We’ve recently partnered up with DailyJoust.com, a site that has a fun new take on fantasy sports. Instead of having to manage the same squad for an entire season, you can play NHL GM and put together your own team consisting of 9 hockey players which will go up against other teams in a one day battle for prizes. If you register for free for tonight’s competition, you can win part of the $250 prizes in the daily tournament.

I put together my own Flyers-heavy squad under username ‘The700Level’ for tonight’s competition. Can you beat us?

How it works: you pick 9 players (2 C, 2 LW, 2 RW, 2 D, and a Team Goalie) using a variation of the salary cap system. For instance, you can get a young guy like Sean Couturier for $98,000 while a more experienced goal scorer like Claude Giroux will cost you $158,000 for the day. You fit your 9 players under a $1,000,000 salary cap and play your nine against everybody else’s 9.

Here’s how the scoring works: Daily Joust Fantasy Hockey Scoring Breakdown:
