Skate Your Way into DraftKing’s Fantasy Hockey World Championships
Our nation’s capital will be the host for DraftKing’s Fantasy Hockey World Championships. The forty best hockey qualifiers will congregate at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC for the three-day live final. There will be $400,000 in guaranteed prizes up for grabs beginning on March 7. There are still over five dozen empty spots left for the finals.
Qualifying for DraftKing’s FHWC
To earn a trip to DC and a spot in the Fantasy Hockey World Championship final, you have to win one of the qualifiers. Each qualifier will award one ticket to the finals, plus a healthy cash award for subsequent places.
Lineups and Scoring for the FHWC
The Fantasy Hockey World Championships will use the standard DraftKings NHL lineup structure throughout all rounds. Each team you enter must roster a pair centers, three wings, two defensemen, a goalie and a utility skater from any of the non-goalie spots. Your lineup must stay under the conventional hockey $50,000 salary cap.
Qualifying winners are the lineup cards from each individual contest that amass the most fantasy points. Skaters earn 3-points for every goal, and goalies get that same 3-points for winning the game. There are shots on goal points and a bonus for a hat trick. Goalies who post a shutout earn an additional 2-fantasy points.
Fantasy Hockey World Championship Experience
Every winner of a ticket to the FHWC finals will be part of lifetime memorable experience. Each spot gets a four day and three night stay at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco. DraftKings is also going to award a $1,000 for expenses. Friday night there will be a huge welcome brunch, followed by a seat at the Capital’s hockey game that night.
The Saturday final round will be live, and held at the Proper 21 restaurant and bar in Washington DC. Not only is the winner going to earn a huge $100,000 first-prize check, but DraftKings will award them with the Fantasy Hockey World Champion belt. All 40 qualifying spots will receive a cash prize payout as well.
To become the king of the fantasy hockey world, you’ve got to have a ticket to Washington DC. The only way to get that ticket is to get out on the ice and skate your way to the top spot in one of DraftKings qualifying rounds.
