    Thumbs up Leg 1 of the UD RAK 'Em Up! contest: Fantasy League sponsored by 418 Sports & Greentree Sports Cards

    Leg 1: Fantasy League

    FANTASY LEAGUE.png

    September is already upon us and that means 2017-18 NHL season starts next month! To kick off the season, we’ve got an exciting new contest that will have two winners and two very cool prizes! This year, for the first time, we will be running an SCF Fantasy League! The winner of the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference league will receive a box of 2015-2016 Upper Deck Series 2 provided by the guys at 418 Sports a new card shop which recently opened in Quebec City, you can check it out at this address:

    Marché Jean-Talon Charlesbourg
    1750, rue du Périgord, Quebec, Quebec G1G 5X3

    With the addition of our third league - the Expansion Conference - the winner will receive a box of 2016-17 Upper Deck Series 2 provided by Greentree Sports Cards! Check out their eBay Store by clicking this image:


    Here’s what you need to know to enter:

    The league(s) will take place on ESPN.com Fantasy Hockey. If you do not have an account there, register now: http://www.espn.com/fantasy/hockey/

    There will be 12 teams per league, and we will have three leagues. One will be administered by Pheebs888 (the draft for this one will take place on Friday 29th September at 8:30 PM EST) one by RGM81 (the draft for this one will be held on Saturday September 30th time TBC) and the third by 30ranfordfan (the draft for this one will also take place on Friday 29th September at 8:30 PM EST) The format will be head-to-head which means that every week you will compete with another member of your league pitting your roster against theirs in 14 scoring categories:

    Skaters: Goals, Assists, +/-, Penalty Minutes, Shots on Goal, Hits, Blocked Shots, and Special Teams Points.
    Goalies: Win, Loss, Shutout, Overtime Loss, Goals Against Average, and Save Percentage

    At the end of each week, you will receive wins, losses and ties depending on the scoring and the top 8 teams of each league will take part in the playoffs. At the end of the playoffs, the winners will be crowned!

    The leagues will start with a fantasy draft (date and time of each league’s draft below) during which each team will have to select a 23 player roster. You will need to select at least 4 centres, 4 right wings, 4 left wings, 6 defensemen, 2 goaltenders and 3 reserves (it’s up to you which positions your reserves play).

    - Since a fantasy league aims to offer a realistic experience, EVERYONE must have at least 6 defencemen on their roster at all times. You cannot only select 4 d-men for instance and load up on forwards to score more points. The league manager will make periodic checks to ensure that everyone complies with this rule, if you fail to do so, you will be DISQUALIFIED;

    - There will be 3 injured reserved (IR) spots on your team meaning that if one of your players is injured long term (as determined by the ESPN League settings; we do not control this), you can move him to IR and pick a replacement on the waiver wire. Remember though, if a d-man gets injured and that brings your roster to less than 6 d-men you MUST replace him by another blue liner or go without a replacement.

    -Please be aware that to receive credit for the goalie categories, your goalies must have started at least 3 games during the match-up. This is to avoid people getting a shutout and benching their goaltenders for the rest of the week to win 3 categories easily.

    - To prevent people picking up free agents excessively, there will be a maximum of 3 free agents acquisition per weekly matchup;

    - It will be a snake draft so if you select 1st in the first round, you will select 12th in the second round. The draft order will be auto generated by ESPN.

    - During the draft, you will have 60 seconds to make each pick. If you cannot attend the draft, please put the auto-pick on so that people do not have to wait the full 60 seconds for each of your picks;

    To sign up, please post in this thread saying you are in and for which league. Then, send Pheebs888 or RGM81 or 30ranfordfan a private message telling us the email address you used to sign-up on ESPN so that we can send you the invite for the applicable league.

    During the season, each league will have its own discussion thread posted to allow for (respectful) trash talk and so that fantasy league rookies may ask any question they may have and veterans may assist.

    A huge thank you to our sponsors 418 Sports and Greentree Sports Cards for sponsoring this leg!

    Entry will be limited to the first 33 who confirm their participation on a first come, first served basis. You can chose which of the 3 leagues you want depending on your availability for the draft. We want to ensure that all participants will remain active throughout the season. Please don't sign up and take a roster spot if you aren't going to commit the time necessary to compete in this type of fantasy league.

    Best of luck to all and do not delay signing up to ensure you do not miss out!


    Please note that you don't have to pick a League based on geography--we just chose these names for kicks.

    P.S. is there a rating level on team names? i.e G, PG, PG13, R

    As it's an SCF ran contest, same rules apply as on the site. So please use your judgement, if something wouldn't be accepted here, it wouldn't be accepted in the leagues either
