With a new metric, based on the Elo chess rating system, we will revolutionize advanced hockey statistics.

 

Our hockey Elo metric evaluates a player's overall two-way play: scoring AND defense, even strength AND power-play/penalty-kill.

Elo ratings are relativistic, for example if Player A (below average) plays well on a shift against Player B (above average), then the Elo of Player A will go up!

A player's Elo is updated dynamically, with each shift a players Elo may go up or down without one large calculation on the player's dataset.

Who are We?

Find out about how one hockey lover in a windowless office at Stanford University worked with some friends to come up with the Elo algorithm.
