While the hockey community has embraced advanced statistics — just check out the NHL.com stats page — and things like Corsi, Fenwick, and time on ice, are tracked in the American Hockey League, those numbers aren’t made available to the media and public.
The only official stats are goals, assists, points, plus/minus, power play goals, shorthanded goals, penalty minutes, and shots on goal.
Here at Wrong Side of the Red Line, we are dipping our toe into the advanced statistics pool this season. It’s a start — remember I’m a one-man operation — but hopefully it’s an effort that will help give added statistical perspective on Texas Stars and Dallas Stars prospects.
All the stats below have been tracked by hand, they are not official.
Player usage (home games only)
This a scaled down version of Rob Vollman’s Player Usage Charts in bar graph form, using information I can track from the Cedar Park Center press box by hand.
This chart shows how often a player starts in the offensive zone. It does not take quality of competition into consideration (which I can’t track by hand and cover a game).
Face-offs (home games only)
Just like it sounds, Texas Stars face-off percentage for home games only.
Goalie situation save percentage (home games only)
Goalie save percentage in different situations at home.
Player spray chart (all games)
Charts that track where Texas Stars goals have been scored.
Goalie spray chart (all games)
Charts that track where Texas Stars goalies have allowed goals from.
