2022/2023 VMHA Hockey Pool
Here is how the NHL Ticket Pool works:
Every ticket comes with a unique combination of 3 pre-assigned teams for each week of the pool. Since tickets are pre-assigned, there is no need to pick your teams and therefore no sports knowledge is required to play. Only sold tickets will be activated for the pool.
View a sample ticket here.
The goals scored by the 3 teams on your ticket for all games played in the given week will be added together for a combined total score. The top 3 scoring tickets will win the cash prizes for the given week.
A tie in any given week will be broken using the highest point differential. Point differential is determined by subtracting the total number of goals allowed by the 3 teams from the total number of goals scored. Any remaining ties will split the money for that prize.
The pool will use Hockey Reference as the official source for NHL game scores. Sunday night games will conclude the week's schedule and results will be posted on the pool web page by 12:00PM (noon) PST each Monday during the 12 weeks of the pool.
Sunday night games will conclude the week’s schedule and results will be posted on the pool web page by 12:00PM PST every Tuesday morning during the 12 weeks of the pool.
There are 3 weekly cash prizes awarded to the 3 highest goal scoring tickets in the NHL Hockey Pool for each week, and remember, each ticket is good for 12 weeks!
- 1st prize $250
- 2nd prize $125
- 3rd prize $75
Winners will be contacted by email to confirm their ticket and collect their prize. If the winner does not claim their prize within 90 days and all attempts to contact the winner have failed, the prize will be awarded to the next highest scoring ticket holder. All winners will be announced on https://fanraise.ca/vmha/
In rare cases, unforeseen events such as the COVID-19 pandemic may impact the pool's game schedule. If the entire league is impacted by such an event, and 1 or more consecutive weeks of games according to the pool schedule are cancelled, the scores from the exact same week range will be used from the most recent, previous season played.
What is your role as a VMHA member?
Simply put, support your VMHA. Start by buying a ticket yourself and sell lots of tickets to people in your inner circle. That's the best way to participate.
Remember, this is your money you are raising. It’s EASY…a $20 price tag for 12 unique chances to win requires no hard sale.
Each family registered in VMHA will be responsible to do their part and sell as many tickets as possible. VMHA would be grateful of each family sells a minimum of 5 tickets.
