HBSL Rules

What is the HockeyBuzz SuperLeague?

It's the best fantasy game every created. Of course, we're a little biased. The HBSL is a hybrid between a salary cap game and a head-to-head fantasy game.

Each week you create your 20 man roster based on the actual NHL salary cap and the actual salary cap hits. You then face-off with a fellow hockey fan. At the end of the regular season, we throw the best 128 teams into a 7-week playoff.

Signup

Each HockeyBuzz user is allowed one entry into the HockeyBuzz SuperLeague. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must be a HockeyBuzz Season Ticket Holder when the NHL season begins. To play, you must be signed up and have a completed roster by the start of the 1st game of the season.

Leagues

Shortly after the beginning of the first NHL game on the opening night of the NHL season, all of the entered teams will be broken up into leagues with 18+. At that time, your regular season schedule will be created and you will know who you are playing in advance. Each weekly matchup you win is worth 2 points in the standings while a tie is worth one point.

Playoffs

Two seperate 128-team playoff brackets will be created at the conclusion of the HBSL regular season. One bracket will be reserved for HB Season Ticket Holders while the other will be for those who weren't HB Season Ticket Holders at the start of the NHL season. The highest ranking STH team and the highest ranking free team in each league will earn a playoff berth. The remaining spots will be filled based on the highest points scored throughout the course of the season (wins is the first tiebreaker followed by goals scored and then saves). In the event of a tie during the playoffs, the tiebreakers are 1) Goals scored, 2) Saves, 3) Shots on goal.
