Enforcer Scoring for Fantasy Hockey Pools
If your pool doesn’t use enforcers it’s time to drop the gloves! Some nerd in your league doesn’t think enforcers deserve recognition? Pull the jersey over his head and pummel him with his boring hockey pool yearbook!
Fantasy Hockey Standard brings you the goals and the goons, and we finally give the NHL’s best heavyweights the fantasy credit they deserve. Our 2014-15 Regular Season Draft Guide was the first publication to bring you complete fantasy rankings and full profiles for the NHL's Top 30 Enforcers. We break down everything you need to know about their potential to rack up penalties, pile on the fights, and stay in the line-up despite modest hockey skills.
Incorporating an enforcer into your hockey pool is easy. For basic leagues, we recommend using a scoring system of 0.2 or 0.25 pts/PIM and 2 points/major penalty. We also recommend designating one special enforcer roster spot that only accumulates points in these categories (no points for goals and assists), and we recommend NOT awarding penalty points to the rest of the players on your roster. These stipulations ensure that devious owners can’t use scorers in the enforcer position, and also guarantee that goons (we use the term endearingly) are fantasy relevant in a way that parallels the real life NHL. The whole point is to employ the player as an actual enforcer, simulating the special role on the ice, while still allowing them to score a reasonable amount of fantasy points.
Sure, hat-tricks and OT goals are exciting, but you don’t know what fantasy hockey is until you’ve screamed at your TV as your enforcer takes apart some baby-faced wafer. Fantasy Hockey Standard punches you in the face with a fantasy perspective, and we’re the best source for enforcer rankings & profiles anywhere.
