Our Data Sources

In our quest to obtain the most comprehensive data coverage for the available sources we harvested the following data:
  • Player data obtained entirely from NHL.com
  • Game boxscores between 1987 and 2015, HTML files, from NHL.com
  • Game boxscores in 2015, JSON files, from NHL.com
  • Other data files, such as Play-By-Play, Event Summary et al., from NHL.com
  • Manually copied partial data for about twenty games from ESPN.go.com
  • Manually copied data for about ten games from FlyersHistory.com
  • Manually copied complementing information from HockeyDB.com and Hockey-Reference.com
  • Online archives of newspapers USA Today and New York Times
Learn more about the breakdown of the data on our Data Summary page.

We welcome data cooperation. We are willing to provide our raw and parsed data source files in exchange for the ones that we do not have, e.g. the parseable boxscores from the years prior to 1987.
