The fine folks at College Hockey Inc released a new, customizable statistics platform today that allows users to set filters to find ultra-specific statistical information about college hockey that was impossible to do before.
Here's a few stats that College Hockey Inc. published as examples:
- Nebraska-Omaha has scored the most goals in the first minute of a period this year (6); New Hampshire has scored the most in the last minute (9).
- Denver has the nation’s highest scoring defense corps with 81 points, 29% more than the next closest teams.
- Boston College’s Steven Whitney and Colorado College’s Alexander Krushelnyski lead the nation with 15 points each in the third period and overtime.

It's a really cool toy for anyone that loves college hockey, and especially those that love numbers. We're still in the process of playing around with it, and should have some interesting stats and trends of our own in the future.
