What is PDO (SPSV%)?
PDO (or SPSV%) is the sum of a team’s shooting percentage and save percentage.
A player’s PDO is calculated using the team save and shooting percentages of the team only while that player is on the ice.
A team’s PDO is calculated for the entire team’s performance.
PDO = Team’s Shooting Percentage + Team’s Save Percentage
- “Shooting Percentage” is the percentage of shots a team makes that count as goals.
- “Save Percentage” is the percentage of saves a team makes.
A team has a shooting percentage of 11.2% and a save percentage of 87.3%.
PDO = 11.2% + 87.3%
PDO = 98.5%
Therefore, this team’s PDO would be 98.5%, or 0.985
