What's New for Fantasy Hockey '19

  • New Default Waiver Settings for Public and Pro Leagues
    • In a significant change for public and pro leagues, continuous waivers with FAAB (Free Agent Acquisition Budget) will now be used to claim players instead of Free Agents.
    • You will make claims to add players for the next day same as ever. However, claims are resolved by price paid and ties are broken by waiver priority.
    • This is much fairer than awarding players to the first player to make the claim. Sorry West Coasters, we have to be fair to everyone.
  • Start Your Fantasy Playoffs Before Players Rest for the NHL Playoffs
    • Start the playoffs any week after the all-star game week.
    • Playing in roto or points leagues? No worries, you can also end your roto or points league’s season earlier as well.
    • Never have to choose between Fantasy Hockey and Baseball again.
  • Games Remaining and Projected Points
    • New this year, H2H leagues will display the total games played and games remaining on the mobile app and browser match-up screens.
    • H2H-points leagues will also show projected points for every match-up the same as Fantasy Football.
  • Deeper Prospect Pool
    • More NHL prospects than ever at season start -- over 1200 available players at game launch.
