Quantifying Finishing Skill - Statsbomb
Does anyone see a reason this couldn’t be implemented for hockey? I know it is frequently mentioned over the course of a season that a player’s shooting percentage is elevated or depressed compared to league or career averages.
If finishing skill were indeed quantified, it could help identify if that variance is likely correct, and potentially to what degree. Furthermore, couldn’t we estimate the xG lift from these players taking a shot if finishing skill was quantifiable?
