Shot chart data is out

sportingcharts.com has their shot maps out, and i am very interested in this.

as some of you know i am a ducks fan, a team that is discussed when it comes to regression. so i've been looking forward to seeing the numbers

first here is there data for the season
http://www.sportingcharts.com/nhl/ic...=1&r2strength=

Now something i notice, is there seems to be a concerted effort to get shots from certain areas, and that is reflected somewhat by the average shot distance of 31.12 feet


How about a team the stat community really likes, the Kings?
their average shot distance is 34.33 feet their shooting % was in the mid 7's
http://www.sportingcharts.com/nhl/ic...=1&r1strength=

One other team that stands out to me is Boston, their average shot distance is over 35 feet, and they still have almost a 10% conversion rate, perhaps the krug/chara dynamic at play?

Anyways i looked thru all the team's. Anaheim has the 2nd closest shot distance rate, the islanders surprisingly were 1st.

can we take anything away from this?

I've seen these floating around, but didn't know where they came from. That works well with scoring chance data.

It'd be nice if you could see the defensive side of this stat, ie where shots are allowed against your team.

Not quite the same but close is this site;

http://somekindofninja.com/nhl/

You can filter shots for, against, ES, PP, SH, Home, Away, with specific players on or off the ice, from within a certain distance, from within the slot.

It's RTSS data, so not the greatest quality, but very cool none the less.

Cool link, Micklebot...

Seems like the closer the shot, the better the odds of scoring (which makes sense on a common level).

Example 1: Boston Bruins - Even Strength Only
181 Goals Scored
- 29 Goals were 0-10 Feet (16%)
- 82 Goals were 10-20 Feet (45%)

So roughly 61% of their goals were "inside" the face off circles of the attacking zone.

Example 2: Los Angeles Kings - Even Strength only
137 Goals Scored
- 31 Goals were 0-10 Feet (23%)
- 51 Goals were 10-20 Feet (37%)

So roughly 60% of their goals were "inside" the face off circles of the attacking zone as well.

Curious if some of these are the result of rebounds off shots taken from deeper out/deflections but it does paint a raw picture that teams should attack the net more rather than try to set up the shots from the point.
