About this item

Hockey Abstract Presents... Stat Shot is a guide fans can use to understand and enjoy what analytics brings to the game of hockey. In a fun and informative way, it explores how to build a team, what can be learned from a player’s junior numbers, how to measure faceoff success, who’s the best hitter and shot blocker, better ways to record save percentage, and everything else you ever wanted to know about shot-based metrics. Whether looking for a reference for leading-edge research and hard-to-find statistical data, or for passionate and engaging storytelling, Stat Shot belongs on every serious hockey fan’s bookshelf.
Advanced stats give hockey’s powerbrokers an edge, and now fans can get in on the action. Knowledge of the underlying numbers make the game even more fun. Acting as an invaluable supplement to traditional analysis, Stat Shot can be used to test the validity of the conventional wisdom, and to gain insight into what teams are doing behind the scenes ? or maybe what they should be doing.
