We are starting with the people between the pipes. We are doing something different this year. Say we added some facets (sorry bad pun).
In the past, we only rated players by their DITRGP 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 DITRGW, 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 goalie prospect than Derek Mullany of Dexter (Harvard). But it is a legit argument that he was not the best goalie in NE Prep last year, that would probably go to either Aiden Porter of Rivers (Princeton) or Eric Green of NMH (UMass-Lowell) who neither team, while both quality clubs last year, would not have gone as far as they did without either one of those two between the pipes. 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.

First Amateur Junior Player rankings of the year will be in the NAHL were after this weekends games we should have a good sample to make an early season analysis of the players. Top 100F/50D/ 25G will be available for subscribers.
Followed soon by NCDC, WSHL, BCHL, and of course USHL to name a few.
Then we will hit the Tier III, with the NA3PL, USPHL & EHL to name a few.

DITR Hockey lets the stats tell the story and the rest is up to the scouts and coaches (we call them DITRy Players).
Since this is just a “slice” of the player’s stats for the year, they are subject to statistical anomalies because of the small sample and accuracy of reporting of the statistics.
But all statistics tell a story and the analysis is an attempt to reconfirm the players we know are premier and allow the scouts and coaches to find the “Diamonds In The Rough” (DITR) that might make their recruiting year complete.
We help find players that might be slightly off-radar, #DITRHockey tries to help these #DITRyPlayers get on the radar.
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!!
