A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins
Fun with Charts
October 14, 2014Posted by on
Late last year I saw Joy Lindsay, the old beat writer for the Binghamton Senators, tweet a chart that went inside of the usual boxscore and covered a players stats when they were on the ice for a goal scored, in all situations. Even strength, power play, short handed, for, against, everything. Since there isn’t “advanced statistics” here in the AHL, Joy’s idea was the next best thing, in my opinion.
So, I have decided to run with Joy’s idea this season and maintain my own chart tracking every player that steps on the ice for the Penguins this season. These charts are going to be on a page, which you can click to at anytime on the top of the blog. It will be referred to weekly, as I update it. Should be fun to track this year. There’s nothing much to it now, but there will be as the season wears on.
You can click to the chart here. There will be a dedicated, “Charts” tab at the top of the blog all season long.
