Episode 51: The Alex Ovechkin Of The 2nd Unit

Arik Parnass makes his return to the show to discuss the recent Hockey Analytics Conference held in Ottawa (which he attended in person), and how the tracking companies cropping up these days will eventually change the way we analyze the game.

We also chat about his recent work breaking down power plays around the league. What makes the best ones ticks, and what are the best future indicators we can look for in the data?
