5. Players statistics are accumulated from the start of the NHL Regular Season (January 13th, 2021) and will continue to the last day of the Regular Season (May 8th, 2021). Statistics are to be considered final from the day they are recovered, regardless of any subsequent changes made by any other reporting organization. CI Fantasy Sports will compile the statistics with or without the assistance of an outside statistical service. The contest statistics are adjusted at the sole discretion of CI Fantasy Sports. Statistics and rankings will be updated daily and at any subsequent time deemed necessary by CI Fantasy Sports. All Inquiries on statistics require you to contact support@cifantasysports.com. There is no phone or mail support inquiries for this contest unless otherwise requested or at the discretion of CI Fantasy Sports. Statistics are posted, allocated, and points awarded as the stats are verified by the NHL and CI Fantasy Sports. In some instances, stats may not be added for a period of 2 to 3 days due to compiling irregularities. In the event that stats are not added within 24 hours of being reported by other reporting sources, we will add them and back date them appropriately to the date they were earned. This in some instances may affect prize awards and standings, but awards will not be adjusted once that prize has been awarded (prize awards are not awarded for a period of 15 days upon being earned in most cases). The new stats will just be added to the overall total and will not count towards the next prize award qualification totals.


6. Prizing: Prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest for the top THREE (3) Finishers. In this shortened season, we will not be awarding Monthly prizes, but will acknowledge monthly category awards… Mover and Shaker (Most points gained in that month), and Sharpshooter (Most goals that month). The prizing format is outlines as below:


1st Place:       $900.00


2nd Place:      $300.00


3rd Place:       $200.00


Monthly Acknowledgments:


Mover and Shaker:  Certificate and website notice acknowledgment


Sharpshooter:  Certificate and website notice acknowledgment



Determination of the Prize awards:  In the event of a tie, the prize will be awarded using the following tie break criteria:


Grand Prize Awards: In the event of a tie for any of the Grand Prizes at the completion of the contest, the contestant with the most goals, will be ruled the winner.  If they still remain tied, then the contestant with a better overall +/- rating will be determined the winner. If they still remain tied at this point, a random draw will be made to determine the order of the winners.


All Prize awards are determined by CI Fantasy Sports. Contestants will be contacted by CI Fantasy Sports to notify them of their prize award and will arrange payment of said prize allocation.


7. A contestant may only win ONCE in each of the identified prize categories (Grand Prize and Monthly categories). Once is identified as a contestant (not an entry) who may have 2 entries in the contest. If one of the entries wins a prize in a category, then the other entry does not qualify to win at a later date, or a lower Grand Prize.

Example:   Joe Smith has entry 1 and entry 2. Entry One (1) wins the mover and shaker category in month 2, so this means Joe smith’s entry # 1 and 2 can not win the mover and shaker from that time forward. However, Joe Smith would qualify to win on entry 1 or entry 2 for any of the other monthly prize categories listed. Similarly, if Joe Smiths Entry 1 and Entry 2 finished Ranked #1 and #2 at the completion of the contest, only Entry # 1 would be awarded a prize. Entry 2 would be ignored and the next best ranking entry would be awarded the prize for finishing 2nd.


All prize winners will be required to provide valid Identification, and must claim their prizes from CI Fantasy Sports as a response to the email contact sent out. A Contestants who has 2 entries into a contest CANNOT Win more than One of the Grand Prize as stated above.
