Habs: Bulldogs Prospects Puck-possession Success-rates by Zone

By Kicks @Chrisboucher73
Maintaining puck-possession is a key component of any team's success. Tracking every puck-possession event engaged-in by every Habs prospect in Hamilton allows us to quantify this aspect of their play.
The graphs included here represent each player's success-rate when attempting a play while in possession of the puck. These plays can be dekes, passes, or shots directed on net.
Both Louis Leblanc and Alexander Avtsin have limited events. As such, their ratings are not yet indicative of their skills. The top success-rate maintaining possession in the offensive-zone belongs to Patrick Holland; followed closely by Nathan Beaulieu. Brendan Gallagher and Michael Bournival are the only other player's with o-zone success-rates above 55%.
The lowest success-rate among defensemen belongs to Antoine Corbin, while the lowest among forwards has been produced by Steve Quailer.

Among forwards, Quailer has the top success-rate when attempting to maintain puck-possession in the neutral-zone. The only other forwards with success-rates above 70% are Blake Geoffrion and Patrick Holland. The lowest ratings among forwards have been produced by Michael Blunden and Bournival.
The top success-rate among defensemen belongs to Joe Stejskal. That said, he has significantly less events than his defensive teammates. Among players with larger data pools, Fred St. Denis has the top success-rate, followed by Nathan Beaulieu.
Jarred Tinordi has the lowest success-rate when attempting to maintain puck-possession in the neutral-zone. Interestingly, it is the only zone where Tinordi is not among the team-leaders. Once he makes the decision to skate the puck up-ice, he continues to struggle making the redline before being checked by an opposing forward.

Seven prospects have success-rates above 70% when attempting to maintain puck-possession in the defensive-zone. Bournival leads all players, followed closely by Gabriel Dumont and Gallagher. The top success-rate among d-men belongs to St. Denis. The other defensemen with success-rates above 70% are Beaulieu, Tinordi, and Pateryn.
The lowest success-rate among forwards was produced by Quailer, while the lowest among d-men belongs to Brendon Nash.
