Update: Thanks to all who showed interest. At this point, we have filled the vacancy.

Faceoff-Factor’s affiliated fantasy hockey keeper league, the UPJFHL, is looking for a manager to replace a vacated roster.

FF folks already in the league include myself and Zach Boslett, as well as commentors “Team Jyeah,” “Albert,” and “Lucas.”

The UPJFHL is a dedicated keeper league requiring a strong commitment from each of our 16 managers. We run through ESPN’s fantasy hockey manager during the season and UPJFHL.com during our summer draft.

Each team is comprised of 28 players, including no more than three goalies. Daily lineups include four centers, four left wingers, four right wingers, six defensemen, three utility-men, and two goalies.

At season’s end managers are required to protect 10 “keepers,” including one center, one left winger, one right winger, two defensemen, one goalie, and four utility-men. Managers also have the option of protecting an additional five “rookies” of any position.

While stat categories are subject to change, they include:

  • Skaters: goals, assists, +/-, penalty minutes, power play points, shorthanded points, hits, faceoff wins, shots on goal
  • Goalies: Wins, saves, save percentage, goals against average, shutouts

It’s important to note that there is a $20 league pay-in each season, with all collected money being re-distributed at season’s end to managers who won a pre-determined set of categories.

If interested, please contact me through this form.

Please be reminded that this is a long-standing league with experienced and dedicated managers. Before contacting me, be sure to consider that this is a 12-month committment, which includes an off-season draft with 24 hours allotted for each selection.

Before making our final selections, the league administrators will talk to each candidate to be sure we select the best person for the spot.
