SUDBURY, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Monday that they have entered into a partnership for the 2021-22 season, with InStat, a statistical analysis and video scouting company.
The InStat platform is currently used by hockey leagues, federations and organizations world wide.

“INSTAT will provide each of our players with post-game video and statistical analysis of their game performance,” added Mazzuca. “Each of our team coaches will also be able to use the video and analytical reports as a teaching tool and the teams will be able to use video clips in their respective social media posts.”
Mazzuca went on to provide: “The NOJHL takes great pride in our various initiatives, be it our Concussion Safety Program or our Talk Today Program, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association, which promotes positive mental health while supporting individuals who may find themselves in crisis. Our agreement with InStat is just another example of our ongoing commitment to our coaches, players and officials for the betterment of the NOJHL.”
In discussing the new partnership, InStat’s North American director, Mark Yates, provided: “I want to thank the NOJHL, especially commissioner Robert Mazzuca, for this opportunity to work together.”
