A great deal of research has been done on the quantitative indicators used in hockey player evaluation, but for the most part, the analysis of qualitative factors has been elusive. Until this book. Hockey Players' Personality Contribution to Team Performance examines many of the statistical tools and quantitative measures used to assess hockey players—such as goals, assists, and save percentages—and then moves beyond this with new research to help measure a player’s qualitative characteristics—or “spirit”—with an objective, scientific approach. Based on extensive interviews and research with both Canadian and Swiss hockey players, Hunter reveals six key themes or characteristics that contribute to a hockey player’s success as a “team” or “character” player—including what happens during a stoppage in play, on the bench, or in the dressing room. From these, he then offers a Player Assessment Form as a practical tool for hockey coaches, scouts, and team assistants (as well as for coaches in other team sports) to measure players’ characteristics and strengths that have previously been hard to evaluate. Informative and innovative, Hockey Player Contribution to Team Performance will appeal to all with an interest in the science of sports statistics and evaluation.
