Press Release: We did it again. As the leader in fantasy hockey innovation, DobberHockey's Frozen Pool has introduced another kick-ass tool – FREE to everyone. In addition, some popular tools have been moved from the members section and made available to you for free.

 

First, the new tool

 

This is a "newsfeed" covering Fantasy Hockey. It's a bullet list of player info that gives you the lowdown on a player, hyperlinked to the source. Injuries, scratches, streaks and more all at your fingertips. Each line links to the player's profile (more on this below), as well as the "Tweet" or the news item that it was found. Find the new tool here, or via the navigation menu up top, or by just going to the Frozen Pool section. Here's a screen shot:

Secondly, we have moved some tools into the free section. There are several sites out there who have effectively taken Jason Arbuthnot's idea, format and layout on a couple of things and have re-created it and made it available for free. While their product is not as thorough as Jason's, it's good enough for a lot of readers who were quite offended having to suddenly pay 60 to 83 cents per month (depending on the package) for something that was previously free. The result has seen some cannibalization of DobberHockey's traffic growth.

 

Because these tools are free elsewhere, we have made the move to offer them free here, adding them to the lengthy list of free products/information already made available at DobberHockey. These 'free' tools are:

 

  1. 1. Quick Reports – Line Combos – Last Game

This gives you, with a quick click of the team, the precise line combos by percentage of their shifts together, during the team's last game.

 

  1. 2. Quick Reports – Line Combos – Last 3 Games

Same as above, but for the last three games.

 

  1. 3. Player Fantasy Profiles

If you select a player, this tool will give you his stats over the last several games, as well as line combo information and a chart graphing his ice time.

 

 

And on top of this, we still have enough value and innovation to make a purchase of the rest of the tools still worthwhile. A membership at Frozen Pool ($9.99 annual, $2.99 month, or as little as $7.00 with other packages) gives you the following tools:

 

  1. REAL TIME line combos. That's right. A game going on right now? Get in there and check out the lines that have been put together so far. Sample pic here.
  2. CUSTOM dated line combos. Any year going back six years, any start date through any end date.
  3. LINE PRODUCTION. How did a player do playing with certain players
