xG Rates

Welcome to the 2020-21 NHL lookahead charts!

Here, you're seeing players listed with their 2021 team but placed on the scatterplot(s) using xG data (via moneypuck.com) for each skater relative to their 2020 teammates.

If a player generated more quality shots per hour when on-ice than their average teammate, they'll be to the right of the chart.

If a player allowed less shot quality per hour when on-ice than their average teammate, they'll be on the top-half of the chart.

If a player did both, they're probably Dylan DeMelo.

Enjoy!
