Welcome to the 3rd installment of my NHL Season tournaments! My NHL Season 2 won multiple awards in this year's Primes voting, so here's your chance to be part of the next one!
CONSIDER CAREFULLY BEFORE JOINING!
This tournament will require a long-term investment by all participants. Everyone will be playing a minimum of 82 games, with a potential for as many as 110 played by the winner and/or runner-up. As such, this tourney will span much of the calendar year. Also, if you are a high ranking player who is afraid to lose points to lower-ranked players in 1v1 tournaments, then this league probably isn't for you.
All participants must select an approved map (more on that below) and an NHL team to represent. All games are 1v1, and each team will be following the full NHL schedule, meaning you'll play 82 regular season games. I will be expanding the playoff format from 8 teams in each league to 12 teams in each league (in order to prevent players from falling completely out of playoff contention by the midway point in the season).
I shall be applying for a General Achievement Medal, to be awarded to the player who wins the President's Trophy, which goes to the team with the best regular season record.

All participants must select an approved "home map", from the list below. Maps may only be selected by ONE team. Maps are allowed or disallowed at my sole discretion. Once play begins, maps are locked in, and not permitted to be changed, with the exception of a replacement player; they will be allowed to either play on the map they are replacing for, or select a new available map from the list.
