Winnipeg Jets Player Usage Chart

Rob Vollman was nice enough to send us a Jets player usage chart for the 2013 season.

For those unfamiliar with these, there's an explanation Rob provides some background:

Player Usage charts show how players are used and how they performed at

even-strength by mapping the percentage of shifts they started in the

offensive zone (horizontal axis) against the average quality of their

competition, as measured in attempted shots (vertical axis), with sized and

coloured bubbles denoting how well the team performed with them on the

ice relative to everyone else. Every chart includes supplementary thoughts

from expert analysts.

2011-12 NHL Player Usage Chart by Rob Vollman


It is not a big surprise to see Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien logging tough minutes.

Jim Slater and company continue to get buried in the defensive zone. It is clear that Noel wants his top faceoff man taking the majority of his defensive zone draws.

Paul Postma and Grant Clitsome haven't been trusted to do much heavy lifting.

Ron Hainsey and Mark Stuart have been getting middle minutes.

The constant line juggling has made some of these numbers tough to discern. It will be interesting to see how usage changes throughout the season.
