Who keeps +/- stats for NAHL games. I ask because I have noticed several errors. This year alone, my son was on the ice for four goals for which he did not get a plus, and given a minus for two goals against when he was not on the ice.
I assume the refs give credit for goals and assists, which is also a problem (but not as bad). This weekend a kid was credited for a goal when he was not even on the ice. And some refs don't seem capable of figuring out who should get the second assist.
Perhaps this will all even out in the end, but I have noticed a striking number of errors.
Similar experience on a NAHL team, even coach has been complaining about it. We have been wondering who keeps track. Apparently the only statistics that serious scouts look at is in Instat - most colleges and pro organizations use that program and it is more accurate.
Does Instat keep plus/minus?
My son played in USPHL Premier as a 16 year old, he scored 5 goals in 12 games, was officially credited with zero. 3 were breakaways..lol. Then a NAHL team says to him, your production should be better in USPHL, he says, it is, I just dont get credit for anything I do. Eventually went onto NA and then USHL, but the NA records keeping was not very good either.
You are aware when they say that it’s them really saying your not very good we just don’t want to tell you that we are passing on you unless a few other kids tell us no.
If your in the usphl or EHL yes you will need 30+ points at least but if your in ncdc or Nahl that will be good enough for D3
Get yourself HockeyTV, clip it all, make your own videos to send to coaches. It's the only thing that doesn't lie! Disgree, we have seen many players from USPHL Premier go to D3 schools after aging out.
I personally heard a D3 coach decline a starting usphl forward last year, I asked why and he said because he wasn't at least a point per game, and he was going to pick up someone who was.
So yes stats matter there.
Congrats to your son.
However, I do agree with the previous poster - interesting that according to NCAA statistics over 98% do NOT play D1, but somehow the parents of those 2 players out of 100 are on this board posting and complaining.
The parents of the other 98 players have lives of their own...thus not on dbored
Can coaches in the USPHL have the stats corrected with the league if they are missed? How does that work?
Someone on staff - instat as well.
