Be sure to set your final roster for the GP Final before the event begins on Friday afternoon. Due to an illness in her family, Mao Asada will fly home to be with her family and will miss the Grand Prix Final. We wish her the best of luck and our thoughts are with her at this time. As a result, she has been removed from the Fantasy Skating roster, please update your teams accordingly.
