Senior Chowder Cup


Some of the most talented hockey players in North America transcend on Foxboro, Raynham, Canton, Bridgewater & Walpole for the prestigious Senior Chowder Cup this weekend. In both the Junior A and the College open divisions there are many players and teams to watch. The great thing about this tourney are the rosters, were they play for school & club teams and the stats are maintained online, making it much easier for coaches and scouts to find and access the players they want to see and find a few DiamondInTheRough players. Please use our past reporting that is on the site and some new reporting this weekend to properly access that the player is not just hype, but has the goods behind it. Pretty skaters are sure to impress but back-up your scouting with analysis that makes you sure of your blue-chips and find the DITR players that make the difference from a good recruiting trip to a GREAT recruiting year!!

Happy scouting!!

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.
