Dangerous Shots category in QMJHL Stat Tracking

I know this isn't specifically NHL related, but I figured I'd ask on the main board. I was poking around the QMJHL site and was looking at their stats leaders and I noticed a stat called dangerous shots.

http://theqmjhl.ca/stats/show/type/r...171/subtype/15

Can anyone explain to me what a dangerous shot is and how they count those?

I've always thought of myself as a fairly educated hockey fan and this is definitely a new one.

A shot that is determined to be a genuine threat to reach the back of the net.

Glad this is a legitimate discussion but still...haha.

In reply to the question...look at the unpredictable shots Kurtis Foster makes. That could be considered a "dangerous shot". Guy injuries players for cryin' out loud. Never knew there was a category for such a thing. Perhaps it's the speed of a shot?

That could very well be. How does that differ from shots on goal? I've often wondered how a scoring chance is different from a shot on goal. Is it a subjective stat like the difference between a hit and error in baseball?

Traditionally, scoring chances were shots from inside a trapezoid shape from faceoff dot to faceoff dot and down to the corners of the crease, back when the crease extended beyond the posts. I think they do it a little differently now, but maybe not. It may also include the high slot up to the top of the circles.

Yes, I'm also unsure about the exact zone, but the DS stat is meant to represent a quality scoring chance as opposed to a traditional shot on net. All shots that go in are by default a DS. It's not exact, but can give you a good indication of what's happening in a game just by looking at the scoresheet, while a simple SOG count doesn't necessarily indicate which team has had the 'better' chances.
