Hockey is BACK!!!
Hockey is finally back. The only sport that still values physical play, when it is paired with talent of course. The Physicality Index looks at the number of hits, blocked shots, and fighting majors a team produces per game and benchmarks that against the league average. An index of 1 means the team is producing average physicality on the ice; below 1, less; above 1, more. By no means is this metric meant to say that only fighting, hitting, and blocking shot are actions involving physicality, rather these actions are indicative of teams that are physical. So please enjoy the rankings and thank God hockey is back.
