A fun new diversion, reminiscent of the “One Night Fantasy Challenges” we did during the 10th anniversary year, Capwise Threes allow you to put your fantasy knowledge to the test in a bite-sized format.  One night each month, we’ll choose three NHL games to highlight.  From the teams playing, choose three players to compete in three scoring categories.  Compete for prizes each month, and for a season-long prize pool that might be worth hundreds of dollars!  Full details are below…

When: There are seven contest nights (see full schedule below).  On the selected night, we’ll highlight three NHL games for our Capwise Threes contest.

Scoring Categories: Three scoring categories will be chosen at random for each matchup — one each from our three qualities: Skill, Effort and Grit.

Scoring Categories (one from each quality)














Pick your team: From the three highlighted NHL games, you’ll pick three skaters — one who makes $3 million or less (AAV), one who makes $6 million or less, and one with no salary limit.

Scoring: You will accumulate stats in the three chosen categories for your three chosen players.  Your total stats in each category will be compared to all other competitors, and points will be assigned depending on how you rank (1 point for the team with the worst total in a category, 2 points for next worst, and so on).  Total points across all three categories will determine your overall score!

Tiebreakers: You’ll predict the winner of each of the three NHL games — best overall predictions wins the tiebreaker.  As a second tiebreaker, you’ll also guess the total goals scored among the three games.  Closest guess without going over wins the second tiebreaker.  Prize pool will be split evenly if anyone remains tied.

Entry Fee: Each entry costs $9.  You may submit up to three entries per Game.

Monthly Prizes: The winner of each individual contest takes home one-third of the entry fees for that contest.

Season-long Competition: The top five finishers each month earn points.  Top three point-winners for the season win cash prizes (equal to one-third of the overall take)!

Monthly Point Earnings
1st Place 10 points
2nd Place 5 points
3rd Place 4 points
4th Place 3 points
5th Place 2 points


Season Long Prizes
1st Place 70% of prize pool
2nd Place 20% of prize pool
3rd Place 10% of prize pool


Capwise Fundraiser: The total take is split three ways — one-third goes to the monthly contest winner; one-third is added to the overall prize pool; and the remaining one-third goes to the Capwise coffers for covering site expenses and future growth.  Play for fun, while supporting your favorite fantasy organization!
