2013 Fantasy Hockey Draft Kit

Fantasy hockey is a type of traditional fantasy sport in which players build a competing team that competes against other existing teams or players, based upon the statistics created by professional ice hockey players. Most fantasy hockey leagues are based around the respected teams and players of the National Hockey League. However, there are also fantasy hockey games that take place outside the NHL, such as Australian and European leagues. The latter tend to be less competitive and frequently focus on providing a fun, non-nHL feeling experience.

For this reason, many fantasy hockey leagues have evolved into something more than just a game. Many now include weekly or monthly competitions that pit teams or individual players against one another. Besides providing a competitive environment for players, these head-to-head leagues offer a venue for fans to take part in fantasy hockey gambling. While the gambling element will be minimal in fantasy hockey, it is still important to keep an eye on possible injuries and player performance levels, and to monitor the success of transactions.

There are a couple of core categories for monitoring and comparison in fantasy hockey. One of these is to determine each team’s”strength” with one or more statistical categories. These statistical categories may include goals scored, saves made, saves taken, shots on goal, penalty minutes, power play points, season wins and losses, as well as any playoff statistics. All of these categories help fantasy managers come up with a reliable fantasy hockey ranking report.

Additional categories to use in a fantasy hockey ranking report include fantasy points scored by each group, the strength of each team’s defense and offense, and the standard of on-ice leadership. A fantasy point report also lists the individual statistics for each player on each team, including regular season, playoff statistics and career statistics. While most fantasy leagues have their own rankings and data monitoring system in place, it is not uncommon for individual leagues (such as Rotisserie leagues) to use a variant of their point-per-game format used in regular season games. Using league averages provides fantasy managers with a better comprehension of which players are performing at a higher or lower level than average.

Another important category for monitoring is assisting. An assist is described as”a goal or attempt that results in a credited goal”. Although aids don’t earn fantasy points, they do not get rid of a player from the playing pool, which can limit the types of players fantasy managers can choose to draft and/or select for their fantasy squad. Many conventional h2h leagues have a minimum amount of assists that have to be accumulated over the course of a season, while some even have a minimum age for gamers to begin accumulating assists.

The last category for analyzing fantasy hockey league figures is your waiver wire. All leagues include the waiver wire and many of the conventional league kinds will contain the waiver wire also. This wire is a bulletin board detailing all transactions that have occurred between teams and showing which players are sent or traded to other teams. Many standard leagues include links to the wire, which makes it effortless to examine the transactions that have occurred without having to visit the website of every league’s management firm.

Fantasy head-to-head leagues, which allow for head-to-head games played between different teams, are another great source of data. A fantasy head-to-head league believes only games played against the players on your fantasy team. Because head-to-head leagues take into consideration games played between different groups, even if a player on your fantasy team has a bad season, he is still included in the calculations.

Standard and fantasy leagues can be difficult to analyze. Many and Rotisserie leagues are more difficult to analyze than standard leagues because they require so many matches played and a lot of minutes per game. A novice might want to consider using one of the other two types of leagues, especially if he doesn’t mind losing a few games in his fantasy league. Starting in a head-to-head league is extremely straightforward. All one must do is choose a draft pick and begin playing in the games.
