Get Your Game Analyzed Like The Pros
We at Elevate Goaltending have 4 years and counting of professional hockey experience. We have had our games broken down and analyzed in many different ways. With that experience, we have formulated a pro style game break down and analytics package that will give every goalie at every level and all ages more incite to their game. Each category has one or more advantages, and when broken down and analyzed, it will give every goalie the tools to understand and ultimately elevate their game to the next level.
Our Analytic Categories
The categories we focus on in our analytical break down of your game are: Game Review, Shot Location, Royal Road, Pre-Pass Shot, Net Front Presence, Deflections, Rebounds, Team Strength on Goal, Goal Location, and Shot Quality. We have found that when these categories are broken down, Ran though our unique algorithm and understood, they can help each goalie understand their game better. After we are done with our analysis, the information will be provided in an easily understood analysis breakdown (Using Charts And Graphs) that will help us give each goalie more understanding and knowledge to help elevate their game.
We use the Quality Chances stat to understand the quality of shots a goalie encounters in a game. To get the quality of the chance on a goalie, we have devised an algorithm that takes into account Shot location, Pre-Shot Pass, Net Front Screen, Deflection, and Rebound Shot categories. This helps a goalie gain in-game awareness of potential shooting/scoring threats and build better in-game management skills. When analyzed over a season, it helps track how consistently a goalie makes Low, Medium, and High Quality saves, which tracks overall consistency.
Straight Shot maybe our smallest chart on our analytic sheet but it is possibly the most important chart. This provides the data on how many straight shots (no deflection, no screen, and no pass) a goalie faces and their save percent on these shots. To be an elite goalie in the NHL, your clean save percentage must be 96.0% or higher over a season. Are you an elite goalie at your level? This stat will show you.
Each individual game will be linked to our season totals sheet for you to see up to date stats and data during your season. At the top of your season total page you, can compare your actual goal against & save percentage vs expected save percentages bases on the quality of chances against. We also will compare your goals against average and save percentage against the averages/past averages at your league/level. Let's elevate your game!
In conclusion, our analysis is geared in every way to give all goaltenders easy to understand data and information to improve their game. Every goaltender is different and has their own unique style, but with our analytical breakdown added with our video break down, our goal is to help every goalie understand their game, how to improve their game, and ways to be more consistent to ultimately elevate their game to the highest level.

Game Review takes what actually happened in your game (goals against and save %) and compares them to an expected goals against and expected save % that is based on game data gathered from our analytic spreadsheet. This then takes the difference of the actual and expected save% as well as the actual and expected goals against, then grades your game.
Shot By Location
Shot By Location will help all goalies understand and see visually from where they are getting a majority of their shots. We have 9 shot locations in this category and each location will show your save percentage and also compare that save percentage to an average save percentage for that location (based on league/age averages), then highlight that area accordingly. The color green for above average, orange for average, and red for below the average range. This category provides a goalie with data so they can visually see and understand areas that may need improvement and/or areas of strength to help analyze and understand a goalies over all game.
Total Chances By Quality
Royal Road is a great little know stat. A Royal Road chance against occurs when a player below the top of the circle has the puck and the puck then crosses the center-line of the ice either from a pass or from the player skating across the center- line and a shot occurs. These chances do not always happen in abundance in a game, but they are often the best scoring chances a team can create against a goalie. This category will also be highlighted accordingly by comparing it to save percent averages for the type of shot against. The color green for above average, orange for average, and red for below the average range. Learning what this stat means and how it affects a goalies save ability, it will absolutely elevate every goalie’s performance on the ice.
When a goalie sees a shot with no pre-shot pass, their save percentage should be noticeably higher than when there is a single or multiple passes. Every pre-shot pass situation drastically changes the dynamic of the shot and each one is different. By tracking this stat it allows a goalie to effectively understand the impact each pass situation has on a shot/chance against.
When talking about deflections there are tons of different ways a puck can be deflected---sometimes even by your own teammates. When tracking this stat we are looking for consistent saves. By better understanding what deflections are giving a goalie trouble, we can break them down and learn better situational awareness and positioning, especially when combining with the video breakdown.
Net Front Presence
Net Front Presence or screens is one obstacle that many goalies struggle with. By tracking this stat then calculating a goalie’s save percentage, we will be able to understand how well a goalie tracks pucks and battles to see through screens. Seeing pucks through screens and traffic is an essential skill to master.
Shots from Rebounds
Rebounds and rebound control are in a lot of ways the difference between a good goalie and a great goalie. If you want to be a great goalie, this is a stat you should really pay attention to. The better rebound control you have by absorbing/covering pucks or deflecting pucks out of play, the less high danger shots a goalie will have.
Team Strength on Goal
When you better understand the situation in which goals are scored (PK, PP, Even), the better you understand your current team and your game. The better you understand your game, the more you can hone in on areas to improve, refine and ultimately elevate your game to its top level consistently. Consistent play is what every coach wants out of their goaltender, and it should be every goaltender’s goal to be consistently on their A-game each and every game throughout the entire season.
Goals by Location Scored
Goal By Location breaks down what part of the net each goal is scored into an easy to understand chart and graph. Better understanding where a goalie is getting scored on will provide the goalie with the ability to focus in on these areas and improve their overall game.
