Ratings Creation - Copying stats to spreadsheet problem

Post by Kramden23 » Fri May 11, 2018 9:09 pm

Every year when we make new ratings for our league I simply copied the stats table from nhl.com and pasted them in an excel sheet. For years this worked perfectly and placed all the stats correctly in separate cells.

Photo Example:

However this year when I copy/paste the stats in excel they are getting pasted vertically and not in the cells they're supposed to.

Photo Example:

Has anyone else encountered the same problem and/or have you found a solution?
Less than 1% of americans can speak french
More than 70% of canadians can speak english

Want more answers, why limit yourself? Post in english!

On my side, I'm not using the stats page, I'm using the API.

Like this one:
http://www.nhl.com/stats/rest/skaters?i ... mary&sort=[{%22property%22:%22points%22,%22direction%22:%22DESC%22},{%22property%22:%22goals%22,%22direction%22:%22DESC%22},{%22property%22:%22assists%22,%22direction%22:%22DESC%22}]&cayenneExp=gameTypeId=3%20and%20seasonId%3E=20172018%20and%20seasonId%3C=20172018

In PHP, it's easy to extract.

To know the API to use, use Chrome, go a NHL.com stats page, press F12, press F5 to refresh the page and search for the API call (this is the tricky part).

PowerShell is the answer.

Code: Select all

$JSON = Invoke-RestMethod -uri "http://www.nhl.com/stats/rest/skaters?isAggregate=false&reportType=basic&isGame=false&reportName=skatersummary&cayenneExp=gameTypeId=2 and seasonId%3E=20172018"
$Players = $JSON.Data
$Players | export-csv NHLData.csv -NoTypeInformation
P.S. For the futur user, please look at the first line for the season year / ID. Because you can also get previous year stat with this query.
