Hello everyone! Welcome back to Atlantic Hockey Pick'em for the 2019-2020 season! With some regular season games starting next weekend, it's time to get pick'em up and running again!
Similar to previous years, we will use a google form to make picks. 1 point will be awarded for a correct winner, 2 points for correctly calling a tie. In general, our weeks will run Thursday to Wednesday. Results will be posted typically a day after the last game, and the following weekend's schedule should be posted on Monday morning. Picks only count if submitted before puck drop of the game you are picking, so be sure to get those picks in early because there are a handful of Thursday night games this year!
For tournaments, cups, etc (like the Icebreaker) without predetermined games, I will post both possible opponents for the second game, and use the pick from the correct game.
Note: If you want to change you picks after you post them, please just resubmit all picks on the form. I will use your latest submission. If you miss a game and want to post for the rest of the weekend (or re-pick on Saturday AM, for example), just put random teams for any completed games and I won't count them.
Let me know if you have any questions. Good Luck!
NOTE: My current plan is to ignore the 3-on-3 and shootout - if a game goes to these (after the initial 5 min OT period of 5 on 5), I plan to count it as a tie still. I am not sure how other pick'ems handle this - I am open to discussion on it though, so let me know your thoughts below!
