Rules and Regulations

How to Play

Each participant is given one "unit" to place one Pick'em entry at Underdog Fantasy that day. These "units" and "entries" are not real, rather, just a means of tracking the competition.


Pick'em entries can include Higher/Lower picks, in which you choose "Higher" or "Lower" a total given for a player's shots, saves, hits, etc.


Rivals picks, in which you choose one player over another in these categories, sometimes given an adjusted total.

NOTE: You must select a player from at least two different teams for your entry to count.

A participant's submission will be made official via Twitter, where the participant shall tweet a screenshot of the entry mentioning's official Twitter account (@PuckLuckdotcom) as well as Underdog Fantasy's account (@UnderdogFantasy).

Winning and Losing Entries

A losing entry results on the loss of one unit. An entry is considered a losing entry if one or more picks included on the entry have a failed result. Also, if a participant fails to submit an entry on a day with one or more games scheduled, it will result in an automatic loss of one unit.

A push results in zero units won or lost. An entry is considered a push if there are no losing picks on the ticket but only one or no wins.


A winning entry results in a corresponding amount of units won. A winning entry is paid out as follows:

2 winning picks on entry = 3 units

3 winning picks on entry = 6 units

4 winning picks on entry = 10 units

5 winning picks on entry = 20 units

Tournament Format

The format of this contest is a bracket-style tournament, where the participants will compete head-to-head with their matchups for that round. The first round will conclude when the first round of the NHL playoffs concludes. The second round will begin the day following the conclusion of the first round and end when the second round of the NHL playoffs conclude, and so forth.


The leaders of each matchup at the end of each round will advance to the next round, until a winner is determined. Leaders will be determined based on return on investment, which in this case will be the most "units" earned since we're using fixed units. In the event of a tie, the percentage of winning entries will be the tiebreaker, and, if still tied, a game of chance will break the tie.

NEW to 2023 - Community Participation!

Two spots in the 2023 PuckLuck Cup will be designated to community participation. This means that anyone may submit one Underdog Fantasy Pick'em entry each day in accordance to the above submission rules. Two community nominated Pick'em entries will be chosen by the PuckLuck team to count as the day's official submissions. If an entry wins, then the person responsible for the submission will win a PuckLuck Cup t-shirt!
