Olympic Pool

Welcome to the official DobberHockey Olympic Pool! We have managed to secure some great sponsors to both run the pool and reward the winners at the end! The pool is absolutely free to join, and is being run by our friends over at Armchair Pools. To join the pool, simply click the link here, and register a team name. You will then be asked to pick your players - don’t worry about making your final selections now, you can log back in to the site at any time before the Olympics begin and change your picks.

As for the prizes…

1st Place - The winner of the DobberHockey Olympic Pool will receive a brand new, autographed Steve Yzerman Team Canada jersey courtesy of The Sports Lettering Company. The jersey comes with a COA from Lucky Sports (formerly StevieY Authentics), and is absolutely stunning. Check out some pictures.

Do you have a blank sports jersey that needs a player name and number...look no further! The Sports Lettering Company crests to impress, whether its hockey, baseball, basketball, or football. Give them a call (416) 412-7111, or email them at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with your questions.

2nd Place - The runner-up will receive a beautiful signed Jaromir Jagr Washington Capitals jersey, courtesy of your friend and mine, Sin Bin. Jagr is not in the NHL any more, but he will be a big part of the Czech Olympic Team competing in Vancouver! It is because of great members like Sin Bin that DobberHockey is able to grow as both a website and a community.

3rd Place - If you are unable to land one of the top two spots, don’t worry, as we will take care of you. 3rd place will receive one copy of the 2010 DobberHockey Ultimate Fantasy Pack! This usually sells for $28.99 (a good deal anyway, if you ask me), and includes the following:

Dobber's Midseason Guide 09-10 (value $8.99)
Dobber's Interactive Playoff Draft List 2010 (value $8.99)
Dobber's Fantasy Prospect Report 2010 (value $13.95)
Dobber's Fantasy Guide 10-11 (value $9.99)
Dobber's Preseason Draft List 10-11 (value $8.99)

If you end up coming third and have already purchased your ultimate pack like you should, send me an email and we will figure something out!


4th Place - Do you and your buddies run a hockey pool that is tough to track on the regular sites like Yahoo and ESPN? Fear not. In addition to helping run this pool, the kind folks over at Armchair Pools have graciously donated free pools until 2014 (the next Olympics)!!!


This includes pools that you manage as well as those pools in which you are just a participant.  Your free pools come with all the standard Armchair Pool features, which include: 
-  a customizable pool standings page that displays only the stats you want to see
-  a chat-based trash talk area with the ability to send private messages
-  a Facebook plugin that allows you to view and manage your pools directly from your Facebook account.

5th-10th Place
- The contestants that round out the top 10 will receive DobberHockey gift packs, thanks to James T. Paterson, a loyal DobberHockey reader and Life Insurance/investment advisor: from New Liskeard, Ontario. Thanks again, James! The gift packages may include Olympic magnets, Swiss Army knives, LED flashlights, pens, and so on.


Finally, I personally will be awarding a prize to the user with the funniest team name. The winner will receive an autographed 8x10 photo of Eric Staal in a Team Canada jersey.

... I'm guessing in the event of a tie, the jersey will just be split in half. You can decide if you want the front half or the back.
