"Fantasy Faceoff" Debuts on NHL Network Tonight

"NHL.com's Fantasy Faceoff Powered by Yahoo!" debuts tonight on NHL Network at 7 p.m. ET. No word yet on who will host and be involved, but it's good to see NHLN getting some fantasy coverage on. Following the fantasy hockey show will be the 2008 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame inductions honoring Brett Hull, Cammi Granato, Brian Leetch, and Mike Richter.

For those still on the fence about getting NHL Gamecenter Live for their computers, the NHL is offering one last free trial this Thursday, October 30th. You'll have twelve games to watch tomorrow night including Montreal-Minnesota, Boston-Calgary, and Detroit-San Jose.

UPDATE: Just found this on NHL.com by Rocky Bonanno from Monday.

"Exciting news here on the fantasy front. Coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET on the NHL Network is the debut of the new television series, "NHL.com's Fantasy FaceOff Powered by Yahoo!," bringing you even more fantasy news from around the League. Also as part of the 30-minute show, myself and several hockey-loving celebrities will go head-to-head in the Fantasy FaceOff Show Yahoo! league. Members include actors Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters) and Eddie Cahill (CSI: NY); musicians Dierks Bentley, Scruffy of the Dropkick Murphys, and The Zambonis; Hockey Hall-of-Famer Pat LaFontaine; E.J. Hradek and Don LaGreca of NHL Live!; Carrie Milbank and Steven Lee of The Hockey Show; and Fantasy FaceOff show host Rob Simpson."
