Web Sim Hockey partners with Laurentian University Sports Administration Program

web sim hockeyWeb Sim Sports Inc., a studio specializing in online sports gaming, launched a unique hockey simulator in July 2009, Web Sim Hockey, which is a multiplayer strategy game played entirely on the Web. As part of the Sports Administration program offered by Laurentian University, Web Sim Hockey is being used for educational purposes to provide a realistic management experience for the students.

The goal of the game is to manage a professional hockey team in every aspect:

  • finances
  • drafts
  • trades
  • lineups
  • on-ice strategies and more

With over 275,000 monthly visits and 4.25 million page views, Web Sim Hockey is on the rise since its 2009 launch, with more than 7500 teams being managed every day in over 315 virtual leagues.

 

“We are very impressed with the extent of the simulation and believe it is a very valuable tool for our course – The Business of Hockey,” said Dr. Ann Pegoraro, director of the School of Sports Administration in the Faculty of Management.

With the help of Dr Pegoraro, the management experience will then be exported to other universities in North America so that other students can experience this simulation as a real-life learning tool.
