Game

GET https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/game/ID/feed/live Returns all data about a specified game id including play data with on-ice coordinates and post-game details like first, second and third stars and any details about shootouts. The data returned is simply too large at often over 30k lines and is best explored with a JSON viewer.

GET https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/game/ID/boxscore Returns far less detail than feed/live and is much more suitable for post-game details including goals, shots, PIMs, blocked, takeaways, giveaways and hits.

GET http://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/game/ID/content Complex endpoint returning multiple types of media relating to the game including videos of shots, goals and saves.

GET https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/game/ID/feed/live/diffPatch?startTimecode=yyyymmdd_hhmmss Returns updates (like new play events, updated stats for boxscore, etc.) for the specified game ID since the given startTimecode. If the startTimecode param is missing, returns an empty array.

Game IDs

The first 4 digits identify the season of the game (ie. 2017 for the 2017-2018 season). The next 2 digits give the type of game, where 01 = preseason, 02 = regular season, 03 = playoffs, 04 = all-star. The final 4 digits identify the specific game number. For regular season and preseason games, this ranges from 0001 to the number of games played. (1271 for seasons with 31 teams (2017 and onwards) and 1230 for seasons with 30 teams). For playoff games, the 2nd digit of the specific number gives the round of the playoffs, the 3rd digit specifies the matchup, and the 4th digit specifies the game (out of 7).


Schedule

GET https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/schedule Returns a list of data about the schedule for a specified date range. If no date range is specified, returns results from the current day.

Modifiers

?expand=schedule.broadcasts Shows the broadcasts of the game

?expand=schedule.linescore Linescore for completed games

?expand=schedule.ticket Provides the different places to buy tickets for the upcoming games

?teamId=30 Limit results to a specific team. Team ids can be found through the teams endpoint

?startDate=2018-01-09 Start date for the search

?endDate=2018-01-12 End date for the search

GET https://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/schedule?teamId=30 Returns Minnesota Wild games for the current day.

    "description": "History: The Stanley Cup, the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America, was donated by Frederick Arthur, Lord Stanley of Preston and son of the Earl of Derby, in 1893. Lord Stanley purchased the trophy for 10 guineas ($50 at that time) for presentation to the amateur hockey champions of Canada. Since 1906, when Canadian teams began to pay their players openly, the Stanley Cup has been the symbol of professional hockey supremacy. It has been contested only by NHL teams since 1926-27 and has been under the exclusive control of the NHL since 1947.",

    "history": "It all started on March 18, 1892, at a dinner of the Ottawa Amateur Athletic Association. Lord Kilcoursie, a player on the Ottawa Rebels hockey club from Government House, delivered the following message on behalf of Lord Stanley, the Earl of Preston and Governor General of Canada  -- "I have for some time been thinking that it would be a good thing if there were a challenge cup which should be held from year to year by the champion hockey team in the Dominion (of Canada).  There does not appear to be any such outward sign of a championship at present, and considering the general interest which matches now elicit, and the importance of having the game played fairly and under rules generally recognized, I am willing to give a cup which shall be held from year to year by the winning team." --  Shortly thereafter, Lord Stanley purchased a silver cup measuring 7.5 inches high by 11.5 inches across for the sum of 10 guineas (approximately $50); appointed two Ottawa gentlemen, Sheriff John Sweetland and Philip D. Ross, as trustees of that cup.  The first winner of the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association (AAA) hockey club, champions of the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada for 1893. Ironically, Lord Stanley never witnessed a championship game nor attended a presentation of his trophy, having returned to his native England in the midst of the 1893 season. Nevertheless, the quest for his trophy has become one of the worlds most prestigious sporting competitions.",
