    ANALYSIS OF THE 2004 NHL LOCKOUT’S EFFECT ON PLAYER HEIGHT AND WEIGHT by Farny, Andrew

    This paper analyzes the effects of the 2004 lockout on the current playing style of the National Hockey League (NHL). Using NHL data from before and after the 2004-2005 lockout season, this paper examines the impact a player’s height and weight has on their point share value. Through the use of Newey-West and quantile regression analysis, this paper finds that the league is shifting from heavier, more massive players to smaller and stronger players. The findings from this paper advance the current field of hockey analytics and provide new insights into future NHL player personnel decisions.
