Wild Fantasy Challenge Continues
Monday, 01.30.2012 / 11:14 AM CT / News
It's almost February and the NHL's regular season is more than halfway done. But that doesn't mean it's too late to register for the Wild Fantasy Challenge powered by HotBox Sports. You can still win some great prizes starting with Tuesday's game as the Wild hosts the Nashville Predators.
The Wild Fantasy Challenge offers a bit of a twist from regular head-to-head or week-to-week Fantasy hockey games. The game is free and you can register and set your lineup here.
In the Fantasy Challenge, fans pick different Wild players to play during a particular "game period," which is typically a two game stretch.
Contestants start six forwards, four defensemen and one goalie, with one of those players being selected as the "double player," meaning his points count for twice as much.
Fans also pick one forward, one defenseman and one goaltender as reserves should one of their starters not play in that particular game period.
Each player in your starting lineup will be picked to play in one game over that game period. For example, the next game period will feature the Wild's games against Nashville on Tuesday and Colorado on Thursday. You can put six of your starters in for the Nashville game, and five in for the Colorado game, or however you want to work it.
Prizes will include tickets to Wild games and will be awarded on a monthly basis. For full contest rules, click here.
