Here in this article you will learn how the NHL Daily Fantasy Scoring Rules work. FanTeam has a variety of different Daily Fantasy Sports.

NHL Daily Fantasy

On the FanTeam single gameweek tournaments, there is now one form of play and that is 6 players plus substitutes (one goaltender, one defender and one attacker). So you are allowed to play one goaltender, two defenders, and three attackers. If you play season-long tournaments you are allowed to play with more substitutes.


If your first pick in goal didn’t play in the game, he will be automatically changed to the substitute-goalie.
When it comes to outfield-players the choice of formation is key because if you choose to have two defenders on the bench and one of your offensive players doesn’t play, their won’t be any trades.
If your first substitute won’t play then the system will automatically move your 2nd and try to replace him.

In the multiple gameweek tournaments (tournaments crossing over more than one gameweek) you are permitted to make changes. The number of free transfers may differ but in the regular tournaments, you are only allowed to make one transfer per gameweek. If you make more than one change you will be charged with 4 minus points per transfer. But if you form a private tournament you are allowed to pick your own number of free transfers.
