Canadiens Fantasy Hockey is a free online game that allows you to play against other Montreal Canadiens fans as you attempt to earn the most points during each of the Montreal Canadiens' regular season and playoff hockey games.
A new game round is played for each Canadiens hockey game, and you can register to play up to 5 minutes before game time. Typically, unless the Canadiens are playing back-to-back games, you can register to play for the next round a few days in advance. At the very least, registration will open by 10am the day of each Canadiens game.
PICK YOUR TEAM
You earn points in each game by first selecting your "team" from members of the Montreal Canadiens roster. Canadiens players earn points for you by scoring goals, getting assists, giving hits, etc. But you are limited in the number of players that you can choose by a salary cap. Players that typically earn more points will cost more to purchase for your team.
Player salaries will go up and down over the season depending on if that player is hot or cold.
TRACK YOUR POINTS
During a Canadiens hockey game, you can visit the LEADERBOARD page to see which fans are the current point leaders. You can also visit the PLAYER STATS page to see which Montreal Canadiens players have recorded stats in the hockey game so far, and who has earned the most points.
In addition, you can check out the SEASON LEADERS page to see who has the highest average points and most accumulated points over all the fantasy games played this season.
EARN BONUS POINTS
In addition to earning points by playing in fantasy rounds, you can also get bonus points to put towards your season points average and season points total. Note that bonus points do not apply to the monthly point leaders for highest average points or total points. Here's how you can earn bonus points:
- 1st place in a fantasy game = +50 bonus points.
- 2nd place in a fantasy game = +40 bonus points.
- 3rd place in a fantasy game = +30 bonus points.
- 4th place in a fantasy game = +20 bonus points.
- 5th place in a fantasy game = +10 bonus points.
- Play in 25 or more fantasy games = +100 bonus points.
- Play in 50 or more fantasy games = +200 bonus points.
BE A WINNER
We will be awarding a Grand Prize to the Fantasy Hockey player with the most number of accumulated points at the end of the regular season.
