The 2018-19 HFNHL season will begin Tuesday October 2nd, with a somewhat condensed preseason schedule. Preseason Plan Start: Tuesday October 2nd Finish: Monday October 8th Sim plans: There will be 3 game days a night for the duration of the preseason The home page has been updated with a link for the preseason index page. Use it, and only it, to access current rosters. Team direct links at the bottom of the home page are NOT correct at this point. For those wanting a direct link... Index: HFNHL - index League File: http://hfnhl.org/2019/preseason/HFNHL-PRE.stc Action items & reminders Waivers: All players have been called up to pro rosters. Everyone is required to submit lines by end of night Saturday October 6th so players are on waivers by the end of preseason. If you have a player aged 25+ that was just signed as a UDFA this summer they are exempt from waivers and can be submitted to SimGod for that clearance. Anyone who does not submit lines will face discipline from the Commish and will have their rosters set for them without input. The post with more details can be found here: http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showthread.php?t=2102811&highlight=waivers. Minimum roster requirements: By the start of the regular season all teams must have 3 goalies, 8 defenseman, and 14 forwards under contract in your system. Prospect Activations: All required prospect activations must be completed by Saturday October 6th. If any eligible prospects are found after the deadline they will be automatically created at max ELC salary and penalties may apply. Don't forget to check for Euro players returning to NA that must be activated as well. Skaters - 50 NHL games Goalies - 25 NHL games Salary cap/floor: As a reminder, this years cap is $79.5M and floor is $58.8M. Lines: Submit through Dropbox as usual. If you lost access or can't get in let me know. Those of you who posted lines recently will need to do so again with the new league file please and thank you. Regular Season Plan Pending everyone getting lines in the regular season will tentatively begin Wednesday October 10th. We will run double headers for as long as needed to catch up to the NHL then will be back to one game a night.
