In this edition we covered all things tracking with an expert panel on the subject: Neil Greenberg from the Washington Post and ESPN Insider, Geoff Detweiller of Broad Street Hockey, Eric T. of BSH and NHLnumbers and our own tracking addict Corey S. We went over Eric’s article on the link between scoring chances and shot differential and what it means for scoring-chance tracking, Geoff and Eric’s very promising project tracking zone entries, tracking zone exits and what the future holds for tracking/advanced stats.
If you would like to track zone entries, which I strongly encourage, please contact Eric T. at this email address: [email protected]. He will hook you up with an easy-to-use spreadsheet that will automatically tell you who was on the ice for each entry if you record the time.
