I am looking to start another season for the D3FHL this year if anyone is interested. I am willing to expand the conference numbers if we get more people interested.

MEMBERS

1. Membership into the D3FHL is open to any hockey fan. You DO NOT need to be a member of the USCHO Fan Forum to be a member of the D3FHL.


CONFERENCES/TEAMS

1. Members will be placed into 4 conferences (TBA).
2. A maximum of 24 members overall (6 per conference) is allowed. If less, we will reconstruct the playoff and schedule format.


MATCHUPS

1. Teams will face off in a head to head weekly point based match up against both conference and non-conference opponents.
2. Teams will accumulate both OVERALL and WEEKLY points. (see PLAYER/TEAM POINTS)
3. Teams will then participate in a conference tournament starting week 17 (see Tournament Rules)
4. There will then be a National Tournament following the Conference Tournament (see Tournament Rules)
5. At the conclusion of the National Tournament we will crown both a Tournament Champion and Overall Champion (see Tournament Rules)


TEAM POINTS

1. If a team wins the head-to-head match up, the winning team receives 2 points for a win, 0 points for a loss, and 1 point for a tie.
2. Only a teams WEEKLY player points count towards the teams weekly points. (see PLAYER POINTS)
3. Teams WEEKLY Points are made up of the following Player Points:
• 3 forwards
• 2 defensemen
• 1 goalie4. Teams will have a total of 4 forwards, 3 defensemen and 2 goalies on their roster, but can only dress their WEEKLY point teams (see Team Points #3)
5. Points however will still be accumulated for the entire 9 man roster for the Overall Point Champion.
6. Only 2012-2013 Mens Division II/III players are eligible for points
7. Players will be selected via the draft (see DRAFT RULES)


DRAFT RULES
i. Members will be placed in a 4 round draft based on the final overall points from the prior year. If new members you will be placed in the open spots and will have the first picks based on a random lottery.
ii. Players may only be picked ONCE.
iii. A total of 9 players will be picked (4 forwards, 3 defensemen, 2 goalies)
iv. Only 2 players from 1 team can be on your roster.
v. Only 4 players from 1 conference can be on your roster.
vi. Round 1 – 1 player, Round 2- 2 players, Round 3 and 4 – 3 players
ix. If a member is NOT available to participate they may supply the D3FHL with a list of their team prospect listed 1-50 to move the draft along.
x. The following season, each member will be able to keep drafting rights to 2 of their 9 players. The draft will then go based off of last years overall points with the lowest point total getting first pick after all new members pick


PLAYER POINTS

1. Forwards and Defensemen
i. GOALS = 2PTS
ii. ASSISTS = 1PT
iii. GAME WINNERS = 2PTS

iii. The At-Large bids will be determined by the highest overall point totals of the remaining non conference tournament champions.
iv. If tied, highest weekly total prevails
v. If still tied, the higher of the lowest weekly totals prevails.

SEEDING THE TOURNAMENT

i. Once the 12 teams have been selected, the teams shall be seeded as follows:
a. Conference Champions are seeded 1-4 with #1 being the highest overall point total, and 4 being the lesser of the four.
b. At Large Seeds will be seeded 1-8 with #1 being the highest overall point total, and 8 being the lesser of the eight.
ii. Conference Champions have a week bye with the At Large bids facing off : 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5.
iii. The HCC (Highest Conf Champion) will face the lowest AL (At Large) and so on
iv. The following weeks the schedule will be strictly based on a pre-determined bracket
v. In the event of a tie through out the National Tournament, overall points will be used from the teams entire roster.


NOTE: I just copied and pasted last years rules and switched the dates around, so if I made a mistake on dates let me know....I am thinking of starting the draft at the mid to end of July. It went pretty good last year. I will come up with a date soon, and then a "reply by" date for old members to sign up by so I know how many new spots we have. If you are indeed interested you can let me know now. Don't wait till the last minute.

Questions, suggestions, comments let me know....
