Spencer Knight and Yaroslav Askarov’s data have been added to serve as a bench mark, so you can understand how these goaltenders compare to two first round goaltenders in years’ past.

For the goaltenders who are playing in the OHL, should their season not happen and those goaltenders are not loaned out, I will be tracking data from their 2019-2020 campaign.

Quickness Data

My quickness tableau chart shows up/down time and side/side time. Up/down time is an average of how long it takes goaltenders to go from standing to down on the ice. Side/side time is how long it takes goaltenders to go from side to side in net. These times are an average and they were timed using an iPhone stopwatch. To be transparent, in order to be timed, the goaltender had to face a shot. So, I was not timing a goaltender’s side to side movement without a shot on net. Same with up/down time.

Rebound Data

My rebound tableau chart looks at how goaltenders control their rebounds. I have two charts. One compares low danger rebounds versus high danger rebounds and the other looks at medium danger rebounds versus high danger rebounds. Ideally, you want your high danger rebound rate to be lower and your low/medium danger rebound rate to be higher. So, in the medium/high danger rebound and low/high danger rebound charts, goaltenders that are towards the left side of the chart are far more appealing than ones toward the right.

To access the low/high danger chart, please click here. The medium/high danger chart, can be found here.

*The rebound data does not include data on Askarov and Knight*
