Tale of the Tape & Team Stories

Tale of the Tape


The Tale of the Tape interactive feature offers same-day previews for the seven Canadian NHL teams (additional teams available with customization).

The graphic automatically updates in real time to show the Canadian team’s official NHL stats against the team they are playing next, including cumulative data for the season up until present day on games played, record for wins, losses and overtime losses, total goals and more.

  • The graphic showcases stunning player portraits and action photos from The Canadian Press and AP.

  • The Canadian Press regularly monitors the data for accuracy and stays on top of player injuries and trades, for example, to ensure all player images are up-to-date.

  • Available in English or French, the graphic is responsive and hosted by The Canadian Press, making it fast and easy for you to set up and maintain via an embed code.

  • Customize your package by setting up a standalone page with all graphics for the seven teams and/or embed each team’s graphic alongside relevant articles and team pages for maximum impact.

  • Beyond the regular season, the graphic will cover playoff teams, regardless of whether they are Canadian.

Team Stories


Tale of the Tape subscribers also receive a Canadian Press news article covering the team, when available (e.g. trade news, news about players returning from injuries and other stories that may surface from our reporters attending the team’s practice before the game). During the playoffs, coverage may include a feature on the Top 5 Players to Watch and preview articles before each round with predictions on who will win and in how many games.
