As a sort of spur of the moment decision, I’ve created a Lowdown fantasy hockey league over on the TSN/ESPN website. It’s a public pool so anyone can join. That means I can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to get one of the 20 spots available (but with our sizeable readership, you should be able to get in). It’s a head to head league with the winner of each match-up based on winning the most of the nine categories (G, A, +/-, PIM, SOG, PPP, W, GAA, SV%) in play kinda like the old Yahoo pools we all used to play. Each team has 19 roster spots with nine forwards, four defencemen and two goalies starting.
The autopick draft takes place at 5:00 AM tomorrow (Thursday, October 7) so sign up now and set your picks.
UPDATE: We ran out of space in the LBFHL so we’ve set up a second league. Same settings as the other one. Check it out here.
