First there was Sir Evander Kane from the Rangers of New York. Ruler of NSHL18. Champion.
NSHL19 saw a new ruler: Sir Tyler Seguin. Sir Tyler hailed from the Islanders of New York. Champion.
Most recently the Kingdom of the NSHL was ruled by Sir Tyler Ennis from the south. Sir Tyler II represented the Panthers of Florida, Miami to be precise. Champion and, our current King.
In short order the throne will be vacated for the 21st NSHL season. However, the NSHL requires a King and a King the NSHL will have.
The quest to crown a King will commence on Day 10 of the NSHL calendar under it's 21st moon. 120 participants will be sent by their teams to do battle over the course of the season with one (and only one) becoming the new King of the Rink.
The tournament will see 12 Rounds, each lasting approximately 14 sim days in the most aggressive format the young tournament has ever seen. The first "cut" will see 1/3 of the field slashed as we drop from 120 to 80. Surely the season-long the battle will be fought with far more vigour than in seasons past given players will be subject to Rivalries likely to intensify with each passing round.
Teams will nominate and send forth five (5) participants (4 forwards, 1 defenceman) they deem worthy of the crown.
The deadline for entries is DAY 7.
You may want to prepare your team for battle. It's a long road to the top and The Kingdom is waiting..
This year's group draws and results will be updated in Discord rather than Twitter.
|1||10-23||120||10 groups of 12||8 per group|
|1||24-37||80||8 groups of 10||8 per group|
|3||38-51||64||8 groups of 8||6 per group|
|4||52-65||48||6 groups of 8||6 per group|
|5||66-79||36||6 groups of 6||4 per group|
|6||80-93||24||3 groups of 8||6 per group|

Scoring for the KOTR is based off of in-game statistics players produce during the course of the season. If a player is injured, demoted or suspended and cannot earn points they will struggle to advance.
The scoring legend is as follows:
|+/-||0.5 pt (+/-)|
Ties are broken by most Goals, then Most Assists and finally higher +/- in the round. If after these tie-breakers players remain tied, all tied players are eliminated except in the Finals.
The Finals "final" tie-breaker is total accumulated score throughout the tournament.
FTW is based on NSHL achievement unless specifically stated otherwise.
Teams "flag" listed items they have achieved to capture those items for their team. The more items a team "flags", the better.
Once a team flags an achievement, they may not claim any other achievement from that game or any game prior
Teams may "steal" flags provided the achievement is made on a day AFTER the initial claim was made
Once a team thinks they have a number of items that may earn them a prize and at least two (2) sim days have past since their last claim, the team can "lock in" those items which ensures no one else can steal them. Locking in also means the #LockedIn team cannot flag anything for the rest of the season.
Teams will use the FTW Discord to capture their flags.
Within the #FTW channel, a team must @NSHLCommish, name the item they are capturing, as well as the Game # and Schedule Day they are referring to. Once verified, a flag will be awarded.
To "lock in" a team needs to use the #FTW channel, mention @NSHLCommish and state they're #LockedIn.
The #LockedIn feature may only be used up until the Trade Deadline.

The league has opened up "Prop Bets" for the NSHL21 season. 10 True or False questions GMs may place a wager on.
GMs may choose to place a $1M OR 1 Training Camp Point wager on the prop bets below. First place will receive the pot from all entries in the currency they wagered in, regardless of what other GMs chose.
The tie-breaker will be used only to break a tie for 1st Place and will be highest without going over, or if all those tied are over, the closest too the actual number.
The winner will receive either $20 M cash or 20 TC PTS with 21 entries overall. Money or TC POINTS will not be taken from teams until PropBets have been settled.
Here is what teams have signed up for as a wager/their winnings:
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will have OVER 4.5 PIMs in the regular season.
At least one (1) of Florida or Los Angeles will make the playoffs.
A first time NSHL Stanley Cup Champion will be crowned in NSHL21.
The winner of the Calder Trophy in NSHL21 will NOT be a former NSHL 1st Round Pick.
A first time NSHL Hart Trophy winner will be crowned in NSHL21.
At least one (1) of the HART, NORRIS or VEZINA winners in NSHL21 will be back-to-back winners from NSHL20.
There will be an injury in a Level 4 or Level 5 RIVALRY game that causes a player’s CON to drop below 44.5.
STHS will hand out more than 20.5 SUSPENSION GAMES in the NSHL over the course of the NSHL21 regular season.
There will be more than 1.5 shutout-based pairs eliminated in PSC.
The average number of trades completed over the course of the season by the three (3) teams who trade the least from Opening Day to the Trade Deadline will be greater than 2.5 trades.
The TOTAL number of suspension games handed out by STHS over the duration of the NSHL & MSHL in the regular season is:
Here are the Rivalry levels for NSHL21:
The concept of the Rivalry is new to the league and quite frankly we have yet to see the impact of a season full of Level 2, 3, 4 and 5 battles. There's a lot to learn.
As such, following Game 1 of a Level 5 or Level 4 Rivalry can be lowered by 1 intensity level if both teams send an e-mail to the league (similar to a trade confirmation).
Rivalries may be lowered 1 intensity level at a time until Level 3, following the procedure above.
In NSHL21 every team has a chance at $10,000,000 in cold, hard cash. All you have to do is not f*ck up.
Easy enough, n'est pas?
With the introduction of Winning Streak, NSHL GMs will choose games they think they'll win. If they're right they add a "W" to their Winning Streak. If they're wrong, they're out. Done. The longest Winning Streak of the year will earn $10,000,000.
Vancouver believes they will beat Anaheim, so they tweet "Hey @NSHLAnaheim #LetsGoNSHLStreaking". Vancouver wins the game and gets a +1 "W" bringing their total to 3 wins.
Washington challenges Vancouver in an identical fashion. Vancouver wins. Washington's streak is over. Vancouver earns a "life".
Vancouver believes they will beat Calgary and challenge them via Twitter. Vancouver loses and does not earn a "W" and their total remains at 3. Since Vancouver earned a "life" from Washington, Vancouver may challenge again and keep their streak going.
Vancouver challenges Nashville and wins. Vancouver gets a +1 "W" which brings their total to 4.
Prepare yourselves, we're able to go streaking as of Opening Day.
