Data Analyst, Nashville Predators
MATT PFEFFER, Data Analyst of the Nashville Predators will be joining us in November for the22nd Annual John Molson Sports Business Conference!
Matt excels at creating and developing models, databases and user platforms for hockey teams at NHL and junior hockey level. He realized his passion for hockey would be enhanced by his analytical abilities and looked to pursue a career in the field.
Matt has worked for many teams and organizations throughout his young career. He began work in the NHL and their junior affiliates as a statistical analyst – consultant for the Ottawa 67’s in 2013, the San Jose Sharks in 2014, the Canadiens de Montréal in 2015 and the Nashville Predators in early 2017. All the while, he has been doing on and off statistical analysis for Hockey Canada since 2014. Many of these roles are as a consultant, but this is extensive experience for someone so young in the industry, and clearly speaks volumes of Matt’s abilities and hunger.
This Trent University graduate is an inspiration to all young sports business students. He is proof that hard work and drive pays off even from an early age, and that anything can happen in this industry.
We look forward to having him at #JMSM17!
