Hockey Helper is a tool for managing amateur hockey leagues. The program keeps a
database of leagues and teams, and allows game information to easily be entered.
Statistics are compiled for you, and all information is available for printing or export to PDF, Excel, or HTML files.
I wrote this program after getting involved with scorekeeping for my grandson's Mite hockey league, so support is provided for some situations not found in a more 'pro' league. The program supports tracking team activity in multiple leagues.
Roster information is displayed and edited easily. As you can see in the example, support is provided for players having the same jersey number. When entering game information, the jersey number is entered first, then you are provided a list of all players with that jersey number for final selection.
The second tab shows 'games played' information for the currently selected league:
From the 'games' tab, you may select to see a summary for the selected game.
The HTML output for the game summary report has been customized to allow easy 'cut and paste' of the game summary into another Web page (see the Help file for further details).
You may also output the game information in a scoresheet view:
The final tab displays statistics. The statistics may be sorted by clicking on the heading (to sort by 'Points', click the 'Points' header). Clicking a heading a second time will invert the sort.
The 'As Goalie' statistic reflects the Mite heritage of this program.
Hockey Helper is a 32-bit Windows program, thus requires Windows 95 (or higher)
on the host computer. It will not run under Windows 3.x.
Program written and compiled using Borland Delphi Studio 2006

* Added prompt for path/filename of exported HTML reports.
* Path is saved on report export and loaded on next export.
* Opens on 'League' which was selected when program last closed.
* Customized 'Stats' report HTML export. Multi-page statistics reports will not have any page breaks when exported to HTML.
* Added tracking of when 'Statistics' need to be re-compiled to eliminate unnecessary recompilations.
* Found deleting 'League' still left traces of teams in database. This has been fixed. Deleting 'League' now deletes all League Team and Player info from all database tables.
* Made change so that when roster last name is changed, all references to that player will be changed (games played, etc).
* 'Games' grid now adds vertical scroll bar when necessary.
* Swapped positions of '-' and '+' buttons in Print Preview.

v1.10       January 10, 2010
* Program would crash when 'print previewing' more than one Game Summary report. This has been fixed.
* Fixed goal scoring summaries so that even-strength goals have no descriptor (no 'EV') at the end of the line.
