BSH Advanced Stats Glossary

A handy glossary of terms surrounding the ever-confusing world of advanced hockey statistics:

- TOI/60: Time on ice per 60 minutes. This calculates even-strength time on ice for the player per 60 minutes of team play. Two things to notice: 1) It isn't even-strength time on ice per GAME, as it adjusts for over-time periods; and 2) It is in decimal form, so 11.5 is eleven minutes and thirty seconds.

- QualComp: Quality of Competition. The average on/off-ice +/- of opposing players faced by a player.

- QualTeam: Quality of Teammates. The average on/off-ice +/- of players

- Corsi: a simple plus/minus-style rating of the total number of shots on goal, missed shots and blocked shots directed at the opposing net while a player is on the ice at even strength.

- Fenwick: the same as Corsi, but excluding blocked shots.

- Relative Corsi: measures the difference in Corsi between a player's on-ice performance and his team's performance when he's on the bench.

- Corsi Rel QoC: The average relative Corsi of opposing players, weighted by head-to-head ice time.

- Corsi Rel QoT: The average relative Corsi of teammates, weighted by head-to-head ice time.

- OZ%: the percentage of face-offs taken in the offensive zone while a player is on the ice. Even strength, minus empty net situations, only.

- GF/60: goals for while a player is on the ice per 60 minutes of ice time. Even strength, minus empty net situations, only.

- GA/60: goals against while a player is on the ice per 60 minutes of ice time. Even strength, minus empty net situations, only.

- Sh%: Team shooting percentage while a player is on the ice.

- Sv%: Team save percentage while a player is on the ice.
