As analytics become more commonplace in the hockey community, it’s imperative that fans can get all of the information they need, whenever they need. One of those people making this possible is a gentleman by the name of Domenic Galamini, a statistics student who is helping everyone understand analytics.
Galamini created the Horizontal Evaluative Rankings Optic (HERO) chart. This chart, based on performance, helps determine what role a player is best suited for. A full breakdown can be found courtesy of THW’s Devin Slawson. It truly is a unique tool that can really open up eyes into the real value of a player.
And now, thanks to Galamini, we are proud to bring you these charts to access at any time right here on The Hockey Writers. Bookmark this page and come back often to check the Chart on any NHL player. You can find more analytics information on Galamini’s site, Own The Puck.
These charts are interactive, you can insert any player name in the left side drop-down box just below ‘Player Name”. Try a few.
