NHL Season Update

The official details as to how the NHL plans to complete the 2019-2020 season have been shared on “The NHL announced its Return to Play Plan on Tuesday with 24 teams in competition for the Stanley Cup. The tournament will begin with a 16-team, eight-series Qualifying Round and a Seeding Round Robin among the top four teams in each conference to determine seeds for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The NHL paused the regular season March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus and its remaining 189 games will not be completed. The 12 qualifying teams from the Eastern and Western conferences were determined by points percentage as of that date. Seven teams did not qualify.”

Fleaflicker’s fantasy league experience is designed to complete before the start of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Therefore, we plan to officially bring the NHL fantasy season to a close. For now, leagues may see the top ranked team with the championship trophy, however our plan is to remove the trophy as the season will be considered incomplete.

While we don’t have that capability for commissioners to designate a specific team as the season champion via the tool at this time, if you do want to declare a champion for the 2019-2020 season, we recommend sharing the news via the Commissioner’s Note and posting the details in the league forum.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Thank you for playing fantasy hockey on Fleaflicker this season, and we look forward the start of the 2020-2021 season; leagues will be able to be activated this summer!

2019/20 NBA Mid-Season Eligibility Updates

The 2019/20 NBA season is at the mid-season point and player eligibility updates have been made. The reason we update at this point is to account for players who are playing at other positions (some or perhaps even all of the time) other than the position they were designated to play at the start of the season. NBA eligibility updates only occur one time after the season start; during the All-Star break.

2019/20 NHL Mid-Season Eligibility Updates

The 2019/20 NHL season is at the mid-season point and player eligibility updates have been made. The primary reason we update at this point is to account for players who have shifted consistently to another position that they weren’t playing at the start of the season.

While Fleaflicker will never remove eligibility, we may add dual eligibility on a case-by-case basis. For example, if a player was designated LW at the start of the season, but is now primarily playing RW, we’d update him to have both LW and RW eligibility (W). However, even if he has permanently moved to RW, we will still maintain the LW for the remainder of the season.

Owners may notice that one the updates has taken them over the maximum for one of the positions. They will need to either reduce a player at the position over the max, or they can ask their commissioner about increasing the maximum for the position. (League > Settings > Edit Roster Requirements > Custom)

The following players have been reviewed and approved for dual eligibility updates, effective 1/26/2020:
