Vancouver based Drive Hockey Analytics is please to announce a new service partner for the Ottawa, bringing the Drive Hockey Tracking System to teams and leagues in the capital region.
VANCOUVER, 17 November, 2022 / Drive Hockey Analytics’ advanced tracking technology will soon be in rinks in the Ottawa region. The company has signed Samuel King as a regional service partner, the first east of the Prairies.
The Drive Hockey Tracking system uses an array of sensors around the rink, along with player tracking sensors to gather more than 3000 data points per second. The company uses proprietary AI to parse the data into meaningful analytics for players and coaches.
AI driven analytics technology is rapidly becoming a key element in professional sports and is used to improve player and team competitiveness, engage media and fans, for scouting, and in gaming. The NHL has recently begun using similar tech. Never before has pro-level technology been available to amateur levels, where arguably, it can have the most benefit to players and coaches who are developing skills.
“We are excited to have Samuel join our mission of bringing pro-level analytics to amateur hockey”, states Drive CEO, Mike Dahlstedt. “The next generation of pros need access to the sort tools and development systems that used by the NHL and pros today. Drive Hockey is making that pro-level tracking and analytics available to amateurs right now.”
“I’m excited to join Drive Hockey and work with other forward thinking hockey minds. I look forward to making cutting edge hockey analytics available to players and coaches at an amateur level,” states Samuel.
Drive Regional Partners provide tracking services for hockey teams or any level, which includes game tracking, evaluations and combines, practice tracking, and player benchmarking. Teams and leagues are also able to purchase their own tracking systems.
