Strategy Guide

These tips will help you get wins in our scoring system.

Pick goalies on teams favored to win

When a goalie’s team wins, he earns 12 fantasy points. That’s a huge point bonus that can really give you a bump in the standings.

Stack players on the same line

Pick up to 3 skaters who will be on the ice at the same time. That way, when one player scores a goal, the other two could each get an assist as well. That’s a total of 28 points on one play.

Choose skaters who consistently get shots on goal

Shots produce goal-scoring chances. Whether it's a direct shot on goal, a rebound, or just a fortunate bounce, high volume shooters can earn you some serious points.

Find skaters who get powerplay time

With some extra research, you can find skaters who are usually on the ice during powerplays. Since power plays often lead to points, these players are hugely valuable.
