    I reworked my site splitting into three sub-sites.
    MoreHockeyStats
    HockeyEloRatings
    NHLErrata

    What's new:
    1. There's an API-like link you can use to get the data as JSON or CSV
    2. There are player cards, team cards, coach cards and even arena cards for various subjects.
    Here's a player card example (that I used for OTTHAC18 conference):

    What's coming up:
    1. New stats
    2. Direct API to the mongo database (probably paid)
    3. Breakdown of NHL website errors
    Also I provide daily predictions for the games as well as weekly Fantasy Hockey advice on my twitter feed.
    Have a great 2018/19 hockey season!

    Thanks, my friend,

    As the little page from the ancient (1948) Soviet adaptation of "Cinderella" used to say, "I am not a magician yet, I am only in training."

    (I'm still looking, but where is the link in the websites to download a CSV of the data?) - my original post

    I found the links below the data.

    I've been lightly searching, but I really want to find good NHL data to mess around with. I looked into the nhlscrapr package in R, and the sister package in Python, but it seemed a little vague.

    Any other places where data could be easily obtainable?

    Later edit: I've found that you can download season stats per player, a pretty comprehensive list, off hockey-reference.com

    nhlscrapr, python and my own Perl package scrape the basic data from the NHL website. Everything else, including hockey-reference, derives from there, except for a possible few sites that built their pre-1987 datasets based on newspapers and such (e.g. flyershistory, I think).
