The National Fantasy Hockey League continues to strive to make improvements to our league in an order to challenge and engage our participants. With the feedback from owners in our February survey and additional recent feedback from ownership regarding proposals the Commissioners have focused on a few changes for the 2019-20 NFHL season including:
The league will expand the Phase 1 Reserve Roster selection to 5 players from the previous 3 players in the 2018-19 season. NFHL teams will select 23 Active Roster and 5 Reserve Roster players in Phase 1 with the remaining 10 Reserve Roster players being selected in Phase 2. This change will bring options for GM's to acquire additional veteran or upcoming players into their rosters as Phase 1 protected players.
The 'Entry Level' contract (EL) player selection will be simplified removing the 3 player per position maximum restriction on the Active Roster. GM's will now be able to select 5 EL players on the Active Roster with no player position restrictions. As in previous season there is no restrictions on EL players on the Reserve Roster.
The NFHL will expand the number of transactions in a season to 12 from the previous 10. Each NFHL team will accrue 1 transaction per week during the month of October up to a total of four with all remaining 8 transactions being available starting in November. (See official Rules for more details). Once a team acquires a transaction it can be utilized.
The NFHL will change the prize pool awards to guarantee the top 4 overall teams receive compensation. In addition Division winners will no longer be guaranteed prize pool funds however will receive improved odds to win the Compensation Lottery. The Compensation Lottery pool will have increased funds with the top 25 teams being eligible for the prize pool with odds increasing based on overall standings. This will assure the top teams are financially awarded on performance while still allowing 25 teams to be eligible for prize award.
For details regarding these changes please review the Rules and FAQ (Frequently Ask Questions) section of the website.
