Hockey Pool Draft Date Announced

You may not have to think about hockey pools yet (hell, it's only the end of July), but that's what you have the Opiated Sherpa for, right? He's got everything under control, nice and early as well. He already has a date and a place booked for your drafting pleasure...

October 7th, 2008
Jameson's Pub, NE Calgary

Well, mark it down on your calendars, it will come sooner, rather than later. The reservation has been made for 6pm, so show up any time around then.

By that time, we'll already have had four games played in the league, the two Premiere games in Europe, so most teams will have their rosters finalized by then. Sheets and likely some magazines will be around for your picking assistance.

The rules will be the same as last season... $50 a head for an entry fee, hopefully we'll have 30 teams participating, we had 17 last season... 8 forwards, 4 defense, 2 goalies per team... goals and assists count for the skaters... wins & shutouts @ 2 points a piece, plus assists for the goalies... it's all pretty straight-forward.

All the official rules will be supplied at the actual draft, so no need to worry about it right away.

If you're interested, you can look up the Opiated Sherpa Hockey Pool Group on Facebook and find his event that he posted there. Everyone is welcome, cancellations are almost certain, so we want to be sure we fill up 30 spots.

Also, the Hockey Pool Sheet will also be available for your selection pleasure for $25 per sheet. It will likely be released before the Premiere games in Europe, but will have a deadline of October 12th.
