This add-on requires a valid subscription to NHL GameCenter. It does NOT yet work with the new MLB-inspired system! There is a dev build out, but there will be bugs!

Notable features:
  • Watch the following game types in high quality (up to 5000kbps and 60fps):
    • Live games (including the ability to rewind a live game to the beginning of the game)
    • Recently live and upcoming games
    • Archived games
    • Condensed games
    • Game highlights
    • French streams (when available)
  • Each game displays a unique matchup image showing the logos of the two teams that are playing.
  • Ability to specify an HTTP/HTTPS proxy to be used only by this add-on.
  • The list of games clearly shows which games have yet to start, are in progress, and have ended.
  • The list of games optionally shows the current score for the game.
  • Hassle-free operation. You should only have to concern yourself with how your favorite team is playing. Leave the implementation details to me. I will consider it a personal failure if I ever have to give troubleshooting instructions that begin with something to the effect of "try deleting your cookies and see if that fixes it."

Am I missing a feature that you're just dying to have? Let me know what it is, and I'll consider implementing it!


Do you love what I've done, and want to throw money at me? I appreciate the sentiment, but you truly don't have to. I will continue updating the add-on as my time permits, regardless of donations. If after reading all this, you still want to donate, I'm not going to try to stop you!
  • Donate via PayPal
  • Don't like PayPal? I don't blame you. I'll probably add support for Stripe later.

Closing comments:

The goal of this add-on is to enjoy the great sport of hockey. I put a lot of time and effort into making this add-on great, and in my not-so-humble opinion, I think I did a fantastic job of that. If you don't agree, please let me know what you think I could do better. If you would like an alternative option, you can try this add-on.

Through an error when going to LIVE games (I know there are none on at the moment). Just thought I'd show you the error now.

Also has zero games for Recent games.
Well that's a highly embarrassing error, and with a default config setting even! Fixed now. Thanks!
Nice. Just installed and watched about 5 minutes of the Stars/Devils game. Just a short test, but video quality is great and no buffering.

Thanks for putting this together. Having 2 great addons for the NHL is never a bad thing. It's always good to have options!
Thanks for this. I will try it tomorrow.
The recent games don't load. It just says RETRY.

Recent games is working for me. Watching Jackets/Ducks from last night.
Recent games showing up as "Retry" looks to be a login credentials issue, it's just that my error handling is pretty terrible so it fails to let the user know that. I'm in the process of cleaning up the error handling at the moment so that it's not functionally useless. In the mean time, verify that your username/password are correct.
thanks for your efforts! ill try it out tonight.

happy to see that you have a repo setup. saves me from having to follow the thread for every update.
I still can't log in. My info is correct as I use the other NGCL add-on. I tried with my email and with and without Rodgers login.
Weird. Do you use the Rogers login for the other add-on? It's possible that I screwed something up there. I'll look at it later tonight to see if I can find anything wrong.
I did use the Rodgers login for the other one with no issues.
It turns out that I DID screw something up with regards to the Rogers login handling. I fixed it in v0.0.5, which I just pushed out. I don't actually have a Rogers login to be able to test the fix myself, but I'm confident that it'll work now regardless.
The recent games are working now. It seems to be logging into live as well as my username is in my cookies now. Thanks.
Works perfect now. This should be the add-on everyone should use. Works very well and I like that it shows if the game has ended or is in progress and the scores. Keep up the good work.
