NHL Scoring Updates

In response to player feedback, FantasyDraft has updated our NHL scoring system to create a more exciting and more competitive experience.

Some of the main changes include:

  • Points awarded for stats accumulated by skaters have increased overall, making each skater you draft more valuable
  • Skaters no longer receive a deduction in fantasy points for penalties
  • Team Goalies are now awarded five points for every win
  • Points for Team Goalie saves have been reduced & goals allowed scoring has been adjusted

Here’s a look at how the new scoring updates will compare to the previous scoring system:

    Awesome. I don’t know about everyone else but I like it. Should lead to some pretty wild scores and lineups. Thank you for not going to that awful +/- stat. I was afraid that’s what the changes were going to be. The scoring here is a nice change from other sites. Fair and challenging.
