H2H Salary Cap

How to Play

You are the owner, general manager, and coach of your very own hockey franchise. It is up to you to decide the starters each week. Using an imaginary $100 million bank account, pick your team of 10 pro hockey players that you think will rack up the most points each week using the unique Head2Head scoring system.

All of the players listed have been assigned a salary based on past performance and expected performance this season. You must choose 2 Centers, 2 Left Wings, 2 Right Wings, 2 Defensemen, 1 Goaltender Staff and 1 Flex Position (any position player - a second goaltender staff is not allowed). Your players will earn Head2Head Fantasy Points based on their actual on-ice performance. If you want a player who is not currently listed in Player Salaries, give us a call and we'll add the player with the appropriate salary.

Head2Head Competition!

Your team is placed in a 32-team league made up of four 8-team divisions for 25 weeks. During the H2H Regular Season, which runs from October 4th through April 3rd, you will compete Head2Head each week against a new opponent. If during the week your fantasy hockey team earns more H2H points than your opponent's team, then you post a win for that week! At the end of the H2H Regular Season, the top 16 teams in each league will qualify for the H2H Playoffs.*

Score Big Points!

Each week your players earn points for their actual on-ice performance. Points are awarded according to the official Head2Head scoring system. For a complete breakdown of the scoring system, click the Game Details link.

We'll Keep You Updated!

Each week you will review personalized reports as well as the H2H Game News. These reports are complete with a box score, updated daily, full of your team's statistics and those of your last opponent, your league and division standings, and the roster of your next Head2Head opponent. Buy the Complete Package and get Live Stats updates while your players are on the ice. Updated standings and scores can be accessed each Wednesday by using your e-mail address and password. Updated opponent's rosters (after trading) can also be accessed every Wednesday after trading has ended.

Making Trades!

While managing your roster, your players may get injured, suspended or fall into your doghouse. To maintain the strongest lineup possible you can make trades. Trades cost $3.00 each, however, you may purchase one of the following discounted trade packages: 10 trades for $25 (save $5), 20 trades for $40 (save $20, only $2 each), or 50 trades for $90 (save $60, only $1.80 each). Weekly trade deadlines are 8 PM Eastern Time (5 PM PT) Wednesdays by phone or 10 PM Eastern Time (7 PM PT) Wednesdays by Internet. Keep in mind that players in early games on Wednesdays must be on or off your roster by the start of the game. Each Complete Package team will receive one (1) Full-Team Trade Certificate which can be redeemed by phone or via the web site prior to the applicable deadlines - this is a $25 trade value! Season Pass members get three (3) Full-Team Trade Certificates for every Complete Package team!

The Playoffs!

At the end of the regular season the top three (3) teams in each division will qualify for the H2H Playoffs. In addition, four (4) teams from each league that did not automatically qualify for the H2H Playoffs will earn "wildcard" playoff berths. The H2H Playoffs will run concurrent with the NHL playoffs, approximately Tuesday, April 10th through Monday, June 12th. Playoff information will be sent via email at the end of the regular H2H season. There is no Head2Head play and no elimination in the H2H Playoffs. H2H Playoff winners, including the Grand Prize winner, will be determined by the most cumulative points earned during the H2H Playoffs.

Talk some smack!

Use league messaging to talk some smack to your opponents or buddies in your league. You'll receive a message indicator on your team account and and email alert that you've been sent a message. This is a great way to talk up your game and to get to know your opponents!

Important tips!

Have fun!! H2H Fantasy Hockey is intended solely for entertainment purposes. But we all know that losing sucks. Try any combination of asking for our advice, throwing objects or even some 12 ounce curls to bring back your sanity.

Keep watch for your H2H saviors, aka the "sleepers" (players who have low salaries and yield high H2H point totals). Also, take note that the salaries may change twice during the season. Once in the middle of the season some salaries will decrease only. Just prior to the playoffs all player salaries may go both up or down.
