|CHAMBER HOCKEY LEAGUE|
Welcome to Season 5 of the Chamber Hockey League (CHL) at fantrax sponsored by Webpage Creations with their own league webpage on the Internet for years to come.
The Chamber fantasy is a franchise league where the team owners pick a franchise NHL team name. Team owners may change their franchise NHL team name to any available team before the live draft that's scheduled for Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. (ET). The team owner must select 6 keepers from their team including a goalie before the live draft with a lock date set on Thursday, September 24, 2014. The draft order is the result of the past regular season and not the result of playoffs.
The league Golden Rule 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 retains ownership and is required to make sure he/she still has 5 skaters and 1 goalie from their franchise NHL team name on their roster. Trading deadline set for Monday, February 15, 2016.
The league has 12 teams and is made up of 3 divisions, Puckeast, Puckcentral, & Puckwest. Each team will play 15 divisional games in playing each interdivision team 5 times in weeks 2-4, 7-9, 12-14, 17-19, & 22-24 and 9 outer divisional games to equal a total of 24 games for the regular season.
The playoffs will include the 3 divisional champions and 5 wildcard rated #1 thru #8 with the playoffs to begin week #25 with champion of the Chamber Hockey League 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 (a non-divisional matchup), Game 16 last 3 days with All-Star Break and Game 27 (championship) to last 6 days and a strong schedule of games to end the NHL regular season on Saturday, April 9, 2016.
The one scoring change is on Goalies (GA) goals against increased -1.5 fp to -2 fp.
