NHL Is Back - Hockey Pools Start Saturday
Maple Leafs and Oilers won their regular season opener last night! Habs and Flames play tonight. Our Hockey Pick'em and Hockey Survivor pools are ready for their big kickoff on Saturday!
Join one or both of our free pools, or create your own private pool and invite friends. If you are a private pool commish, read the commish update newsletter I sent yesterday. Some important hockey pool notes below for everyone.
Think you know hockey? Pick the winner of every game on the Saturday schedule.
Starts Oct 5th. Tracks weekly and overall results.
Triple knockout - three strikes and you are out. Cannot pick the same team twice.
Starts Oct 5th. Last entry alive is the winner!
How To Join A Private Pool
After a small design change it seems the "Join This Pool" buttons on the results page went missing if your private pool commish didn't set a Commish Message. That is now fixed, so if you didn't see the join button earlier, login to your member account and go back to your private pool results page to find the Join button.
How To Share Your Pool
Your pool results page is the best link to share with your friends. It should look as follows:
XXXX is your unique pool i.d. There may be a private pool password (optionally set by your commish) to access the pool the first time.
You can also use the Share buttons found at the top of the sidebar (upper-right on large screens; below results table on small screens).
Weeky Pick Deadline
Careful of the early start games. The weekly pick deadline is 7:00pm Eastern unless the game starts earlier than that on Saturday. Then it is opening puck drop of that game, after which picks for those games are locked. All other games, the deadline is 7:00pm. There are games played earlier than 7:00pm almost every Saturday this NHL season.
- Members can edit their pick(s) anytime and as often as they like up to the deadline.
- No one can see anyone’s picks on the results page except their own before the deadline. Once we hit the deadline then the pool will automatically show all the picks for all members in your pool.
Hope to see you in the pools. Two more sleeps to Saturday hockey!
