The University of British Columbia x CKM Sports Management - Strategic Data Analysis

Riipen Case Study

The Company

CKM Sports Management is a hockey specific player agency. They needed learners to analyze performance data from the NHL and AHL 2017-2018.

The Institution

Professor of Economics Jonathan Graves teaches ECON 490 at The University of British Columbia. In this course, learners learn to apply data analysis methods and make evidence-based decisions.

The Challenge

Analyze data on hockey players' performance in the NHL, identify trends, and develop a predictive model that could be used to analyze the potential of players to succeed in the NHL based on their performance in other leagues abroad.

The Outcome

“Through our most recent Riipen project we now have proven statistical models that can forecast or predict a player’s performance in the NHL based on their previous performance in the KHL, SHL and Liiga. This is extremely valuable to our NHL Draft eligible Clients overseas, as well as those currently playing in those leagues trying to make the jump to the NHL.” Cliff Mander, Player Agent & CEO, CKM Sports Management
