About Us

Before we get into the ‘new team member’ bit, a little bit about us…

We’re small group of Canucks from Nova Scotia (the birthplace of hockey we should note!).  We play hockey, watch hockey and argue hockey and enjoy fantasy hockey. Over the years we’ve noticed that our favorite sport doesn’t get the attention it deserves in the fantasy sports world. We’re dedicated to changing that!  We want to reach all hockey fans, not just gamblers and sharks.

We are seeking another team member with development skills.  If you love hockey as much as we do then read on…
