NEW YORK (March 19, 2007) — NHL.com today launched the Playoff Fantasy Hockey Challenge presented by XM Radio. Developed by STATS LLC, this interactive challenge allows fans to act as NHL club owners and build a team that competes against other fantasy owners based on the statistics generated by actual NHL hockey players as they compete for The Stanley Cup.
Participants in the Playoff Fantasy Hockey Challenge begin the postseason owning the rights to every player participating in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The task is to create a team of 10 starting players each week with the added challenge of starting each player a maximum of three times throughout the course of the playoffs. Fans can compete by creating or joining a public or private league of friends with similar interests and fantasy skill levels.
The Challenge begins with the first playoff game scheduled for Wednesday, April 11, 2007, and ends after the last game, estimated to be Monday, June 11, 2007. The Challenge consists of nine weekly periods know as “Challenge Weeks.” A Challenge Week consists of all games played Monday through Sunday.
