The NHL as 10 Players

A few days ago I ran across¬†Jack Hagley’s visualization¬†of the world as 100 people.

I thought it was an interesting visualization and decided to try something similar with NHL stats. Since there were 886 active players in the 2013-14 season, I figured cutting it down to 100 was a little underwhelming, so here is the NHL as played by 10 players:As 10

Stay tuned for a goalie version.


Baseball Stats Illustrated – Batting

Baseball statistics can get pretty confusing, especially with the propagation of more advanced stats and acronyms. Here’s my attempt at illustrating a few scenarios and how they affect different batting statistics and ratios:Baseball Stats

There was lots of interest in my last post and I got some good feedback (thanks Reddit) about some additional details and clarifications I should include. People also really wanted to see stats for Soccer and Rugby as comparables. Here is an updated version which now includes:

  • Soccer, Rugby, and a few other sports
  • Much more distinction in Football and Baseball positions
  • Players’ average age – shown as the size of each circle, as well as written out (since circle sizes are difficult to compare)
