The Basics – Glossary of Terms and DFS Scoring
Since this course is geared towards NHL beginners, let’s start with a brief rundown of the most common statistics you’ll encounter being scored while playing/researching/watching the action.
Goal – When the puck fully crosses the red line and into the oppositions net, a goal is awarded to the last player to touch the puck from the scoring team. You obviously want lots of these.
Assist – Awarded to as many as two players on the scoring team who passed, shot or directed the puck to the eventual goal scorer. Two assists are not awarded on every goal and there are plenty of goals that will go unassisted.
Shot on Goal – When a player directs a shot towards the opposition net and the puck is either needed to be saved by the opposing goalie or finds its way into the back of the net. This is not to be confused with a shot attempt.
