All games will be ONE 40-minute running time. (45-minute ice times) 3 min warm-up. Once your game has ended, please exit the bench area and back into your change rooms so that the next set of teams can warm up.
Face-offs will occur only at the beginning of the game, in case of coincidental penalties, or if the puck leaves the ice surface.
When play is stopped due to the goalie controlling the puck, a whistle will signal the attacking players to vacate the zone (behind the blue line). Once all the attackers have exited the zone, the players may re-enter to resume play immediately. They may not challenge the opposition until they have all exited the zone.
Attacking prematurely may result in a penalty for the offending team (after their first warning). Treat like a delayed offside
There will be no icing calls.
All offside plays at the blue-line will be deemed delayed offside and the referee will call for the offending
players to release the puck and exit the zone. Once all the offending players have exited the zone
together, they may re-enter the offensive zone. Treat like a delayed offside
Teams do not switch ends. The home team will take the Southside and the Visiting team will take the Northside
After any goal, the team which has scored, must retreat to the center red line and then can attack the
team that was just scored on. Treat like a delayed offside. If the team that just scored does not have all
players clear center ice a penalty shot will be awarded to the team who was just scored on.
There are no time-outs.
If a puck is deflected out of the rink there will be a normal face-off in the appropriate place.
1. Floods will occur after each 2 game set.
Player shifts will be 1 minute and 30 seconds in length. A buzzer will run to signal the end of each shift.
Bench doors MUST REMAIN CLOSED until the sound of the buzzer. If for any reason the buzzer does
not sound, the players must wait until it does. Failure to do so will result in a penalty shot
Once the buzzer sounds, players must relinquish control of the puck immediately where it is and vacate
the ice. The new players may enter onto the ice surface immediately.
Failure to immediately relinquish control of the puck at the buzzer or new players entering the ice
surface prematurely may result in a penalty for the offending team.
