Much has changed at faceoffs.net in the couple months since its official roll-out, however, as I’ve worked hard this off-season to bring a lot of cool new things online. Some highlights:
Sortable team & player face-off breakdowns: Just about any breakdown of face-off data you want is at your fingertips. Team face-off stats and player face-off stats can be viewed and filtered by home/away, even-strength/power play/shorthanded, and/or defensive/offensive/neutral zones.
Player linemates: On player pages you can view all the teammates who lined up for face-offs with that player. For example, so far this year through two games, Philadelphia‘s Claude Giroux has taken all but one of his 42 face-offs with Jakub Voracek. The Flyers had better hope that Giroux and Voracek’s 37% face-off percentage together is a small sample size fluke.
Scoring: Finally, in an effort to diversify beyond face-offs and provide a little perspective for the face-off numbers, I added scoring statistics and have leaderboards for scoring-per-15 minutes and just regular scoring.
I have lots more to come, including some advanced face-off stats unlike anything out there. Stay tuned, and tweet me @ctab to let me know if you find any of this useful or have any questions.
