Once logged in it’s as simple a clicking the registration link to enter and follow the steps to register. Fantasy Cup Hockey Challenge “Online Edition” is a free contest to enter, but the extra services that allow online enhancements to optimize your experience playing our contests.
The concept is that you pick a roster of players from the groups provided. For each player you have chosen to have in each group, you will begin gaining points for each goal and assist they attain in the NHL regular season. When that “PICK” is active in your roster, you will get points for their goals and assists. If the “PICK” is not active in your roster, you do not get their points regardless if you had them active in your roster before or in the future (Trading circumstances). Only when the “PICK” is active in your roster will you gain points for that “PICK”. Points are allocated in this format:
Goal = 2 points
Assist = 1 point
PPG/OT Goal = 3 points
+/- = Tie breaker determination only.

For example, if a player is traded on Monday, then that player will be active for Tuesday, and you will not be able to perform a trade in that group again until Saturday, at which point your player would be active on Sunday. Once a player has been traded away, he will also be governed under these rules and you will not be able to pick him back up until the Five (5) day period has passed. If you make a trade, and realize you did not want to perform that trade we will not be able to reverse that trade for you. In some circumstances trade reversals will be accommodated upon the discretion of CI Fantasy Sports. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org , stating your need for a trade reversal. State the group the trade reversal is to be applied to, and we will use the email server time stamp as the indicator for reversal time verification if authorized.
