Final WCHA team stats


Recommended Posts

Glenn, the stats demon, compiled, recalculated, and organized the season stats into a very dense, but interesting page.

Some things that jump out at me:

  • UND held its opponents to the fewest shots
  • UND had the most shutouts
  • UND had the worst SV% on opponents' shots
  • UND did freaky-well when tied after 1 (how random)
  • UND was 2nd in shots on goal (to MN)
  • UND's special teams were average, while CC's led the league in both PP scoring and the kill
  • Random non-UND fact: SCSU spent an insane 43% of its playing time tied with its opponent in conference play
  • If someone tells you it was a 3-point game, assume Alaska lost

I don't know if this stat is interesting to anyone else, but UAA scored over 50% of its goals on the PP.

CC had the most PM in the conference, yet still managed to score the most goals in the conference and still had the best team defense.

Only UAA and SCSU had a lower GAA in conference than overall, alluding to solid non-conference play by WCHA teams.

Only three teams had a negative Goals/game differential, meaning those three teams were really outclassed by the rest of the conference.

UM scored 74% of its goals after the 1st period overall and 80% in conference - talk about slow starts.

UAA played zero neutral ice games, SCSU and DU just one.

Only three teams (CC, UM, MSUM) had winning records in games when their opponent scored first, and those were the only teams with winning records in games when trailing after one, with CC winning all 5 of the games they trailed after one.

UND was 16-2-1 when leading after one and 18-3-2 when scoring first, which appeared to be the best combined % of these two stats of all teams.

CC is the only team have lead more than 50% of game time for all games.

The most startling stats to me?

- Check out Minnesota State's conference third period shooting percentage.

- North Dakota took 95 more third period shots in conference play but it only netted them one, just one, more third period goal than their opponents.

By the way, you're welcome. :blush:
