The 2019/20 NHL season is close at hand and player eligibility updates have been made for the upcoming season. Here’s how NHL positions updates will work moving forward:

  • Our data provider makes the final decision on position eligibility.
  • Moving forward, positions will lock seven days prior to the season start. (See note at bottom regarding the 2019-20 season.)
  • Fleaflicker will never remove position eligibility mid-season.
  • The player’s listed position with the NHL, past performances, depth charts and starting lineup data are all utilized to determine the position.

Our sincere apologies that some players shifted positions just as the 2019/20 season started; this was not our intention. Moving forward, our plan is to lock all updates at least 7 days before the start of the season.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns about eligibility. We hope you enjoy a great season of fantasy hockey on Fleaflicker!
