Using Power BI For Hockey Stats

Stacia Varga continues her Power BI + hockey series:

My last data acquisition step is to get statistics data for each player. I just need to build a function to dynamically get data by team like I did above using this endpoint as my base structure:

http://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/teams/54?hydrate=roster(person(stats(splits=yearByYear)))

It turns out there are many different kinds of statistics that I can get in addition to these statistics by season. I’ll probably get them all added into my model eventually, but the process is the same. For a list of other available statistics to use instead of yearByYear, see http://statsapi.web.nhl.com/api/v1/statTypes.

It’s another nice use of Power BI to read from a web-based API.
