5. Players statistics are accumulated from the start of the NHL Regular Season (Wednesday January 13th, 2021) and will continue to the last day of the Regular Season (Saturday 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 There is no phone or mail support inquiries for this contest unless otherwise requested or at the discretion of CI Fantasy Sports.

In the event that stats are not added within 24 hours of being reported by other agencies, we will add them and back date them appropriately to the date they were achieved. This in some instances may affect weekly prize awards standings, but weekly prize awards will not be adjusted once that prize has been awarded, and the new stats will just be added to the overall total and will not count towards the next week prize award qualification totals.


6. Weekly Prizes and Grand Prizes: Grand Prizes and Weekly prizes are displayed, announced, awarded and determined by the The Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal (TBCJ) with or without the assistance of CI Fantasy Sports. Contact the TBCJ (Host) for all matters on prize listings, and claim instructions. Prize listing may or may not be listed at, but may be listed in the call for entry ad, the weekly update ad, the host website, or at the offices of the host.  

Participants may only win one of the Grand Prizes.  Participants may only win one weekly prize category each week.


In the determination of Grand prizes and weekly prizes, in the event of a tie, the prize will be awarded using the following tie break formulas:


Sharpshooter (Most Goals that week) - The contestant who has the best +/- minus rating of the tied contestants will be ruled the winner. If they still remain tied, then the contestant with a better overall rank in the contest will be ruled the winner. If they still remain tied at this point, a random draw will be made to determine the winner of that prize category.


Mover and Shaker (Most points that week) – In the event of a tie, the contestant who has the most goals that week will be ruled the winner. If they remained tied then the contestant with the best overall +/- will be ruled the winner. If they still remain tied, then the best rankings contestant in the contest will be ruled the winner. If they still remain tied, a random draw will be made to determine the winner.


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.


Each weeks prizes and rankings are determined by points accumulated from the Monday to Sunday Games inclusive.


All Prize awards whether they are Weekly or Grand prizes are determined by the contest Host, and have no association to CI Fantasy Sports. Contestants will need to contact their local Host for all prize awards, prize listings, and qualification criteria. CI Fantasy Sports can not be held liable for any prize award or qualification criteria that each host organization takes. Contact your local Host organization for all Prizing Information.


7. A contestant may only win ONCE in each of the identified prize categories (Grand Prize and Weekly Prize 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 week 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 weekly prize categories listed by that host. 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.
