Fantasy Hockey is like fantasy football where people create their own teams and play games. The highest rated player on ESPN fantasy hockey is Alex Ovechkin.
One can find a fantasy Hockey team on sports websites or the major TV networks that cover hockey. ESPN offer fantasy hockey where you can choose a team and compete against others.
If an NHL player is on a one way contract and the team is attempting to send him to the minors, he must first clear waivers. Waivers is when the other 29 teams get a chance to pick the player up off of waivers and the player then becomes a member of that team. The team lowest in the standings gets first bid, and then the next team in the standings gets the second bid, and so on. If the player clears waivers, it means none of the teams picked him up.
A Beijing 2008 fantasy field hockey competition was hosted at: http://www.fantastar.com/hockeyolympics/
A typical fantasy hockey league has 8 - 12 teams but often have as many as 20.
The team claiming the player from waivers is allowed to place the player in the minors if it so chooses.
Some popular fantasy hockey pool websites include TheHockeyNews and PlayDailyFantasyHockey. NHL Fantasy and CBS Sports News are also examples of such sites.

Waivers means a few things, but most importantly, the player can be picked up by another team.
When a player is placed on waivers by a team, it allows other teams to claim that player and assume his contract. There is a provision called "right of recall" which allows that team who initially put the player on waivers to recall the player. If there is no right of recall and no team claims the player, the player is now able to be demoted to the farm system team of the parent team and paid the minor league salary.

Waivers is the term used when a team no longer wants a player. Click on the 'Waivers in Baseball' link on this page to get a better understanding of how waivers work.
That depends on which league you are in. It may stand for utility player, which would mean you can put any non-goalie in that slot.
Owned in the fantasy baseball sense simply means that a certain player is already on somebodies team. A player can either be owned (taken already), a free agent (up for grabs), or on Waivers (depending on league it may take 2-3 days for approval to sign this player). If you are looking for what % owned means in fantasy baseball. It is the percent of all fantasy baseball teams who own that player
NHL. National Hockey League.This is the big league, it consists of 30 teams. Also related to NHL is the NHL fantasy league, fantasy is how viewers can engage in the game.
Waivers are when a team wants to send a player down to the minors or farm team and they have to "waive" the rights to that player before they can send him down. If another team claims that player he is now their property. If the player clears waivers (no one claims him), he remains the property of the original team and can be sent to the minors. The player may be relaesed and can be a free agent.
to be acquired for free, the team offers a player on waivers if they are being removed from the roster, a player can be claimed, but not immediately sent after the trading deadline
The most popular is Fantasy Football (by far), followed by Fantasy Baseball. There is also Fantasy Hockey, Fantasy Basketball and Fantasy NASCAR which all seem to have about the same following.
Yes....you waive at him and he doesn't waive back
fantasy that could be real.
Many people have preferred to start their Fantasy Hockey teams with Peter Budaj. Joni Ortio is still a top picked player as well.
