    How did you make the playing field charts? They are really cool!

    Thanks Shantala! The rink charts are just scatter plots which I’ve formatted to look more like an ice rink. The hardest part has been estimating an exponential function which draws the lines that match the exact bend in the boards for each corner of the rink. If you look through some of my other posts that summarize multiple games worth of stats, you’ll see I still haven’t found an exact match (it doesn’t help that all of the NHL rinks have different levels of consistency when it comes to recording positional data)
