**SALO** is an up-to-date approach to assessing individual players with shooting data.

SALO uses an explicit Bayesian model to estimate skaters’ underlying *ability* to cause net shots on goal.

This means SALO achieves some things that (adjusted) count stats can’t:

- Fully control for
*other players on ice* - Intelligently correct for
*individual sample size* - Quantify
*uncertainty*about point-like player estimates - Project future years with
*survivor bias*mitigated

SALO’s model is designed to be improved over time and account for more aspects of the context in which skaters play.

You can:

- view estimated individualized shots-for percentages for the past few years;
- view projected percentages for next year;
- read an in-depth explanation of the model, or a concise write-up of the math;
- see answers to some anticipated questions.
