Name 5 "veteran" keepers from your roster: Any player in the ESPN player universe who has played at least one NHL game before this season. Name 2 "prospect" keepers from your roster: Any player in the ESPN player universe who will still be serving under his entry level contract the year he is kept, and who has played at least one NHL game before this season. Even if you don't wish to keep two prospects, you must at least roster and identify them as placeholders for the purposes of the draft. You may drop them immediately after the draft. (Teams are not required to roster prospects during the season.)

Draft Type
Your league conducts its own offline draft and you submit the results manually.
Your league will participate in a live online draft with ESPN's live draft software. Based on a predetermined draft order, each team takes a turn selecting a player in a set amount of time. This type of draft is sometimes called a Snake Draft, as the draft order reverses each round.
Your league's rosters are automatically drafted based on each team's pre-draft rankings list. Each team owner will receive an email upon the draft's completion.
Your league will participate in a live online auction draft using ESPN's auction draft software. In an auction draft, teams begin with a set budget and take turns nominating players to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
