Fenwick Calculator

Equation

In hockey, Fenwick is an advanced hockey statistic that calculates as follows:
Fenwick = (Shorts on Target For + Missed Shots) – (Shots on Target Against + Missed Shots Against)
All stats are taken from even strength, 5 on 5 play.

Example

If a team has the following stats:
For – Shots: 1,091 – Missed Shots: 417
Against – Shots: 918 – Missed Shots: 422
Their Fenwick would be calculated as:
Fenwick = (1,091 + 417) – (918 + 422)
Fenwick = 1508 – 1340
Fenwick = 168
This team’s Fenwick would be 168.

What is Fenwick?

Fenwick is an advanced statistic used in hockey that compares the total number of offensive and defensive “actions.”
Is it similar to Corsi, however, does not include blocked shot statistics.

What counts as a “Shot for” or “Shot against”?

In hockey, a “shot for” is a shot attempt that is either stopped by the goaltender or goes in the net.
A “shot against” is the opposite.

What counts as a “Missed shot for” or “Missed shot against”?

A “missed shot” is when a team shoots the puck towards the net, and it does not go in the net and is not stopped by the goaltender. A shot that is made and hits the net post or crossbar (and does not go in the net) are considered a “missed shot.”
