Evolving Hockey Episode 11: Hexagonal Rinks, Shorthanded Defense, Fantasy Projections, and the Kraken

Evolving Hockey Staff | November 23, 2021

Week 6 of the ’21-22 NHL season is in the books, and we’re back to discussing some nonsense: the battle for New York, irregular rink sizes, shorthanded defense, and various other strength state play. In the second half we talk about our new in-season fantasy projection tools that were released on Evolving Hockey this past week and more or less agree that the Kraken are getting goalied.

    Does ggpattern do what you guys are looking for in terms of color+patterns in charts?

      Thanks for the question! The ggpattern package is definitely something we could try out to make some of our visualizations more user-friendly. We have plans to look into this in the future.
