John's Hockey Pool is a simple to play and an enjoyable hockey pool experience for anyone. The pool consists of 170 top NHL players that are divided into 17 groups of 10 players each. These groups are named Round 1, Round 2, Sophomore Round, Goalie Round, etc. and are used to create your entry to the pool. Your goal is to pick three players in each round that you believe will have the most points compared to the other players in the same round. Players gain points throughout the regular season by getting goals or assists during the game. Goalies gain points with wins and shutouts. The points accumulated by the 51 players you pick go towards your entry's total points. Prizes are awarded to the entries that accumulate the most points at the end of the regular season.
