The National Hockey League is in many ways having a trial run for the World Cup of Hockey, and while it's not the first tournament of it's kind, there is certainly a new feeling surrounding this particular event, especially if it becomes a regular occurrence.

On Tuesday the NHL revealed that it was also tracking some brand new statistics for the World Cup, and some of these are pretty in depth and some of them are just plain awesome. Through social media the NHL released a short little video that gives you an idea of what kind of new statistics are being compiled by the league.

It's unclear if the NHL will continue to track these as we head into the 2016-2015 regular season, but one would imagine if they are showing off these new more in-depth statistics it's because they intend to continue to do so.
