The start of the NHL season is right around the corner, that is why we are excited to announce for the first time DraftKings we will be offering preseason hockey DFS!
Our first preseason set will be this coming Monday September 17th, this historic game slate is expected to be posted in the DraftKings lobby this afternoon. We will not be including any split squad games during preseason, and our contests will only support games that take place in NHL rinks.
In addition, our preseason sets will include satellites into two of our biggest games to start the season. We also intend to offer satellites for these contests during NFL weekends.
1) $5 Puck Drop Special on opening night, Wednesday Oct 3rd
2) $275 Icebreaker Special on Thursday Oct 4
Since DraftKings has not offered NHL Preseason previously, we decided to start off with slightly conservative guarantees. You have our commitment to continue to grow the games as they fill – and then of course step on the gas once the regular season starts!
