Sport Management seniors Joey Weinberg ’17 and Colby Conetta ’17 participated in the Rochester Institute of Technology Hockey Analytics Conference on September 10, 2016.
At the conference, hockey analytics experts made presentations about their research and findings. Information presented included video analysis, statistics, and data visualization techniques. A coaches panel included two Division I men’s ice hockey coaches and three Division III coaches, who talked about their uses of analytics in coaching and player evaluation.
Weinberg and Conetta’s research was titled “Estimating the Impact of Ice Conditions on Scoring, Shots, and Shot Attempts in the NHL.” The students, who are members of Sport Management’s Sabermetrics Club, worked on the research project under the guidance of Sport Management professor Dr. Rodney Paul.
