-Ticket Prices: are managed by the league and cannot be requested to be changed.

-There are NO salary caps (minimum or maximum) in the league, however:

teams under $25 million pro payroll will be subject to a lowered ticket price if their team funds are $10 Million or more.


-Negative Funds

Teams must maintain good finances.

If a team has a projected negative balance then they will be blocked from making any trades that add more salary. 

If a team reaches a negative balance then the league may waive players or release players to reduce Pro payroll.

UFA Age:

Players age 1 year at the end of season when re-rates are done.

Players that turn 28 and up at the end of the season/re-rates are considered UFA. 


Re-Sign Tokens:  Every team gets TWO re-sign tokens at the beginning of each regular season.  (A 1 year re-sign and a 3 year re-sign).  They CAN be traded to another team.  You can carry over ONE re-sign token to the following season.  You can also combine them to re-sign one of your players to a 4 year deal. 

All token re-signs are based on player OV.

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.

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.
