HABS: Hamilton Prospects Puck-possession Tendencies and Success-rates When in Possession (offensive-zone)By Kicks
The first graph below represents each player's tendency (what play they are likely to chose) when in possession of the puck in the offensive-zone. The green bar shows how often they choose to pass, the red bar shows how often they choose to deke, while the blue bar shows how often they choose to shoot the puck toward the net.
The percentage is calculated by taking each player's total number of attempted passes, shots or dekes and dividing that by that player's total number of events engaged in with possession in the offensive-zone.
Antoine Corbin and Morgan Ellis are the only two players yet to have attempted a deke in the offensive-zone.
Corbin is the only player to have chosen to shoot more often they he's chosen to pass.
Other than Corbin, Ellis is the only other player who has chosen to shoot more than 40% of the time he has had the puck on his stick in the offensive-zone.
Not surprisingly, Nathan Beaulieu has chosen the deke option more often than any other defensemen, while Greg Pateryn is the only other d-man to have chosen to deke more than 15% of the time he has possession in the offensive-zone.
As for forwards, Blake Geoffrion has been more likely to pass than any other player.
In terms of shooting, Joonas Nattinen, Brendan Gallagher and Patrick Holland are the only forwards to have chosen to shoot more than 30% of the time they have possession in the offensive-zone.
Three players have been more likely to deke than shoot. They are Steve Quailer, Michael Bournival, and Aaron Palushaj.
The graph below shows how successful each player is at either maintaining possession or getting a shot through to the net when in possession of the puck in the offensive-zone.
Jarred Tinordi and Beulieu have been more successful than any other d-men when it comes to maintaining possession in the offensive-zone.
Louis Leblanc (injured) has been the most successful forward with possession in the offensive-zone.
Holland and Gallagher are the only other forwards with success-rates above 54%
Geoffrion and Quailer are the only two forwards with success-rates below 50%. Expressed more negatively, this means that both Geoffrion and Quailer have been more likely to give the puck away than maintain possession once they have the puck on their respective sticks in the offensive-zone.
