When the NHL announced it was launching its new data platforms for its players, it was a bit of a surprise, but now that the game has been in use for just over a week, it’s becoming a reality.
The league announced that the data platforms will begin in September and be available for players to access on the site by the end of the year.
While that is a bit far in the future, it gives NHL players the ability to collect and share data from the game that’s being played, such as goals and assists, which is important for a player who’s struggling with injuries.
The data platforms are part of the NHLPA’s Digital Content Strategy, which aims to provide the NHL with a consistent and accurate picture of its fans, both fans and players.
The platforms will allow players to see which players are making the most plays and which are having the most goals and shots, as well as how many shots are being taken per game.
The goal is to get more people playing the game and giving their opinions on the game, which will be more valuable in the long run.
With that in mind, we asked the NHL to share the most important data it wants to share with players in its new platforms.
We’ll do our best to keep track of all the data that’s been made available and share it with you in a future article, but for now, here are the highlights of what the NHL is releasing in the next few weeks.
