What percent of shots on goal hit the crossbar in hockey?

1

Penalty shots during regulation count toward the save percentage of the goalie (and toward the shooting percentage of the shooter). See for example:

http://www.hockey-reference.com/boxscores/201305270DET.html

Michael Frolik scored one of four Blackhawk goals on a penalty shot. He has a 1/2 Shooting % and Jimmy Howard has a 24/28 save statistic (not 24/27 as it would be if it didn't count) and 4 GA. You can also see that a penalty shot counts against the "Even Strength Goals Against", at least if it's not during a powerplay separately from the penalty that incurs the shot - Jimmy Howard has 3 EV GA and allowed one powerplay goal to open the scoring to Hossa.

Shootout goals do not count; for example:

Andrew Hammond has a 36/38 save statistic, for .947 sv%, despite allowing 3 goals during the shootout (out of 5...

In hockey, a shot is ruled a "shot on goal" if the puck would cross the plane created by the net and goal line. If a goaltender/player is there to block the shot from crossing the plane, it is counted as a shot on goal. In the case of a puck hitting the crossbar, it is not regarded as a shot on goal since the frame of the net is not regarded as part of the plane. It constitutes a missed shot.

Starting with the 1998-99 season, the NHL began expanded the statistics it tracks regarding on-ice actions, such as blocked shots, missed shots, time on ice, etc. This information is available in each game's event summary. Below is an example from Game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals:

If a fan wanted to see the equivalent of soccer's "shots taken" they would simply have to add up the number of attempts blocked (A/B), missed shots (MS) and shots on goal (S). Using the above reference as an example, the New Jersey...

1. Shooting (association football) – In association football, shooting is a specialized kicking technique mainly used by forwards. Shooting is easily the most common way for goals to be scored. It is done using the feet; using the head, i.e. heading the ball, is the second most common way in which goals are scored. Instep drive: This shot is done with the laces of a boot and is widely used. The ball is struck with the laces or the top part of the foot. The shot is less accurate. Swerve shot: This shot is not exclusively used in free kicks. The ball swerves in such a way that it beats the keeper, the only drawback is that it lacks great power. Curl

Yes, once again we’re dipping into analysis based around data from the passing project, highlighting some of its power and capability, I decided to delve into looking at individual shooting percentage for some players, limited to enough of a sample of games tracked for helpful analysis. It’s no secret that aside from actual RFID data or unless some tracking company makes their proprietary data available, I think this passing project offers a great leap in game analysis.

Project founder Ryan Stimson ventured into the debate onshot quality and introducing a passing metric called Passing Shot Contribution (PSC). I highly recommend that piece to everyone.

Ryan Stimson and crew (with their second data release), tracked a higher volume of Washington and Chicago games, which fortunately contain two examples in Patrick Kane and Alex Ovechkin, we’ll look at shortly. Passing has a great effect to enhance scoring.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In field hockey, ice hockey, box lacrosse, or soccer, a shot on goal is a shot that will enter the goal if it is not stopped by the goaltender. A shot on goal must result in either a goal or a save.

Every goal and every save count as shots on goal. This leads to an exception to the definition of a shot on goal. If the ball or puck hits the goal post or crossbar, ricochets off the goaltender, and into the net, it is a goal, and therefore a shot on goal, with the exception of NHL or ice hockey. However, had the goaltender not been present, the shot in question would not have resulted in a goal, and therefore would not be counted as a shot on goal.

In the NHL, a shot that is deflected wide or blocked before it reaches the goaltender is not counted as a shot on goal.

Shots that sail wide or high of the net and shots that hit the goal post or crossbar are not considered shots on goal, but are scored as shots. (In NLL...

Crosby and Letang return, Eichel with the four pointer, struggling Habs, plus more…

Hope your Christmas was one to remember. After a three-day lull without hockey, we were provided with nine games to watch, discuss, and break down on Boxing Day. Let’s blitz through the games, which included some standout stat lines and important injury updates.

Saturday marked the return of two players that have been oft-discussed in the Ramblings: Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang. Crosby scored a goal and added an assist, Letang recorded two assists, while Matthew Murray made 25 saves in a 3-1 win over the Wild. For those of us heavily invested in Penguins, let’s hope that the three days off provided a valuable mental health break and they can finally show us what they are capable of.

In spite of returning, Letang continues to be an injury magnet. He left the game briefly during the third period after taking a hit to the head from Jarret Stoll, who received a...

Shots that hit either the post or the crossbar are not considered Shots on Goal. Currently, they are quantified as a Missed Shot. These shots are included with shots that miss the net entirely; as such, they will appear in both Fenwick and Corsi totals (note that Corsi is just Fenwick plus blocked shots).

There's no way to extract these data currently.

However, we can estimate the relative frequency with which shots hit the crossbar versus shots that hit either post.

The net is 6 feet wide by 4 feet high. Since there are two posts, this means that (roughly) the crossbar is 6 linear feet and the posts are 8 linear feet.

Naively, then, one would expect that the crossbar is hit at a 3:4 ratio to the posts. However, while shooting, one typically picks one side of the net to shoot at. If you miss your shot while trying to pick a side, you're probably not going to hit the post on the other side of the goal, unless you're a very bad shooter. So really, the...

An ultimately successful shot on goal during a youth ice hockey game

In ice hockey, a shot on goal is a shot that directs the puck towards the net and either goes into the net for a goal or is stopped by the goaltender for a save.

A shot that is deflected wide or blocked by an opponent does not count as a shot on goal, rather it is recorded as a blocked shot. The player who blocks the shot is credited with a 'blocked shot', and the player who shoots the puck is credited with an 'attempt blocked'.

Shots that sail wide or high of the net and shots that hit the goalpost or crossbar are not counted as shots on goal, rather they are counted as 'missed shots'. Additionally, if a goaltender stops a puck that is going wide or high anyway, it is recorded as a 'missed shot'. Since it is not counted as a shot on goal, the goaltender does not get credit for a save.

In several sports with goalkeepers or goaltenders protecting nets or goals, a save is credited to a goaltender that stops the playing object from entering the goal. These sports include football, ice hockey, and lacrosse, among others.

In ice hockey, a goaltender is credited with a save when they prevent a shot by the opponent from entering the net. A goaltender's efficiency in stopping shots, the save percentage, is calculated as a percentage of shots stopped divided by the total number of shots on goal.

In association football, a goalkeeper who does not concede any goals during a match is said to have "kept" a clean sheet. In certain competitions awards (such as the Premier League Golden Glove and the Football League Golden Glove) are given for the player who keeps the most clean sheets during the season or the tournament.

Sporting Charts explains Shot on Goal

Not every shot directed towards the net is a shot on goal. For example, a shot that is intended towards goal but is blocked by an opponent is not a shot on goal. Any shot that is intended towards the net but misses the net or hits the posts or the crossbar is also not counted as a shot on goal. The shots on goal statistic allows for the calculation of many other NHL statistics. For example, to calculate a player's shooting percentage (a statistic measuring a player's shooting efficiency), the number of goals scored by that player is divided by the total number of shots on goal and multiplied by 100 to return a percentage. A goaltender's save percentage, one of the most important goaltender statistics, is also calculated by dividing the number of saves made over the total number of shots on goal faced.

The player who holds the NHL record for most shots on goal in a season is Phil Esposito with 550 (1970-71 season)....
