The National Hockey League (NHL) which is professional hockey in the US and Canada has launched a slick new mobile site at m.nhl.com. It includes a mobile version of NHL Game Center which displays today’s games with live scores in a grid. Clicking on a game row opens a view with a summary of scoring plays from that game. Game Center has a history feature that lets you to skip back a day at a time to see a recap of the scoring of completed games. There doesn’t appear to be a way to jump directly to a specific day, however.
The site also has news, scores, standings, statistics and photos. There is are also “Videos” and “MyNHL” links which go to a “Coming Soon” page. I wish designers wouldn’t waste clicks and bandwidth on comeons like that. NHL Mobile adapts nicely to various devices, delivering a simple, mostly text version to basic phones, a more richly formatted one with plenty of images, as shown in the screenshot, to phones with full web browsers like the Nokia N95 and a very nice iPhone specific design. Curiously, Opera Mini gets the dumbphone version. The site design is by Quatro Wireless.
