HABS PROSPECTS: Defensive-ratings

Individual success-rates when attempting to remove or obtain puck-possession from the opposition

At its simplest form, the goal of any skater in a defensive-situation is to remove or obtain puck-possession from the opposition. By tracking every puck-possession event during a game, I am able to break down each player's success-rate when attempting to remove or obtain puck-possession from the opposition. Events involved in this calculation include puck-battles, blocked passes, blocked shots, poke-checks, loose-puck recoveries, etc.
