Penguins Introduce ‘Extra Attacker’ Fantasy Hockey

Pittsburgh Penguins Introduce ‘Extra Attacker’ Fantasy Hockey

The Pittsburgh Penguins have introduced a new fantasy hockey game, “Extra Attacker,” on the team’s website , www.pittsburghpenguins.com.

The game was developed in partnership with Electric Owl Studios, a locally-based game studio formed by Carnegie Mellon University graduates.

“Extra Attacker is a Penguins-themed game that was created to add another touch-point with fans in Pittsburgh and around the world,” said James Santilli, the team’s’ vice president of marketing. “It will enable fans to utilize their knowledge of the Penguins’ roster and also encourage them to follow the team more closely.”

In “Extra Attacker,” fans can test their talents in managing the Penguins lineup. It’s free to play, and participants can also set up their own leagues and compete against one another.

The game is starting with a two-week “pre-season,” so that players may familiarize themselves with the concept. The regular season starts Jan. 5. Fans who register at www.pittsburghpenguins.com will have a chance to compete for weekly prizes, including autographed memorabilia and tickets.

The Penguins were introduced to Electric Owl Studios by the Pittsburgh Technology Council. Electric Owl focuses on children’s and web-based development, and the company produces simple, engaging activities and games appropriate for all ages.

hm looks pretty cool.
I may have missed it, but can you change your roster nightly? or is it one set roster for the entire week?

From the site:

"You can change your roster every game or keep it the same, just have your lineup set no later than 5 minutes before game time."

The only thing I don't like about that site is where you get 25 points just for logging in. That is dumb.

You might want to make a separate post from this with the league info and have it stickied or something.

I'm getting the same thing. Loads to like 70% then freezes. Could be because we're in Europe?
