NE Prep Skaters Final Lists

Now we get to the skaters (forwards & defense). We are doing something different this year. Say we added some more facets (sorry bad pun).

In the past, we only rated players by their DITRP which measures them as a total prospect, which took in factors like age, the strength of the team, amount of saves, and other factors. We had some people that challenged that while once kid may be a better long-term project, they may not be better right now analytically at this moment, so how do you measure that? Well, we introduce DITRW, weighting that is independent of age factors, to measure that.

Let’s look at this year by example. While there are several incredible prospects in NE Prep hockey, there might not be a better defenseman prospect than Jack Rathbone of Dexter (Harvard) or a better forward prospect than John Farinacci of Dexter (Harvard). But it is a legit argument that they were not the best forwards or defense in NE Prep last year, that could probably go to players such as Matthew Fawcett of Winchendon (Quinnipiac) or Matthew Guerra of Cushing (Bentley) as forwards or Patrick Lavin of Worcester Academy or Jayson Dobay of Thayer (UMass) as defensemen who lead their teams to great success last year. So we should recognize those achievements as well.

Why penalize a player for mere age, especially since the NCAA D1 & D3 programs average in the 20’s for freshmen? We heard you and will rank both age-related prospect analytic lists as well as those independent of those factors.

MyHockeyRankings & DITR Hockey collaborate to form the largest analytical hockey player rankings in the USA

MHR (My Hockey Rankings) & DITR (Diamonds in the Rough Analytics) are pleased to announce a creative and content agreement in place to provide statistics and player ranking content starting in fall/winter of 2017.

We will start with national rankings of junior, prep, HS, full-season, and club hockey players in the USA, with a convenient portal for teams that do not have established statistic portals to have team representative enter statistics from that team, like the current system in MHR, with details to be forthcoming.

There will be a monthly ranking available in the High School aged players that will feature a top 100 F/50 D/25 G list as well as seasonal content by major region.

These rankings are all based on the established DITR rankings that take the players stats and analytics and balance it against the team rankings to establish an “apples to apples” comparison from an analytics standpoint across regions. Some past lists are available at FREE CONTENT.

DITR also offers Premium content that will have more elaborate lists and some of the top players from those lists will be featured in MHR content.

We look forward to further enhancing your enjoyment of both sites.

We are looking forward to providing free and premium content to our site followers!
