by Staff Writer / Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton Oilers fans and analytics experts have a chance to become insiders with the team, help the team win games and capture some cool prizes in a unique contest. The club is opening its analytical information vault to launch Oilers Hackathon 2.0. Contestants will look at the data and determine the best methodology to solve questions posed by the Oilers.

In addition to bragging rights and a chance to peruse and develop the Oilers data from as far back as 1979, the grand prizes include a position on the analytics team and a behind the scenes game night experience including watching the game from the catwalk with hockey management!

Online registration is open until December 21 and participants have until February 15, 2013, to submit their proposed methodology. It will be measured against real game results.

The Contest is open to Entrants aged 18 and older who are residents of Canada, excluding Quebec. Anyone outside this territory is welcome to receive the data and participate for fun, however they won’t be eligible to enter the Contest or receive a prize.
