Pioneer of hockey analytics inks new book deal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 31, 2017

Calgary, Canada – Rob Vollman, leading expert in the field of hockey analytics, three-time author and eight-time contributing author, is pleased to announce that he has signed a book deal to write the next edition of Hockey Abstract Presents… Stat Shot: The Ultimate Guide to Hockey Analytics.

“I'm honestly thrilled to see our relationship with Rob continue,” says Michael Holmes, editor at ECW Press. “He's easy to work with and his first book was an unqualified success. We've helped each other to the forefront of all books dealing with this material, and we've carved out a unique niche in the world of hockey publications. Working with him again will give us a unique opportunity to further build both his brand and on the success of the first Stat Shot.”

The follow-up to the 2016 bestseller Stat Shot will follow a similar format, but will also be geared to new readers without any background in statistical analysis. It features an introduction to the absolute basics of hockey statistics as well as the kind of ’Who is the best?’ analytics for which Vollman is famous. It is scheduled to be released in Fall 2018.

“I want to thank people for their support of my work,” says Vollman about his new book deal. “This is only possible because of the support people have shown for my books, and their enthusiasm for the material, which showed that there was a greater demand for hockey analytics references from fans.”

Vollman will also be releasing the 2017 edition of his popular anthology Hockey Abstract in August 2017.
