|CHAMBER FRANCHISE HOCKEY ESPN|
Welcome to the 4th season Chamber Franchise Hockey at ESPN (CFHespn) sponsored by Webpage Creations with their own league webpage on the Internet for years to come.
The Chamber hockey fantasy league is a franchise league where the team owners pick a franchise NHL team name. Any present team owner may change their franchise NHL team name to any available team before the live draft that's scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. (ET). The team owner must select 6 keepers from their franchise team including a goalie before the live pre-draft lock at 11 p.m. September 23, 2015. In the course of the season the team owner must always have at least 5 skaters and 1 goalie from that franchise NHL team name on their roster (start, bench, & InjRes). If one or more of the team owner's players are traded to another NHL team the team owner keeps ownership of player (s) and is required to make sure he/she still has 5 skaters and 1 goalie from their franchise NHL team name on their roster.
The league has 12 teams and is made up of 3 divisions, Puck East, Puck Central, & Puck West. Each team will play 15 divisional games in playing each interdivision team 5 times in games 2-4, 7-9, 11-13, 16-18, & 21-23 and 8 outer divisional games to equal a total of 23 games for the regular season.
The playoffs will include the 3 divisional champions and 5 wildcards in games 24 thru 26, with champion of the Chamber Franchise Hockey crowned on Sunday, April 10, 2016.
This league is set up for standard scoring, head to head points, with daily lineup changes, and with each game lasting Monday thru Sunday, except Game 1 that will last 5 days (non-divisional matchup) and Game 16 that last 2-weeks (All-Star Break).
New changes in scoring includes Goalie (losses) -2 to -3 and for skaters the additions of Hat Tricks +3 and Game-winning Goals +2.
