One-game Scouting Report for JP Anderson

JP Anderson was signed as an undrafted free-agent by the San Jose Sharks in September of 2010. Anderson is a 5'11", 190 lbs right-handed shooting goalie, and is currently playing for the Sarnia Sting. Anderson is a great puck-moving goalie, with a tight-butterfly and solid butterfly posture.

This one-game scouting report is from the Sarnia Sting's 3-2 loss to the London Knights on March 16th, 2012.

Our scouting reports for goalies focus on their ability to make saves, make big saves, control rebounds, and maintain good balance.  The results of  these attributes are added together to produce the goaltender's rating. The highest possible rating is 4.00, while the lowest possible rating is 0.00. The higher the value the better a goalie has played.

The first number involved in the calculation is the percentage of saves a goalie makes without giving up a rebound. For example, if a goalie makes 10 saves and gives up only 1 rebound his "no rebound percentage" is .900. Again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

The next number in the calculation is the percentage of safe rebounds a goalie gives up for each rebound allowed. Rebounds deflected outside of the main slot are considered safe. As such, a safe rebound is defined as a rebound outside of an imaginary line drawn from each goalpost to the corresponding board-side hash mark. As an example of this calculation, if a goalie gives up 10 rebounds and deflects 9 of those pucks outside the slot, his "safe rebound percentage" is .900. Again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

The next number is the percentage of saves that would be considered "big saves". A big save is defined as any save made on a play that would be considered a traditional scoring chance. As an example of this calculation, if a goalie makes 5 big saves on 20 shots his "big save percentage" would be .250. Once again, the higher the number, the better a goalie performs.

We also track how a goalie controls the puck. We do this by tracking his successful or unsuccessful pass-attempts, as well as his successful or unsuccessful attempts to dump the puck out of his zone. The resulting numbers are used to produce a ratio of successful plays for every 1 unsuccessful play.

SHORT HANDED GOALTENDER RATING

Short-handed rating track only those events that occur while a goalie's team is short-handed. Anderson had a tough time stopping shots while short-hande. As such, he produced a low SH goaltender rating of 1.33. He allowed a rebound on his only save, producing a no rebound percentage of 0.00. That said, his only rebound was placed outside the slot; giving him a safe rebound % of 100% (1.000). Anderson's short-handed save percentage of only 33% (0.333) seriously hurt his SH rating.

OVERALL GOALTENDER RATING

Anderson made up for a tough SH rating with an impressive even-strength rating. His play at even-strength was enough to push his overall goaltender rating to an impressive 2.02. Anderson did a great job controlling his rebounds, as he allowed only 13 total rebounds on 29 saves. Giving him a no rebound percentage of 55% (0.552). Eight of the 13 rebounds he did produce ended up in the slot, giving him a safe rebound percentage of  39% (.385)

Anderson showed he could make some big saves, as 5 of his 28 saves came off of opposition scoring chances. Giving him a big save percentage of 17% (0.172). Overall he stopped 29 of 32 shots for a save percentage of 91% (.906).

Anderson's puck-handling ratio was simply perfect. So perfect in fact, that it cannot be expressed as a ratio. Anderson was successful with all 16 of his puck-handling attempts; completing  16 successful passes during the game.

Anderson has produced one of the highest goaltender ratings to-date. His high rating was molded mostly by his ability to deflect shots out of play. This produced one of the highest no rebound percentages ever recorded.

Keep in mind this is a one-game scouting report. As such, it is not meant to express Anderson's long-term development potential. It is simply meant to represent Anderson's play during this one game.
