New features for the 2018/19 season.

After a period of deep dormancy we welcome the 2018/19 on our website with three major changes:

1. MoreHockeyStats is now a network of sites:

  • - the unusual statistics from the NHL for the league, the teams, the players, the coaches and the draft.
  • - the Elo ratings for teams, coaches and players, in general and for particular stats and situations.
  • - the errors we discovered while crawling and testing the NHL data.
2. All our data is now available through a sort of API. When a table is displayed, there is a set of links on how you can access the data:

  • JSON - receive the data displayed in the table as a JSON via direct link. 
  • CSV - receive the data in a CSV table.
  • Table - display the data as a pure HTML table with a direct link.
  • Link - direct link to the results displayed.
These links have a systemic structure and thus can be crawled by a bot.

3. Most of our tables now feature links to personal cards for teams, players, coaches and even the rinks. These cards display the visual changes to the stat displayed in the table for the particular team, player etc. We welcome ideas for the cards in the pages that do not have these cards yet. Here's a sample playercard:

Welcome, and have a great 2018/19 hockey season.
