Martin St. Louis uses advanced statistics to manage his training

Martin St. Louis uses advanced statistics to manage his training

Advanced statistics haven't always been an important area in Montreal.

Fortunately, with the arrival of Jeff Gorton and Christopher Boucher, in particular, this aspect of the game has become even more important, to the point where the team ranks well among others in the Bettman arena.

Although advanced statistics are not unanimous, they are frequently used by journalists to show a player's strengths. But these statistics are mainly used by teams. This is the case for the Canadian who uses it for training.

As stated in a text by Arpon Basu The athlete, Martin St. Louis takes these numbers seriously to determine whether or not he is tiring his men out too much.

Therefore, the coach does not need to rely only on his own vision, but can also rely on facts.

Adam Douglas, Director of Performance and Sports Science, sits on the bench during most of the club's training and has access to statistics that monitor the players' physical performance. This performance is necessary to determine whether players have a high or low level of fatigue.

During morning training or the day before a match, this performance is very useful because obviously we don't want the athletes to be too tired before their next match.

Note that MSL also uses these statistics to build its practices. Therefore, he is fully aware of the energy intensity required by a particular exercise. This technology was useful to my coaches when I was younger…

Therefore, it is used to modify practices on the spot, but also to plan them. We are a long way from the years when advanced statistics were frowned upon by more experienced coaches, in particular. After all, it's a relatively new technology and understandably it can be intimidating.

But St. Louis is not an old-school coach and advanced statistics are part of his daily life. He makes good use of that and in the end, that's what matters. Technology is there to help, not to hurt.
