We've added a number of new features to the site for those of you that are interested in player awards:
- Voting Results for Awards (going back to the 1923-24 season)
- NHL Stars of the Week and Month
- Links to awards from the player stat lines.
Voting Results for Awards
To see the voting results for an individual year, you can either go to the main awards index, or you can go to an individual award page and click on the Season that you want the voting results for.
NHL Stars of the Week and Month
On the main awards index, you can find links to the NHL Three Stars Awards going back to the 2009-10 season. These awards took the place of the previous NHL Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week/Month awards:
Awards on Player Stat Lines
Finally, we've added links on the yearly stat lines to all of the player awards to make them easier to find. For example, this is what Wayne Gretzky's stat line looks like:
As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions on these new features.

Those nifty little graphics that you've come to know and love on Baseball-Reference and Basketball-Reference are now available on Hockey-Reference as well. Known as "sparklines," they visually indicate when, and by how much, a team won or lost each game. If you mouse-over each day, you can get additional details about the game, and clicking on a day will take you to the box score for that game. They are available on the "Roster and Statistics" page for each team year.
As a side note, you'll also notice that many of the combobox menus have been converted to the standard Sports Reference-style menus across the site. We feel that these provide a better experience for users.
As always, feedback is welcomed.

In preparation for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, we have made all of our historical Men's Olympic Hockey statistics available on Hockey Reference.
You can now dig into how the U.S. defeated Switzerland 29-0 in the first Olympic Hockey Quarterfinals in 1920:
Or maybe you remember fondly the 1992 Unified Team that won the gold in its only Olympics:
You can get started by looking at the athletes, the teams, the years, or even the individual games. With the 2014 Winter Olympics rapidly approaching, we are happy to be able to provide you with this data, and welcome any feedback or suggestions to improve it.

As Nate Silver tweeted out earlier today, Neil Paine is leaving Sports Reference early next month to join Nate's new FiveThirtyEight.com. I know I speak for everyone here at SR when I say I'm feeling a mix of sadness that on a daily basis we won't get to tap Neil's encyclopedic knowledge of European NBA players, his knowledge of pretty much every sabermetric study ever done, his patience dealing with every kind of user complaint, and his wit, pluck, and genuine enthusiasm for his work. But also happiness for Neil that his writing and thinking is getting the platform it justly deserves. I know someday we'll be bragging that we knew Neil Paine before he was a bigshot. :)
I'll be anticipating his articles and I suggest you search them out as well when the site launches in early 2014.

Just a small add to the player pages, but we now show a flag on the player pages representing the country of birth for the players.

Sports Reference has hired two new web developers/engineers/programmers to their burgeoning staff of now five.
David Corby joined us the last week of October and thus far has been shepherding the NBA and College Basketball sites. (Yes, we did give him a lot of time to get settled.) He is a UVA grad who worked in commercial operations at JetBlue. He's a largely self-taught developer with a wide range of development work. David once played against David Wright in a HS baseball game, and he went 4-4 with 4 doubles (Wright did, that is). He is largely a New York fan -- especially a Yankees fan, which proves we stand by our company policy that we don't discriminate on the basis of sports franchise affinity.
Hans Van Slooten (@cantpitch) will be joining us in December, working out of our newly-established Minneapolis branch, coincidentally located in Hans' home (note we do not offer company tours at this branch). Hans will be working on the hockey site and number of new projects/items from our wish list that we previously haven't had the bandwidth to work on. He joins us from OLSON (where he was a technical director) and, previous to that, comScore. He's a Twins and Vikings fan and will also help me source locally produced lefse and lutefisk for the Sports-Reference Christmas party.
