Popular NHL hockey pool returns

Dave Creamer Memorial Bursary Fund pool entry form in Oct. 1 issue of the Record

 

 

 

It’s not whether your team wins or loses, it’s how you’re doing in your hockey pool that counts.

With the 2013-14 NHL season just around the corner and fantasy fever about to boil over, the timing could not be better for the Dave Creamer Memorial Bursary Fund Hockey Pool.

Your $20 entry gets you a shot at winning first place prize money of $1,000. Second place is $500 and third place $200 while there are $100 prizes for 50th, 100th and 150th place.

You can enter as many teams as you wish. All proceeds are donated to  Highland Secondary School and G.P. Vanier Secondary School providing two student bursaries.

The official entry form will be printed – once only, so don’t miss it – in the Tuesday, Oct. 1 edition of the Record. Tuesday is also the deadline for entries, as the NHL season opens that night.

Poolies select one player from each of 15 boxes. You will be e-mailed a login and password from HockeyDraft.ca where you can get daily updates, pool standings, player injuries and personal scoring stats.

The official entry form will have details on scoring and where to drop off or mail the form.

“It’s the most fun you can have in hockey without cheering for the Boston Bruins,” a hockey pool veteran declared.

This is the third year for the popular pool. It ran in 2010-11 and 2011-12 but not last season due to the NHL lockout.

The hockey fund bursary was started by Pati Creamer in memory of her husband Dave, who passed away in May 2009. Dave made many friends through the golf industry and his deep involvement with hockey over the years led to numerous relationships with youth in the Valley. Pati runs Leading Edge Hockey Development.
