Here is some more information about a great statistics and numbers-based hockey site, PowerScoutHockey.com:
“PowerScoutHockey.com truly gives hockey fans the ultimate NHL toolkit,” says Appleby. “The in-depth information and at-a-glance visual displays will increase hockey debates and help fuel the passion of NHL fans everywhere.”
PowerScout has been compared to the movie Moneyball where sabermetrics changed how professional baseball teams look at talent. The PowerScout system also uses objective, empirical evidence to measure in-game activity and they believe it will change the way people look at NHL hockey.
When fans and professionals visit the NHL section of Sportsnet.ca they will see the Game Tracker which brings the entire game to focus with one easy graph that charts goals, fights and each team’s momentum shifts. The other featured graph is called Game Dominance.
“Game Dominance is a cutting-edge visual tool that shows which team has more momentum,” says Appleby. “The momentum level is tracked from shots on goal in a given period of time. It is the first-ever live game chart that measures the percentage of play dominated by each team during an NHL game.”
