First and foremost welcome back to the wonderful world of fantasy hockey. It’s what gets me through the winter; cheering on my players on a Sunday night. Some scrub I picked up in the morning hoping he will get into a fight so I can win the penalty minutes on the week. Or maybe it was a backup goalie I started Sunday praying that he put up good numbers or a miraculous shootout.

Ahhh yes!! That’s fantasy hockey.

Let’s get the ball rolling.

Sign up for the HBSL (HockeyBuzz Super League) – Set your lineup’s each week and put together a quality roster who will play a lot of games and put up more points than your head to head matchup. It’s easy, and it’s fun.

If you have any questions, fire away…

I rank my players on these categories (goals, assists, points, PPP, PIM, shorthanded points and game winning goals). I rank my goalies on (goals against average, save percent, wins and shutouts).
