NHL develops iPad app to give coaches live stats during games

ESPN

In a digital age, NHL teams were still relying on analog approaches to deliver stats and data to coaches during games. One team's video coach would leave his room with 30 seconds left in a period and run out to print game summaries from NHL.com to ensure that his coaches had them ready for intermission.

"They're running around corners, printing. That's what was happening," said Chris Foster, the NHL's director of digital business development.

The coaches wanted to innovate the process, and the league listened. The SAP-NHL Coaching Insights App will begin appearing on coaches' iPads located at the benches and in the dressing rooms — which are currently used for video replays — as early as February.
