2015-16 SEASON







   Welcome to Season 3 of the NHL Franchise League (NHLFL) at fantrax sponsored by Webpage Creations with their own league webpage on the Internet for years to come.

          The NHLFL fantasy is a franchise league where the team owners has a franchise NHL team name consisting of one (1) from the Eastern Conference and one (1) from the Western Conference.  The main objective to the league is before the live draft each team owner must select 8-pre-draft keeper players, 4 each from their Eastern & Western franchise NHL teams.  All players not selected as keeper players will then go into the player pool for the draft.  Each team owner must keep 4 players from each NHL franchise on roster (active, bench, InjRes) throughout the course of the campaign (the NHLFL Golden Rule).

        The live draft is scheduled for Sunday, October 9, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. (ET) with the keeper lock date set for Thursday, October 6, 2016.  If one or more of the team owner's players are traded to another NHL team the team owner retains ownership of that player who is grandfathered to that team.  Trading deadline set for Monday, February 20, 2017.

        The league has 12 teams and is made up of 3 divisions, Atlantic, Superior and Pacific.  Each team will play 22 games for the regular season including 4 divisional round robins and 10 games against opponents of other divisions.

        The playoffs will include the 3 divisional champions and 5 wildcard rated #1 thru #8 with the playoffs to begin week #24 with champion of the NHLFL crowned on Sunday, April 9 , 2017.

        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 lasting 5 days to begin the season and Game 16 will last 10 days with All-Star Break and the champions crowned to end the NHL regular season on Sunday, April 9, 2017.
