Player X Ray

This is a brand new feature as of 1/19/2013, originated here at Hold The Point.

(All games from 2013 are thumbnailed below, just click to enlarge, back button to reduce)

In a game-at-a-glance format, this info-graphic shows defense pairings, line make-ups and the roster, in combination with each players’ individual stats for the game as well as Power Play units, healthy scratches and even players on IR.

Listed are Ice times, hits, shots, plus/minus and more, letting you compare one player to the next, one line to the next, one D-pairing to the next. A quick scan tells you who had the best game, who had a rough game and who used their ice time well, while also giving you a log of line combinations for future reference. Just click to enlarge the images, and begin your own game analysis.

In this example, there are blue boxes around some of the players. Dustin Brown has a solid blue box meaning he scored a regulation time goal. He also has a dotted blue box, as do Kopitar and Richards, meaning there were 3 Kings shootout goals scored. There is no red box around any player, meaning no King scored the game-winning goal.

With these boxes, I can immediately see that the game was tied 1-1 going into a shootout, that the shootout went longer than three shooters and that the Kings did not win this game.

Included also are ice times for each player, next to their pictures. Forward line combinations are also presented visually, as well as the defense pairings. The goalie info, the healthy scratches, the Power Play units, all this is added to an intuitive scoring summary using the colored boxes.

I created this format because I wanted to know, and keep for later reference, the decisions on line combinations, the ice time distribution including special teams play, and numbers of hits registered by each player. This info was not carried by any one source; indeed, I gather the info from 3 separate sources and combine them into this one-stop opportunity to “read between the lines.”

    Liking the X Ray format. Easy to read at a glance, but has tons of info if one decides to get more into detail. Doesn’t look crowded but has lots of stats, perfect.

  2. Mik3ysfv says:

    Great stuff. Love this whole site.

    • Player X says:

      Mik3ysfv!!! You are most welcome here, I was really hoping you would find me. Site is still developing somewhat (not meant as an excuse) cuz I only got the idea to do my own site on Jan 19, opening game. Haven’t been aggressive in getting the name out yet, but all in time…
      We have had some great conversations before and I look forward to more here wit’ yuze.

      • Mik3ysfv says:

        Seriously, this site has a fantastic format. I love it.
        I have been a Kings fan since ’78-’79, and I promise, no drinking rants (I don’t drink all that much any more). I see you and your responses in all sections, but which section do you prefer to have comments posted? I mean to talk back and forth?
        Anyway, until then keep this site up I freaking love it

        • Mik3ysfv says:

          oh yeah, I have a bad habit of making multiple posts when I find typos or errors in the voice dictation. I will try to curtail that. Congratulations, man. This site is freaking awesome.

        • Player X says:

          Post anywhere man, comments are welcome wherever you are inspired to respond. Don’t worry about ranting, either, I am not exactly known for keeping things short myself. Rave on!

  3. PalmSpringsKingsFan says:

    I like it

    • Player X says:

      Welcome, thanks for stopping in. Handy tool, huh, I use it all the time when Sutter makes decisions, looking back at old ideas… Imagine what goes on in that guys head.

  4. bluedon23 says:

    Like the player x ray. Recently there has been a percentage (top right above the shoots L or R handed. Not sure what these percentages represent? Thx

    • bluedon23 says:

      just figured out the percentage is faceoff win percentage. But you might want to add that in your description of how the player x ray works.

      • Player X says:

        Will do. Thanks for the suggestion, yes I added it in mid-season. Still evolving a little bit, I sorta look at this whole season as an experiment, a testing thing. Any feedback is good, positive or negative, so thanks.
        When I do articles, or have questions, I go back and look a them for shortcuts to stats, and if my question isn’t answered, I change or add stuff.
        I also just started including the Power Play goal-scorers, that was not in there before, so I’ve been going back and changing past X Rays.
        Thanks for the interest, and welcome.
