Digging into the World of Advanced Statistics

Goals are rare. Players may get robbed by an incredible save. A forward could weave through the defense with precision, deke the goaltender out of position, feed the puck to his open teammate and inevitably receive zero fantasy points when his teammate misses a wide-open net. These are just examples, but it does highlight the fact that there’s underlying factors that could have major effects on a player’s end-of-season stats.
