The Super Draft Hockey Lottery started out with 917 entries and a $5,000 purse in 1984.
Twenty-three years later, Canada’s largest hockey pool boasts more than 6,000 entries and a $90,000 purse.
Not bad for a tiny little town in Saskatchewan. And certainly not bad for a couple of brothers-in-law who were simply chatting about expanding their 10-man hockey pool after a curling game in the spring of 1984.
