Fantasy Hockey 101 - Things You Need to Know About This Game Fantasy hockey is a fun and exciting sport, and it is a great hobby for people who are fans of the National Hockey League (NHL). The National Hockey League (NHL) is an unincorporated, non-profit association. The association controls and operates the major professional ice hockey leagues. This ice hockey league has 30 franchised members which form the club. Six teams come from Canada, while the 24 teams that comprise the NHL are based in the United States. The headquarters of the NHL can found in New York City. The NHL is considered as the biggest professional premier ice hockey league in the world. It is a sport in the same league as basketball in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and American football in the National Football League (NFL). It is also one of the main sports in Canada. The main championship trophy that the various NFL teams have been contending for is called the Stanley Cup. It is said to be the oldest professional sports trophy given in the North American region. Now that you have a bit of background about the NHL, let’s give you a bit of information about fantasy hockey. Fantasy hockey is another variation of fantasy sports. In fantasy hockey, you are a player called the manager or team owner. And just like in real life, you have to build a team that has a fighting chance to win in competition against other fantasy hockey team owners. The very foundation of fantasy hockey is the statistics which comes from the professional hockey teams. Most of the fantasy hockey games are basically based on the statistics generated by the National Hockey League. A particular type of fantasy hockey pool is usually comprised of 8 to 12 teams, though it is not unusual for a fantasy hockey league to have as much as 20 teams (all the more fun it would seem). Pools that have more than 20 teams may sound like a party on the weekend during fantasy gathering, but it actually is detrimental as it begins to dilute the average talent. However, more than 20 teams in a fantasy hockey pool somehow come close to replicating the real NHL which, as you know, has 30 teams. There are other forms of fantasy hockey games and some of these allow an unlimited count of hockey teams. In this variation, the team owners may draft the same player or players. And in this variation, there is a typical restriction in the amount of trades the owner can negotiate.


If you are a major fan of NHL and hockey, the best way to elevate your experience is to join a fantasy hockey team.
