Fantasy Hockey kicks off a new season along with the Flames on Thursday, October 7th as they battle the rival Oilers. The new-look Flames are back for another NHL campaign and so is Fantasy Hockey. With a new roster of players to choose from, this season should prove to be very interesting for Fantasy Hockey enthusiasts.
Staying under the $20 million per-game salary cap will be a bit easier this season. With only two players at $5 million (Iggy and Kipper) there are many line options waiting. SIGN UP NOW!WHAT IS FLAMES FANTASY HOCKEY?
