NOV 8, 2014 DITR Guide Service (@DITR1A) is going to start providing it’s analytics and some exclusive analytic content to our friends at Over The Boards (@OTBElite @OTBPuckWatch).

As many of you know, analytics is growing in importance in the hockey world as resources to find those better players and the competition for all players becomes more and more intense. Advanced weighted analytics such as DITRS, DITRG and DITRPIG (more on the descriptions of those analytics in out DITR Analytics page on our website).

OTB is one of the premier resources for coaches and scouts all over the world on inside information and analysis on the premier hockey players in North America and DITR Guide Service helps verify those scouting reports and find the Diamonds In The Rough through unbiased weighted analytics. It is difficult for College, Prep, Junior and Catholic schools to have the resources to find the players they need in a very competitive environment. DITR helps in that process.

DITR is thrilled about the opportunity to further spread the analytics gospel to the hockey community and helping players that might not be on radar, get on radar #justthestats

DITR specializes in amateur hockey analytics and helping players realize the opportunity to play at higher levels in prep & private. #URBTRthan1A.

2014 MA Selects Rankings U16s & U18s

**UPDATED 11-7-14**

Just in time for Massachusetts Championships and New England Championships we will release the 2014 MA Selects Rankings for the current players. #justthestats #statstellnolies #URBetRthan1A

Please note, statistical analysis is defined as “statistical analysis involves collecting and scrutinizing every single data sample in a set of items from which samples can be drawn”. The goal of statistical analysis is to identify trends, sometimes from small sample sizes, the smaller the sample the size the bigger the chance of abnormalities. It is a tool. So please note there may be places were coaches / scouts / advisors / players and of course parents will not agree with these analysis pages….the stats are of course offensively weighted….BUT, as the saying goes, the stats don’t lie. While there will be players that are undoubtedly more “acclaimed” that others on the list, the combination of statistics that are weighted by strength of team, schedule, position weight, birth year is a good predictor of our scale which is the DITR rankings. That being said the small sample size (14 games) will allow for anomalies such as a goalie playing only against weaker teams, a player that puts up big numbers only against weaker teams, etc. This list is intended as a way to sort and to find DITR players, the larger the sample size the better the formulas would work, but there will be a few players that deservingly should be higher or lower but the difference of a few bad games or great games make the huge difference.

The other question is if a higher DITR ranked ’99 is better than a ’98 right now? No. It means that when that ’99 reaches that same age as the ’98 they are PROJECTED to be better, BASED on the statistics from the season. In interest of time I did not list schools and commitments, but will update at a later point.

2013 MA Select U16/U18 DITR Analysis – reposted

2013 MA Select U16/U18 DITR Analysis

With the 2014 MA Select season ending this weekend and the MA & NE Region USA Hockey playoffs next weekend (CT play downs are this weekend) we thought it would be a good time to review last season U16 & U18 MA Selects to see were those players are this year and who is “new” on the scene.

Please note, statistical analysis is defined as “statistical analysis involves collecting and scrutinizing every single data sample in a set of items from which samples can be drawn”. The goal of statistical analysis is to identify trends, sometimes from small sample sizes, the smaller the sample the size the bigger the chance of abnormalities. It is a tool. So please note there may be places were coaches / scouts / advisors / players and of course parents will not agree with these analysis pages….the stats are of course offensively weighted….BUT, as the saying goes, the stats don’t lie. While there will be players that are undoubtedly more “acclaimed” that others on the list, the combination of statistics that are weighted by strength of team, schedule, position weight, birth year is a good predictor of our scale which is the DITR rankings.

Does this mean a highly DITR ranked ’99 is better than a ’96 right now? No. It means that when that ’99 reaches that same age as the ’96 they are PROJECTED to be better, BASED on the statistics from the season. Not all commitments are updated because this was done this summer originally, we will update the commitments as they happen.

Here they are:

U16s:

2013 MA Select U16 Goalies DITRG Rankings

2013 U16 MA Selects DITRS Skater Rankings

2013 U16 MA Selects DITRS Forward Rankings

2013 U16 MA Selects DITRS Defense Rankings
