One-game Scouting Report for Scott Clemmensen

Scott Clemmensen is a 6'2", 201 lbs left-handed shooting goalie with the Florida Panthers. The 34-year-old   posted a 14-6-6 record, with a goals against average of 2.57, and a save percentage of .913. The American goalie has a career save percentage of .910, and GAA of 2.64. Clemmensen made $1,200,00 this season, and is a potential UFA on July 1st.

This scouting report is from a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on March 27th, 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.

OVERALL GOALTENDING RATING

Clemmensen's even-strength play was impressive, and allowed him to produce an overall goaltending rating of 2.10 (equalling Carey Price). He stopped 27 of 29 shots for a save percentage of 93% (.931), and allowed 18 rebounds, for a no-rebound percentage of 33% (.333). Like most goalies with high ratings, Clemmensen did a great job controlling the placement of those rebounds, as only 7 of his rebounds ended up in the slot; giving him an impressive safe-rebound percentage of 61% (.611).

Six of his 27 saves were made when Montreal had a scoring chance; a big save percentage of 22% (.222).

Clemmensen had a limited amount of puck-handling events. He completed only 1 of 3 pass-attempts, for a low puck-handling ratio of 0.50 successful plays for every 1 unsuccessful play. Expressed differently, this shows that Clemmensen made more unsuccessful plays when moving the puck than successful plays.
