Each month we’ll give a shout out to one NHL team’s coaching staff for pulling out ahead of the pack.

The month of January 2020 goes to the Columbus Blue Jackets coaching staff, including John Tortorella (Head Coach), Brad Larsen, Brad Shaw, andKenny McCudden (Assistant Coaches), Manny Legace (Goaltending Coach), Jim Corsi (Goaltending Development Coach), and Dan Singleton (Video Coach). Congrats on taking the January 2020 Coaching Staff of the Month award!

9-2-0 record
.818 Points %
3 Shutouts
85.7 Penalty Kill %
6-game winning streak

How’s the scoring work? We look at 5 categories for how teams are doing:

  1. Wins
  2. Points Percentage
  3. Shutouts
  4. Power Play Percentage
  5. Penalty Kill Percentage

Then we take the top ten teams from each category that month and assign points based on how they finished in that respective category. Combine that with any subjective categories, like a really long winning streak, and we determine which coaching staff is most deserving of the title each month.
