I'd like to know how each individual skater has their "time on ice" stat listed, down to the second.

How is it calculated, does every skater have his own personal timer with a stopwatch or something?

Probably have chips implanted in them that trigger a big computer when they are on the ice.

I would reckon it's based on the total time they are on the ice

Nah, probably underneath their skin, under the armpit or something... or maybe around the funnybone. I'll go ask a scientist.

I helped do this in the AHL last year. Could be a lot different from what they do in the NHL, but you never know.

All you had was a laptop with a custom Ice-time logging program. Each player was listed by their number and organized in lines. You'd click the line name if the whole line came out, or each individual player if needed. Click them once and it counts up, click them again and it stops.

It absolutely wasn't perfect down to the second, but it was pretty close. One-person job....quite simple, but we only did the home team. It kind of sucked when you had special jerseys with hard-to-read numbers.

There are stat people who keep track of when players are on the ice. NHL.com has shift charts for every game so you can see who was on the ice when. They aren't going to be 100% accurate but over the course of the season things will mostly even out.

I would imagine they have a handful of people calculating it, probably using some sort of computer program to make it efficient.

A good chip would be better. They could use the same ones they use for lost dogs or kids. I think they have them for kids.

Heard about that too... Rumor has it, that those are also responsible for filtering the answers players give in interviews...
