The Data Is Kept

The +/- was kept for years before Ron Andrews convinced the NHL teams to release it. The Leafs in the mid fifties tracked TOI for both teams at MLG. Dick Irvin Jr tracked stats for his father with the Canadiens.

It's not the actual data from the eras listed but the approach, template and methodologies that can be extrapolated and analyzed to the present.
