Analytics on BYU Ice Hockey

Abstract

The BYU hockey team competes in the American Collegiate Hockey Association. This project involved keeping a box score for each game which was then shared with team members and the coaching staff. I also collected detailed information on player lineups and odd-man matchups to evaluate power play efficiency and full strength efficiency. In my presentation, I will compare power play performance of this year’s team with last year’s team. I will also show individual player efficiency ratings that can be used to help guide lineup choices in both full strength and power play scenarios.
