Quick breakdown of team-selection process for Rinkotology:

1. You are picking 10 forwards, 4 defensemen, and 2 goalies. (One from each team)

2. From your 10 forwards and 4 defensemen, you are selecting 1 captain and 2 alternate captains.

Things to keep in mind when selecting your fantasy team at Rinkotology:

1. All of your Captains' points are worth x3.
2. All of your Alternate Captains' points are worth x2.
3. There will be minus points for this game.
4. If your captain is a minus for the game, it will be x3 in the negative.
5. If one of your Alternate Captains is a minus for the game, it will be x2 in the negative.

Meaning if your players finals point total is -2.
And that player is your captain, his score will be -6.
If that player was your alternate captain, his score will be -4.

The same applies for goaltending.

Injury Policy

This applies to a player on a given users team that is injured for an extended amount of time.
The player that is injured will be auto replaced by the next highest point getter in that position.


There will be three conferences that a user will be assigned to.

Payouts in each of the 3 conferences:
1st - $300
2nd - $250
3rd - $200

5th - $100
(1st place OVERALL wins an extra $700 to make a cool $1,000 for the winner)
6th-15th place: All receive $50 EACH

This factors out to $5,200.
45 winners in total.
