Select Re-Rates

-After sim re-rates, teams will receive 3 Select Re-Rates per off-season.  The player age for eligibility is 32 and under.

Select Re-Rates are a set of re rates run with a different FHL version that produce much more favorable re-rates.

Rosters/Line-Ups:

Each team must dress 20 players for every game (18 skaters and 2 goalies)

The standard line-ups are: 12F/6D with all forwards assigned to one of four even strength lines and 2 defenceman double-shifting on the 4th even strength line. 

You can also use 11F/7D and 10F/8D provided any double shifted players have their second shift on the 4th line only. 

During the playoffs - teams are allowed to have ONE dressed player that can be totally benched or a PP/PK specialist only.  In other words, you can double-shift a forward on the 4th line without having to dress and assign a 7th defenceman.

Arena Seating Additions

Arena seating is between 17,000-18,000

Teams can add seats in the off-season with a cost as follows:

250 seats = $25,000,000

 

Prospect League:

The main resource league for the Retro Entry Draft.   Players from the corresponding annual NHL Entry Draft are created and placed in the Prospect League for Retro team drafting.   

-Farm streaks are ON in the Prospect league, so players are eligible to receive mid-season changes to their skills/OV if they are on the farm team of their prospect team. 

As long as players are under 20 years they can remain in the Prospect League regardless of OV rating.

Once they turn 20 years old, they are then subject to be automatically called up to the Pro league based on age or OV.  The below limits are used to determine when a player will be automatically called up from Prospect to the Pro league. 

Automatic call-ups:  Age 24 OR Age 20+/75OV
