Goalie Stats Explained

Goalie Stats are broken down into two sections, Career Stats, and Year Stats to make finding the stats you're looking for easy. 

Career Stats are where you will see all of the years and seasons that the goalie participated in, while Year, is where you will be able to see how this player performed in past years.

How do we Calculate Stats

Goals Against Average (GAA

Formula: goalsAgainst *(gameLength / sum(goalieShifts))

*The GAA statistic uses the period lengths that are set out in the season/division settings for the game length. 

Save Percentage (SV%)

Formula: shotsAgainst / goalsAgainst

This is calculated by dividing the number of saves, by the number of shots on goal. Although the statistic is called "Save Percentage", it is given in a decimal.

How goalie wins, losses and ties are calculated

A goalie receives a win, tie or loss if they are on the ice when either the game-winning or game-tying goal is scored.

Only 1 goalie per team per game can be credited with a win, loss or tie.


Game-Winning Goal: After the final score has been determined, the goal which leaves the winning team one goal ahead of its opponent is the game-winning goal.

Example: If Team A beats Team B 8-3, the player scoring the fourth goal for Team A receives credit for the game-winning goal. The goalie on the ice for team A when Team A's fourth goal is scored is credited with a win. The goalie on the ice for Team B when Team A's fourth goal is scored is credited with a loss.

Game-Tying Goal: If a game ends in a tie, the final goal scored in the game is the game-tying goal.

Example: If a game ends in a tie, the goalies that were on the ice when the final goal was scored are credited with a tie.
