We're one calendar month into the National Hockey League (NHL) season, so it's time to provide an update on the 2019-20 CARHA Hockey fantasy pool.

Participants this year are once again playing for some amazing prizing, which this year is a $500 gift certificate to the NHL Shop for first place, a $350 gift certificate to Sport Chek for second place, and $150 to CARHA Hockey's new store for third place!

Three teams have broken away from the pack ever so slightly to start the year, with "wooooobigshooter" occupying first place with 267 points, "JefryOG" in second place with 266 points, and "Chaps88" rounding out the top three with 265 points.

That's not to say that everyone else isn't also in the running - the fourth place team is only three points back of third place, and there's tons of teams within striking distance.

These things can all change overnight with the amount of scoring in the NHL so far.

It's the top line of the Boston Bruins leading the way for the top teams so far, with Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron all having monster seasons.

Connor McDavid also continues to be Connor McDavid, but hopefully most teams picked him in the first box!

A reminder to all players that you have five (5) trades over the course of the season, which can be used at any time. Take advtange!

Good luck to you all.
