NHL 2015-16 Player Data

It’s the 10th annual NHL super-spreadsheet, including roughly 350 stats on all 898 players who were in even a single game in the 2015-16 season.

Yes, 10 years. Initially, this was created for literally about a dozen people, and didn’t have nearly as many individual stats. Now, the community has grown far and wide, and there are stats we wouldn’t even have dreamed of during the lockout.

This spreadsheet contains a complete collection of statistics, both basic and advanced, from a wide variety of analysts and web sites including Hockey Reference, Gabriel Desjardins’ Behind the Net, Andrew Thomas, Sam Ventura and War on Ice, Tom Awad and Hockey Prospectus, NHL Numbers, David Johnson and Hockey Analysis, Craig Tabita’s faceoff stats, NHL’s official feed, Steve Burtch’s dCorsi, Nick Abe’s expected goals from Xtra Hockey Stats, Don’t Tell Me About Heart, and so much more.
As always it includes biographical information, the basics, useful metrics (like zone starts, penalties drawn and percentages), advanced Corsi-based statistics, and established stats like GVT and Point Shares – all broken down by manpower situation, and also home/road splits. Like last year, the work has been divided into separate sheets for each manpower situation.


Edit April 24, 2016: Corrected a few per-60-minutes calculations that were per-60-seconds. Fixed Passes. Credit to @Baaaaaaaaaaaaah
Edit April 26, 2016: Corrected off-ice shot attempt data, which also impacts the Relative Corsi calculation.
