  • When NHL players peak: Hockey metrics

    National Hockey League forwards reach their peak scoring performance at age 28 and defencemen peak at age 29, while goaltenders show little change in performance based on age, says a new study that crunched the numbers.

    Those are the key findings of a study by the UBC business school that looked at the data from the 14 regular seasons between 1997-98 and 2011-12.

    For co-author James Brander, the bottom line of their study is that "the key to winning is having good, young players."
