Single-Season Player Projections for 2017-2018

 

The list below projects NHL player performances for the 2016-2017 season. The current model uses past NHL performance as a predictor based on age, the number of seasons in the league and actual performance in several key categories (therefore, many 2017-2018 rookie players will not be included):

1) Average Time On Ice

2) Shots per 60

3) Assists per 60

4) Shooting Percentage

5) Games Played

 

 

 

These projections were made on September 26th, and will not be updated once the season begins, because the randomness of the game is included as part of the forecasting process, and adjusting for in-season events would defeat the purpose of trying to predict what will happen.

 

The list below shows only the top-thirty projected scorers. To see the entire list of more than 850 players, please become a member of Hockey Prophets and support the work that we do!! Thank you.
