Chicago Hockey Analytics
This repository will contain a set of analyses of player ability in the NHL. It is designed to be a hub for experimentation, demonstration, and teaching about both data mining and hockey analysis.
The repository contains R code to first pull the relevant data from nhl.com (using the nhlscrapar tool from A.C. Thomas), and then do a series of analyses using sparse regularized regression. Details are provided in the README inside the data, code, and results folders respectively. Note that the code linked here is licensed under the GNU Lesser Public License.
