Convenience is everything nowadays.
We want everything to be as centralized as possible – with
apps, news, etc all in one place – and everything done for us to the largest
possible extent. To that end, I’ve taken the initiative to simplify and
centralize the very common calculation of a hockey player’s NHLE, by creating a
calculator for it. To my knowledge, it’s the first of its kind that is publicly
available (this determined by one Google search and quick scan of the results),
but I could be wrong.
What the internet needs now is an easy to use NHLE calculator.

For those who are unaware of what NHLE is, you can read up on the topic from the creator himself, Gabriel Desjardins.
NHLE has been evolved and groomed by another hockey
analytics pioneer, Rob Vollman, since Desjardins’ introduction of it and I’ve
used Vollman’s latest NHLE equivalencies in the design of the calculator.
Unfortunately, the calculations are hard coded into the program so if/when these
equivalencies change, I will have to manually update it.
You can download the NHLE Calculator from my Dropbox page here, and store it wherever your heart desires for future use.
It has 37 leagues integrated and turns the previously tedious process into a three step,
No more scouring the Internet for equivalencies and then whipping
out an actual calculator for manual calculations.
It has gone through a few rounds of testing but there will still probably be bugs here and there. If you find any more, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get them straightened out. If there’s an appetite for it, there’s the potential to imbed it on a website and have it be an online tool.
Once more, here’s the link to download the NHLE Calculator.
Hope you all enjoy it.
