Mapping Out Your Fantasy Hockey Playoffs Schedule

If you’re in a fantasy hockey league which uses a playoff system to determine the league champion, then now is the time to begin thinking about how to maximize the number of games your players will play during those three playoff weeks.

Depending on which players you own (skaters and goalies), your playoffs could be in jeopardy from the start if you own too many players from teams that play the fewest games. On the other hand, you can maximize the number of games played by making sure you own players from teams that play the most games. We have a free fantasy hockey tool called the Roster Maximizer which breaks down the NHL schedule in complete detail for all 30 teams and for any set of dates. With this tool, you’ll have full knowledge of opponents, back-to-backs, and scheduling conflicts between teams on a nightly basis.

While we strongly recommend you get acquainted with the Roster Maximizer tool, we’ve tallied up the games played by every team during the fantasy hockey playoffs below for your convenience. Note: note all of the weeks below may apply to your specific playoff system.
