Curious to know the busiest day to rent a goalie?

 

With over 3000 games successfully saved because of Puck App goalies, we decided to do some digging in to which day of the week was most common for renting a goalie. Any guesses?

 

The overwhelming answer was Thursday.  Thursday was consistently the busiest day on the app, followed by Wednesday. Saturday’s were the least likely day for a team needing a rental.

 

Why do so many teams lose their regular goalie on a Thursday night? Here are our guesses as to why:

 

  1. Most teams want to play their league games during the middle of the week (Tues, Wed & Thurs) so there are more games being played.
  2. By Thursday, the work from the job has potentially piled up causing goalies to stay late at work or are too tired from work so they miss their regular skate.
  3. People often take Friday off and leave on vacation on Thursday.
  4. Most goalies watch The Bachelor on Thursdays.

 

Maybe to save money on rentals this winter, try to pick a Friday or Saturday ice slot. If not, we’ll still be here for you.
