Fantasy hockey update: Scoring periods update


With the NHL announcing on Wednesday that previously postponed games will be rescheduled into the former Olympic break of February, ESPN Fantasy Hockey has updated the scoring periods in weekly matchup leagues to account for the new games. These changes will take effect on Monday morning.


  • Week 16 ran from Jan. 31 to Feb. 27, including the All-Star break and what was originally scheduled to be the Olympic break.


  • Week 16 will run from Jan. 31 to Feb. 14, which includes 10 days of games.

  • Week 17 will run from Feb. 14 to Feb. 20, including seven days of games.

  • Week 18 will run from Feb. 21 to Feb. 27, including seven days of games.


How does this affect my league?

For those in weekly H2H leagues, points and categories, your regular season will be extended by two weeks. Your playoff end date will not be changed, as the NHL intends to finish the regular season on schedule.

For those in season-long Roto leagues, no change will be made to the schedule, since your league is already set to include the entire regular season.

If your league has weekly game or acquisition limits, they will be adjusted accordingly.
