Pointstreak Hits Hockeytown
May 2nd, 2002
Vancouver, BC - Pointstreak.com Inc. is pleased to announce its first installation in the state of Michigan with a new installation at the Joe Dumars Fieldhouse in Detroit, MI.
"Detroit, and Michigan in general, is hockey crazy" said Gregg Sayer, Vice President and CMO of Pointstreak, "We're very excited about the installation of our system at the Joe Dumars Fieldhouse. We anticipate good things to happen because of it. Word is really starting to spread about Pointstreak and our presence in Detroit will only help increase the awareness of our system."
Pointstreak is one of the most advanced statistical and league management services for hockey leagues in the world. Pointstreak's "Electronic Gamesheet System" uses touch-screen computers to replace a league's paper gamesheet. Instead of writing a goal or penalty down on paper, the scorekeeper enters it on a touch-screen terminal. Once the goal or penalty is entered, it is transmitted instantly to the Internet, where it can be viewed by players, parents, fans, league administrators and rink operators.
The Joe Dumars Fieldhouse is home to the Detroit Roller Hockey
Association (DRHA), one of the largest roller hockey leagues in
the United States. The DRHA will be using Pointstreak's system to
streamline the management of its 315 teams. To find out more about
Pointstreak's system, or to access the DRHA statistics, visit www.pointstreak.com.
