The Nation Drafts Playoff Pool: Play for Charity, Fun, and Glory


It’s nearly the end of the hockey season, and while we’re starting to get excited at the prospect of the playoffs(!), we’re also excited to announce the return of something we do every year at this time: the Nation Drafts playoff pool!

The Nation Drafts playoff pool is fun, inexpensive, proceeds benefit a worthy cause, and you could win prizes! What’s not to love? Read on for more details.


It costs $20 to play. You go to, sign up and choose a team of playoff-bound NHLers. The deadline to sign up is 3pm MT on April 15th – the first day of the playoffs. Full rules and regulations are available at

Our charity partner this season is Earth Group, and a portion of all money raised will go to them in an effort to provide life essentials to needy folks around the world.


So, you get to play a fantasy pool and help out a great charity, but we know you – you also care about glory and prizes. Prizing has been beefed up this season.
