Fantasy Hockey

Hockey is the national pass time of Canada. Although I don’t follow hockey closely, I have a general interest in the game. Some friends at work start a fantasy hockey league for the up coming hockey season, so I design to join the hockey pool. The game is very simple, each of us chip in $5. Then we select players to build our own hockey team. Base on the win or lose and other statistics of your players in the NHL games, they have some score points. At the end of the season, whose team has the highest point win the pool. Yahoo has a very user friendly fantasy sports website that keep track of all the statistics and calculate your points.

Here are the players for my hockey team.

Marian Hossa (ATL)
Martin St. Louis (TB)
Daniel Briere (PHI)
Slava Kozlov (ATL)
Michael nylander (WAS)
Alexander Semin (WAS)
Ray Whitney (CAR)
Saku koivu (MON)
Keith Tkachuk (STL)

Sheldon Souray (EDM)
Bryan McCabe (TOR)
Tom Preissing (LA)
Michal Rozsival (NYR)
Hal Gill (TOR)

Martin Brodeur (NJ)
Marc-Andre Fleury (PIT)

I don’t know much about hockey news and don’t know most of them except a few Canucks players.  So my drafting strategy is to pick the best player based on last year’s statistic.  My assumption is this year’s performance should follow last year’s.  We’ll see how well my pick do in a few months.

  1. Hockey implicitly imply ice hockey. The non-ice hockey is called ball hockey or field hockey, that’s a girl game in Canada.

    Among all the professional sports, hockey probably has the fastest pace. The puck can go really fast, up to 100mph.
