FantasyHockeyHelper - 2021–2022 NHL Preview

Sept 30, 2021

A week before the last NHL season began, I started FantasyHockeyHelper.ca and wrote a web app to help me optimize drafting multiple fantasy hockey teams with various pool settings. This year, I’m excited to continue that project, and I’ve been working hard all summer to get ready for the 2021–2022 season.

January 13, 2021

I’ve been playing fantasy hockey for about 15 years now. That means that technically I’ve been sports-gambling since I was a child. One year I actually won my Dad’s office playoff pool (I don’t know why they let a child join to be honest) with a prize of ~$800 dollars which bought me an Xbox 360 and Rock Band (his coworkers weren’t pleased)! Illegalities aside, fantasy hockey is an incredibly fun, several-months long game that further ignites my interest in professional hockey and brings friends, teammates, and coworkers together in pursuit of a small cash prize and bragging rights that they “know hockey the best”.
