Anybody that follows junior hockey and has a modicum of interest in statistics much prefers the Quebec League's version of the statistics page. Unlike the Western and Ontario Hockey League websites, the Q offers shots on goal and faceoffs, making it much easier to judge a player's contribution.
Those player pages just got even better. The QMJHL added yesterday several changes to their player pages, including a more streamlined look featuring a plug-in that allows users to toggle between player statistics pages and game-by-game tabs much quicker. The site kept up the traditional "Media" tab present on the player pages for WHL and OHL players, but that has been expanded to include more than recent stories.
The look is very good, and also very useful. There's a new "Detailed Stats" page that includes player splits for home and road, months of the year, as well as head-to-head records against opponents. Did you know that against the Quebec Remparts in 1984, Mario Lemieux scored 18 goals and 42 points in seven games for the Laval Voisins, or that Patrick Roy went 3-16-0 on the road with the Granby Bisons in 1985? I can't think of many situations where split junior statistics of Hall of Fame players would be of great importance, but it's nice that the QMJHL has collected all this information. Tab "Career Highs" or "Records" for a list of achievements by both of those players. That's information you used to have to dig high and low for, but now Roy's player page comes with all sorts of useful information.Read More »from QMJHL website’s new player pages are now even more superior to WHL and OHL counterparts
