If you have not heard, myself and three Nations Network compatriots (Josh Weissbock, Moneypuck, and Rhys Jessop in alpha order) have been working on improving draft analytics.
The project has been going on for well over a year now and is still in progress; however, we have started to release where we are at currently with Prospect Cohort Success (PCS).
Weissbock released an introduction to PCS percentage and PCS points per game to the masses. Essentially it looks at the closest comparable players in age, height, and scoring for the same league and then calculates what percentage of those cohorts made the NHL for 200 or more games played, as well as the cohorts combined points per game.
PCS can be used to look at potential draft selections, but also to look at player development.
Let's take a look at PCS for the Winnipeg Jets first round picks.
