I’m Sean Tierney – I’ve been writing about hockey for a couple of years and have done a lot of stats viz work during the past year or so. I think advanced stats add and improve upon traditional understandings of hockey.

But there’s a challenge – convincing people who aren’t on board to buy-in to statistics that are sometimes confusing or, even worse, that challenge conventional understandings of the game. Intuitive images and easy-to-digest charts are a way to convey lots of information in a single snapshot. I think there’s value in that.
