Enjoy Fantasy Hockey like never before!
If you are going to play fantasy hockey, then why not play with a company that for 26 years has offered the best in fantasy sports leagues? Last year over 8,500 fans like you played Scoresheet Fantasy Sports because we offer a fantasy game more realistic than any other. Our computer does all the work, and you get the fun of running your own NHL team.
What makes Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey the right choice for hockey fans?
Here are some of the reasons With Scoresheet Fantasy Sports you get a more complete fantasy game than any other. Because we feel that coaching your team should be an important part of playing fantasy hockey, we have such features as awarding different points for goals and assists depending on which line you list your player at. We also give different point values for short handed goals. In addition, with automatic substituting of backups when necessary, you don't have to worry that an unexpected injury will ruin your week.
Each Scoresheet league has its own individual website, which will include complete season stats for all players, including all the free agents available in your league. All draft and game results are posted to the web as soon as available. We have developed a new web based draft system that allows you to make your player picks at a specific time slot. It's like being in a real draft. To read more about web drafting please go to: Wed based draft explanation
Join Alone or With Friends: Join alone or with just a couple of buddies, and we'll put you in a 12 team league with other individual owners where we will coordinate the draft. Or join with a group and form your own complete league, in which case you can hold your own live draft.You can choose to play in a one-year league or a continuing league where 9 players are kept from year to year. You can also choose to join an existing continuing league by picking up an orphaned team at a discount. Just check our Available Teams page to see if there's a team you would like to pick up.
Have the most fun: At Scoresheet, you will play in real leagues, where you take part in an actual draft (meaning a player can only be on one team in each league.) You will participate in real trade talks with other owners in your league, not just pick up players from a 'pool', and each week of the season you'll compete in head-to-head games against other owners in your league.
NO TRANSACTION FEES: There are no weekly fees in Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey. All depth chart changes, trades, and free agent pickups are made at no charge. Your team fee pays for the entire season!
Your one-time franchise fee pays for everything, including:

All fantasy hockey games are not the same
With Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey you will experience what it's like to be a real hockey team owner, GM and coach.
Before the season begins you'll draft individual players from throughout the NHL, putting together your own team of NHL players. During the NHL season, your team will play three head-to-head games each week against other teams in your league, scoring points based on your players' actual stats in that week's NHL games. You will also be able to make trades, pick up free agents, and juggle your lineup each week to improve your team as the season progresses.
Experience the fun of running your own fantasy hockey team
Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey will turn you into a total hockey fan.Before the season, you'll scout players you want on your team. As the season progresses, you'll watch NHL games and highlights as you plot your depth chart and team roster moves. You'll follow the entire NHL like never before!
At Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey we offer a fantasy game which reflects virtually everything that happens on the ice. We offer a very realistic point value system: goals (with different values for power play or short-handed goals), assists, plus/minus, goalie saves, goals allowed and penalty minutes all figure into your players' point totals. We even give more 'ice time' (higher point values) to skaters on your first line. No other fantasy hockey game plays at this level! The best part is that we do all the extra stat work to achieve this realism - all you have to do is enjoy the game. And since all the work is done on our computer, it is just as easy for you to play Scoresheet Hockey as it is to play a simpler fantasy game with far less realism.
Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey is based on the actual NHL - each player can only belong to one team in your league. You'll be building realistic NHL teams - this is NOT like national 'contests', where every owner in your league can have Sidney Crosby on their team. Instead, you'll be taking part in a real draft, and making real trades with the other team owners in your league.
At Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey our top priority is service. As we enter our 27th year in the fantasy sports field, our reliability and promptness are second to none.
Join alone and we'll put you in a league with 11 other team owners - you will be playing with some of the NHL's biggest fans. Or join with friends, and you can talk trades and assert bragging rights whenever you get together. If you know enough fellow fans to form a complete league, you could draft in person - the best party of the year!
Make Player Moves
On your depth chart, you'll list 14 starters, along with up to 12 backups. These starters include:
3 offensive lines, consisting
of a RW, LW and C
2 defensive lines, each with 2 defensemen
You will also list up to 12 backups, who will play if any of your starters misses a game. Players are limited by their actual playing time in the NHL each week, so your reserves will play an important role for your team! But it is NOT necessary to turn in a new depth chart every week - injured players are automatically replaced by your designated backups. However, when you do want to make a change, there is no charge to do so.
On your depth chart, you can also include a short list of free agents wanted. For 2012-13, each team can draft a free agent every week (one per team) and will need to cut one player as well. If you don't want to cut a player, you don't have to. You simply won't pick up a free agent for that week.
Trading is another great way to build your team. Or if your team is doing well you can stay put for as long as you like - new depth charts are not required every week!
Virtually everything your players do on the ice will earn points for your Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey team. When your player scores a shorthanded goal in the NHL, it counts more for your team than a regular goal ... power-play goals count less! Empty net goals don't count against your goalkeepers, and penalty minutes do count. Plus/minus is also included, except for power-play situations.
There are no weekly fees in Scoresheet Fantasy Hockey. There are no extra charges for trading, free agents, or any depth chart changes!
Your team's weekly reports are sent out promptly every Monday throughout the NHL season. All game and draft results are posted to the web and also sent out by e-mail. Results can also be sent by postal mail if desired. With each report we include:
All player moves are published weekly, including all player trades and free agent pickups. Each week's results also include a list of the top undrafted players, and their season ratings, as well as season ratings for your own players, so you can make comparisons quickly and easily. We also print complete updated team rosters for your league, which include season to date Scoresheet point totals for every player in your league.
