Today I interview one of my favorite hockey researchers, Rob Vollman of Hockey Prospectus and Hockey Abstract. Rob has developed a number of great tools and stats that have become a major part of the hockey analytics community.
“A good hockey stat first of all has to be useful.”
“The real achievement is to take something that’s complex and make it simple.”
Rob’s personal page where he puts all his work. This site is a wealth of information–everything from Quality Starts to “Oz Coke charts” (AKA player usage charts) to historical comparisons. Your one-stop-shop for Vollman’s writing.
Another great site with a ton of great hockey writing from a bunch of today’s smartest minds.
