The British Columbia Hockey League has extended its partnership agreement with InStat Hockey for the 2021-2022 season. The new partnership includes a league-wide deal with the BCHL’s member teams. 

InStat is used by league and federation offices, coaches, scouts and management as a data and communication tool assisting in coaching processes, player development, statistical analysis and video scouting. At the team level, coaches and players can receive detailed game-by-game analytical reports, player shifts, and emailed web links all corresponding to data-specific video. 

“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with InStat,” said BCHL Executive Director Steven Cocker. “The platform has proven to be an invaluable part of our teams’ teaching and development process, while acting as a timesaver to give our coaches more time with their athletes. We look forward to building our relationship even further.”

With InStat, coaches will receive team statistics and individual player data for each game, including time on ice, shots, scoring chances, faceoffs, hits, saves and more advanced stats such as CORSI and xG. The league and its teams will also have the ability to use the video of teams and players from various other leagues worldwide, for the purpose of scouting/recruiting and player development. 

“We could not be more proud to not only continue, but also to expand on our partnership with the BCHL for another season,” said Mark Yates, director of North America for InStat. “Considering the many challenges over the last year, we are grateful to have had the chance to show how we can be an asset to the league, and even more grateful to prove our value again with all the teams.”

“We strive to be the best partners we can be to the BCHL and its member teams.”
