part in a series breaking down a detailed look at players goals and assists in relation to who registered points among players.
The post on the Leafs site was isolated to even strength production and included some advanced metrics.
This pdf is based on various players from teams that did not make the postseason in 2011-12, breaking down:
Goals by Period – both at home and on the road
Assists breakdown at even strength, on the power play and shorthanded
The Assists breakdown features two separate components, as broken down below in this example featuring Ryan Getzlaf.
Getlaf is the main player being analyzed, with a listing of players he skated with throughout the season. We will only focus on Corey Perry in this instance, and the chart reads as follows.
Perry scored 12 even strength goals to which Getzlaf registered an assist, with eight being a first assist (column AB1) on the score sheet and four as second assists (column AB2).
On the power play, Perry had 9 goals in which Getzlaf earned an assist, five 1st assists (AB1) and four 2nd assists (AB2).
Perry, earned four assists on seven of Ryan Getzlaf’s even strength goals and three power play assists on Getlafs’s four power play goals.
