WHAT IS OILERS FANTASY HOCKEY?

Oilers Fantasy Hockey is a free online game that allows you to play against other Edmonton Oilers fans as you attempt to earn the most points during each of the Edmonton Oilers' regular season and playoff hockey games. The best part of our game is that each game starts fresh; a clean slate so your past performances don't hinder your potential gains in the following week.

PRIZES

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7TH:

As a special season-opening offer, we will be awarding a Team-Signed Authentic Jersey for the winner of Thursday's game!
We will be awarding a Grand Prize of a Team-Signed Authentic Jersey to the fan with the highest points average at the end of the regular season (minimum 40 games played). We will also award an Oilers Prize Pack (including a team signed hockey stick, an official Oilers hat, and more!) for the fan with the most number of accumulated points at the end of the regular season.

HOW TO PLAY

You earn points in each game by first selecting your "team" from members of the Edmonton Oilers roster. Oilers 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.

To start, players' salaries will be based on their CAP HIT. However, player salaries will go up and down over the season depending on if that player is hot or cold.

HOW DO I TRACK MY POINTS

During a Oilers 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 Edmonton Oilers players have recorded stats in the hockey game so far, and who has earned the most points.

BONUS POINTS

In addition to earning points by playing in Oilers Fantasy Hockey rounds, you can also get bonus points to put towards your season point average and season point total. Note that bonus points do not apply to the monthly point leaders for highest average points or total points.

WEEKLY UPDATES

In an effort to help you make your selections, we'll be providing weekly updates for all fans to consult. In realizing that making selections can sometimes be difficult and mentally strenuous, we'll be here to help you along. We'll carefully breakdown the weekly matchups and provide you with the most comprehensive information that could help lead you to the fantasy hockey promise land.
