  • We have divided the hockey season into three periods, with each period containing nine weeks of games. The hockey pool player that accumulates the most points in a period wins the BIG CASH (see below)*
  • BONUS: When the first period (the first nine-week batch of games) is over, the pool is RESET. All players starts at zero points again, giving everyone an equal chance to win the next BIG CASH (see below)*

1st Period (Week 1-9) Make your weekend picks before the first puck drops on Friday (See rules in Welcome tab below). If you do not make your picks, they will be made automatically for you. Automatic picks will be computer-generated based on the favourite picks as chosen by the rest of the players for each game.

Over $6,000 in TOTAL CASH PRIZES up for grabs

  • $500 - Early Bird Registration Draw (Enter before October 1, 2023 to qualify)
  • $100 – Weekly cash prize for the player with the most points per week

Three Grand Prizes – One for each nine-week period

  • First period winner (Points leader after nine weeks) $1,000
  • Second period winner (Points leader after the second nine-week period) $1,000
  • Third period winner (Points leader after the third nine-week period) $1,000

To get started, click on the Registration tab.
We need a little bit of information, a user name and a password to set you up.

Once you've registered, you're all set to make your picks for the week. There are weekly cash prizes so joining anytime throughout the hockey season still gives you chances at winning.

Once you have registered, you'll be able to make your picks for the first weekend of NHL games that start on Friday October 13th – just click the Play Game tab to get started. There, you'll find a list of that weekend's NHL games. All you have to do is choose which teams you think will win each game. There's a cut-off time for each game – 15 minutes before it's scheduled to start -- but you can change your picks as many times as you like before then.

At the bottom of the list of games is a 'tiebreaker game'. Enter your choice for the final score. In the event that more than one person gets the same amount of points, the scores entered will be used to break the tie. If still tied, a winner is selected randomly.

Each week pick the winner of every game for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The person with the most points each week wins a $100 cash prize.

Can I play with a "private group" of friends and family?

Yes! We also encourage businesses and organizations to create Private Groups for their employees.

After you register and log in, click on the My Groups tab and click on "Create a Private Group" and follow the instructions.
