Automatic Player Linker / Add your site to our newsfeeds

With the NHL season starting up, here's a reminder that you can request for your site to be added to our player newsfeeds. To get started, all you have to do is write a post as you normally would and use our linker tool, causing hockey-reference player links to be automatically added. Then let us know you want to be included by sending us the following information:

  • The name of your site to appear in the feed (at most 25 characters)
  • The url for your rss feed (must be a full feed)
  • A contact e-mail address
  • The url of an example page with our links in place

We'll review your request, and try to get your content added as soon as we can. It's a great way to get your content out there, and it gives your readers quick access to player stats and information.

In case you want more info, here are two videos about how it works:

    Is it possible that you could add the advanced hockey statistics such as Fenwick, Corsi, GVT, and Zone starts?

  2. Neil Says:

    I don't think there's much chance of adding play-by-play based stats like Corsi/Fenwick or zone starts. GVT, we've tried several times to get, but with no luck. The most advanced stat on the site is probably still going to be Point Shares for the time being.
