The fans have been asking for it for the past couple of years and the CIHL will give Pointstreak a good tryout this season. Attached is a breakdown from our venerable league statistician explaining some of the "pros" associated with Pointstreak. As the season progresses, we'll find out if there are "cons" as well...
Pointstreak and the Central Interior Hockey League
Fans of the Central Interior Hockey League are in for a treat when teams finally hit the ice for the 2009-2010 season. After many years of manually tallied and updated league stats, (and thanks to long time volunteer Dave Turford for all his hard work over the years), the CIHL is switching to a system that will bring the league into the 21st century of league statistical record keeping.
The new Pointstreak system will allow you the fan to search and view whatever type of league statistical information you may desire. From top goal scorers, to penalty minute leaders, from best goaltender to best winning percentages.
The system tracks all players from all teams, and with the click of a mouse, you can view the statistical season in review for your favourite player, or your favourite team. Pointstreak utilizes a series of user friendly linked pages that help you the fan quickly find the information you are searching for. As an example, from the League Standings page you can quickly locate your favourite team which when clicked upon will lead you to another page showing the entire roster of that particular team. From that page you can then click on your favourite player to find his season to date stats.
The system also gives overall league scoring leaders and goalie leaders as well as league schedules and team standings. No longer will there be debates as to how many games a player has played during the regular season. Just search the players name and all the information is instantly available, including games played. The laborious task of perusing individual websites for particular player’s information will be a thing of the past.
The Central Interior Hockey League is excited about the switch to Pointstreak and we hope, you the fan, will be most pleased with the results as well. For those who may like a sneak peek of just what the Pointsteak system has to offer, why not go to the Pointstreak hockey website located at www.pointstreak.com/hockey/ and click on any league to see how the system will work for the C.I.H.L.
It should be an exciting season, and having accurate timely statistical information will only augment the excitement to each and every game.

Let me add, as league president that we are a bit out on a limb here. This approach to stats keeping is not "inexpensive" shall we say, and making sure it works wil be challenging. Missed sheets, and we're screwed -- so all teams must keep the flow of material going, promptly and as requested.
So let's give it a go. Statsman will contact all teams with his requirements and I beg all teams to ensure his needs are met.

As most might remember, I have been bringing up pointstreak for what, 4 years? It is a very good program. I have been following other leagues that use it and know that everyone here will love it. I know it is not cheap, but it is worth every penny. Bravo to the CIHL for a very wise purchase.

Agreed... these are the kinds of places the league needs to be spending money... on real league improvements. Improvements that the fans will notice. Good job guys.... Hopefully the teams that have previously been slow with games sheets will not ruin this for everyone. Eventually, this will hopefully lead to the next level of pointstreak where games are updated live from the rink so fans can follow games from thier computers.
Go Stamps Go!

I agree, pointstreak is the way to go! I spent a few years in the lower mainland and called alot of hockey games while there. All the stats were fed into a computer screen right at the timekeepers bench, and immediately posted to the web. This allowed me to gather updated info on any team and individual in the league of my choosing, before our next featured game. I'm hoping the CIHL follows suit in the not to distant future. This is a good start though!
