Possible Make-up Dates for Columbus vs. Dallas

March 16, 2014
NHL rules prohibit teams from playing on three consecutive days and this gives us a glimpse at possible makeup dates for the postponed March 10 game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Dallas Stars. Using our weekly schedule tool, it appears that March 31 and April 9 are the only possible dates for a makeup game barring any other schedule changes for the two teams. Fantasy hockey managers who are looking for a games played edge in the playoffs will want to pay close attention to the resolution of this scheduling issue.


I hope it's March 31, then I get five games that week for Columbus.

The NHL ended up choosing April 9 as the makeup date. We've updated our weekly schedule tool and roster maximizer tool to account for the changes.
