What they typically call "advanced stats" or "fancy stats" can provide you with so much information about the game of hockey.
We've briefly mentioned them a few times on the blog (here, here and here) and basically the only reason we don't mention them more often is because there are numerous sites on the Internet that are much better at keeping, explaining and interpreting them than we could ever hope to be.
However, that doesn't mean that we're going to stay away from them forever. The information that they provide is often incredibly useful and it can tell you a lot about a game, a player or a team.
Note: As mentioned earlier, we're not experts at any of this stuff but it's interesting and we'd love to learn more. If anything we say here is wrong or if we've interpreted the stats wrong, we're sorry. Please let us know.Add a comment
