(#360) Inside the Numbers: Looking at passing, takeaways, hits, and counterattacks
In today's issue, we once again go inside the numbers. Today, we look at some team stats, including:
— Accurate passing percentage
— Takeaways in the defensive zone (with D-zone play time)
— The best teams on the counterattack
We also have a recruiting update, including BU landing a promising 6-foot-4 defenseman from the NTDP.
St. Thomas head coach Rico Blasi talked to CHN about a number of topics, including recruiting in the Twin Cities, and a note on a Wisconsin player who left the program last week.
