Graduation impact from 2015 to 2016

Practice for the 2016 season has begun and teams around the country are doing an inventory of who is returning this year, who they lost to graduation, and ultimately what the impact is going to be (actually, I'm sure most of them already did it in the fall -- but nonetheless!).  Where did they lose a lot? Goal scorers? Faceoffs? Their key defensive players?

To help answer these questions across the entire division, I put together this little tool/visualization with data from 5by5. It's interactive, so you can click around on it and see which players have actually left (assuming the data from the NCAA is accurate). (direct link)
