in NCAA Ice Hockey

Attendees will learn to identify ways in which these differences can be overcome and discuss the path to widespread adoption of hockey analytics at the collegiate and amateur levels.
This fall, Kathryn Yates will enter her third full season working with the Boston University men's ice hockey team in an analytics capacity.
