PowerScout Hockey, a division of PowerScout Sports, is the industry leader in optical tracking technology for hockey. We work with NHL teams to provide the most advanced performance analysis ever made available in hockey.
This technology was pioneered in 1995 by our partners Prozone Sports who have set the standard in the performance analysis industry. Prozone brought the technology to market for European ‘soccer’ (football) and have since worked with over 300 clubs and organizations worldwide, including the world’s top professional sports teams such as Real Madrid FC, Manchester United FC and Arsenal FC, to name a few.
Using state-of-the-art ultra high resolution Sony cameras combined with advanced proprietary software, this technology was adapted to hockey in 2013. It tracks, tags and maps every player and puck location 10 times per second, providing the context to every single moment and virtually all ice-events in hockey. Teams can measure strengths and weaknesses of players in all area of performance including fitness, passing, receiving, possession, shooting, and much more.
NHL coaching staff, scouting staff and team management are provided with performance analysis on existing and prospect players, confirming their instincts and providing unbiased insights in ways that have never been possible before now – a first in the history of the NHL.
