|CHAMBER HOCKEY LEAGUE|
Welcome to Season 7 of the Chamber Hockey League (CHL) at fantrax sponsored by Fantasy 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, October 1, 2017 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 28, 2017. The draft order is the result of the past regular season standings & tie breakers 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) at all times. If one or more of the team owner's players are traded to another NHL team the team owner retains ownership as the player is grandfathered. Trading deadline set for Sunday, February 18, 2018.
Changes include league champions changing from Toronto Maple Leafs to Florida Panthers and new team owner taking over Edmonton Oilers to play as Nashville Predators.

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 8, 2018.
