As of next Monday, there will be three weeks left in the NHL regular season. Beginning last week, we are running weekly contests here at DobberHockey. Each week, there will be a list of players provided with a specific scoring system. The entrant with the most points at the end of each week will receive an autographed 8x10 photo (Ribeiro, Sullivan, Boyes, or Spezza). To reward our loyal DobberHockey members, those with over 1000 posts on the forums will be given a slight advantage. However, if you make a shrewd selection, it won’t matter if your post count is low.


For the second week, the points system will reward shots on goal and penalty minutes. Of the list below, select one player (those with over 1000 posts select two, and the better one will count at the end of the week).


Blake Comeau

Viktor Stalberg

Michael Grabner

Chris Kunitz

Patric Hornqvist

Devin Setoguchi

Mike Richards

Nik Antropov

Eric Fehr

Bobby Ryan

Lee Stempniak

Brian Gionta

Peter Mueller

Ryan Kesler

Jarome Iginla



Shots on goal are worth two points each, and penalty minutes are worth a point each (so a fight would be five points). For example, a player finishing the week with 11 shots on goal and nine penalty minutes would have 31 points.


In the event of a tie (which is likely if we receive a lot of entries), the tiebreaker will be plus-minus related. Simply send me the player (**NOT JUST ON THIS LIST, BUT ANY NHL PLAYER**) who you think will finish the week with the lowest/worst plus-minus in the league for the week.



Week 2 scoring will run from Monday March 22nd to Sunday March 28th.


The cut-off for submissions is midnight EST/9pm PST on Sunday March 21st . Send your pick (or picks, depending on post count) to me ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

In the subject line, put “DobberHockey Contest Week 2”, and in the body of the email, include your selection (with the tiebreaker) and username on the forum (if applicable).

... yes, and that was the case last week as well. Everything is done on a week-by-week basis. You are picking the player that will have the lowest +/- between March 22 and 28

... Just a bit of clarification needed: the tiebreaker question has changed slightly from last week. Now it says who will finish the week with the lowest +/- in the league for the week. So, it's only this coming week that counts?
