HockeyData lands first NHL client
HockeyData will be analyzing player data to support the Washington Capitals, their first NHL client, in their draft picks for the next season.
"Data from the SFU team at HockeyData Inc. may assist with future [hockey team] planning as the team goes forward.
'Our process involves tracking every individual player's events based on time and location throughout a game,” explains Gawenda, operations manager. “We track each player's performance and provide this data to the team, which allows them to gain a greater understanding of players in the American Hockey League.'"
