I’ve added new heatmaps to player and goalie pages. I am using the same information as the zone charts and just displaying it in a different way.
There are three steps to creating heatmaps.
- Create a gradient
- Create an alpha image of the heatmap (I’ll explain what that is later)
- Using the alpha image, colour points on the heatmap using the gradient
I did this in PHP, but can easily be adapted to other languages.
You might have, in the past, tried to upload videos to Streamable. You may even have looked at the Streamable API
You’ll notice there’s no documented way to set the title of your videos.
Thankfully, this is really easy to do.
Simply add the title get parameter to your request!
Your imported videos will now have a title!
Tableau recently released Data Driven Alerts for Tableau Online.
I immediately decided to try using an alert on my Google Analytics workbook.
I created an alert that will let me know when certain pages take longer than a second to load so I can look at logs and see what happened, so I can fix any issues with queries that my code base has!
I’ve finally finished goalie pages. Featuring where they get the most shots, and from where they give up goals. Basically the same as player pages.
I haven’t quite created a viz like the player pages do though. That’s coming up next.
In the meantime, feel free to look at Carey Price’s goalie page!
I’ve added shots against locations for a team per season, and game to the Shots Dashboard.
You can see where teams give up the most shots from.
This all arose from Benning claiming most of Vancouver’s shots against were coming from the outside.
I’ve added a new feature to IcyData that I am calling ‘League Support’ — it will allow you to switch between leagues.
I’ve made this change in preparation of adding some other leagues to IcyData. Namely the AHL, CWHL and if possible the NWHL.
Currently available are the NHL and the World Cup of Hockey.
I’m going to be presenting at the Vancouver Hockey Analytics Conference on March 11th!

I’ve put together an NHL penalties dashboard. You can view it here:
This viz actually uses the Google Sheets integration in Tableau 10.0. So once next season starts it should automatically update!
A little late to posting this here, but here it is:
There are several players where a viz like this might be cool like with the Jones/Johansen trade so I’m going to be playing around with the twb XML to see what I can do!
So, I had no idea there was a hockey TLD so I grabbed that.
I wish I’d known earlier so all the work I’d put into the net domain could’ve gone into a hockey domain.
Anyway, enjoy http://www.icydata.hockey!
