4 PENALTIES FOR ILLEGAL BLADES The following lists what penalties are given for infractions to above blade requirements: o o o LENGTH Illegal blade length (See item B above) results in a one (1) minute minor penalty to be served by the player using the illegal stick. The stick cannot be used again until the blade is changed to one that is legal. WIDTH/HEIGTH - Illegal blade width (See item C above) results in a one (1) minute minor penalty to be served by the player using the illegal stick. The stick cannot be used again until the blade is changed to one that is legal If a player scores a goal and after a challenge is found to have used an illegal blade not only will he be issued a one (1) minute minor penalty his team will also lose the goal that he just scored. For the goal to be wiped out the challenge must occur immediately following the goal, prior to play resuming. PROCEDURE TO CHALLENGE A BLADE An opposing coach can challenge any one of the above listed blade regulations at any whistle throughout the game. If the blade is found to be illegal then the appropriate action will be taken as listed above. If the blade is found to be legal, then the team that challenged the blade will be assessed a one (1) minute minor penalty for delay of game. You are allowed to question one of the above blade restrictions per challenge. 11. Five (5) players and a goalie constitute a line. 12. A team must have a minimum of seven (7) players to start a game. There also must be at least one approved coach present on the bench to start the game. Any less is a rescheduled game, unless at the discretion of the commissioner or Board of Directors. (See Rule #41) Each team must start the game with a goalie on the rink and in the appropriate goal crease, fully dressed in the required goalie gear. 13. Any player who quits after being placed on a team roster will be ineligible to participate in the following season. This will be subject for review by the Board of Directors. 14.

A violation of this rule, by a winning team, could result in a forfeiture of that game. A head coach or asst. coach in violation of this rule, winner or loser of that game, MUST APPEAR before the Grievance Board. Exception to this rule is if a player is being disciplined for reasons listed in part B of this rule or comes late to a game. The commissioner MUST be notified of this PRIOR to EACH game. B. If a player inexcusably misses two (2) consecutive practices and/or games, the coach will not be held to the one-third rule. THE HEAD COACH OR ASST.

Any head coach or asst. coach found abusing this rule will be brought before the Grievance Board and/or the Board of Directors.
5 16. THE GAME CLOCK: This clock will stop at every whistle throughout the game. 17. THE PENALTY CLOCK: The penalty clock will start at the ensuing face-off after a penalty has been called and run with the game clock until a whistle. This is for all minor and major penalties. Offsetting penalties will result in each team STILL playing with five (5) players on the rink. For offsetting penalties, when the penalty time has expired the penalized players MUST remain in the penalty box until the next whistle. A player entering the rink before this, causing too many players on the rink, will be assessed a one (1) minute bench penalty. For ALL penalties, when the penalty time has expired, the penalized player(s) MUST exit the penalty box via the door to the rink. No jumping the wall directly back to the bench is allowed. 18. SLAUGHTER RULE: If there is a difference of seven (7) goals or more at any time throughout the third (3 rd ) period, the game clock will continue to run. Also, if there is a difference of five (5) goals or more with five (5) minutes or less remaining in the game, the game clock will continue to run and will not stop at any whistles unless directed by the referee. 19. All games will begin as scheduled. Teams must be ready within ten (10) minutes after the official game time or a delay of game penalty may be assessed to that team. Note: When a team has the required minimum of 7 players, the game will begin at the scheduled game time. The ten minutes will only be used if a team is waiting for the minimum of 7 players to arrive. Extra time will not be given to wait for a goalie or other player when there are the minimum 7 players present. Also, as noted in Rule #11, there must be an approved coach on the bench in order to begin the game. 20. Every player, when not on the rink during the game and standing along the boards must keep their helmets on and keep their stick behind their benches, on the ground, not overhanging the boards. This infraction could result in a one (1) minute bench penalty to that player s team. 21. The referee is part of the playing area and if the ball hits him/her during play the game will continue. EXCEPTION: If the ball hits the referee and goes into either goal, the goal WILL NOT be allowed. A face- off will occur at the closest face-off spot by that goal. 22. TIME OUTS: Each team will receive one time out per game. If a team has only 7 players, a second time will be awarded by the referees. In an OT setting, each team will receive one timeout for the entire OT session, even if there are multiple OT periods. 23. HANDPASSES: A hand pass to another teammate IS NOT allowed. If a hand pass is called on the team in the offensive zone, the face-off will come out of that zone into the first neutral zone's face-off spot. If a hand pass is called on the team in their defensive zone, the face-off will take place at the closest face-off spot, closest to their goal. 24. The ball cannot be INTENTIONALLY kicked or directed into an opponent s goal by any part of a player s body (Hands, feet, head, etc.). If this occurs the referee will disallow the goal and a face-off will take place all the way back into the offender s zone, closest to their goal.
6 25. A. If the ball is shot out of the rink from the neutral zone, a face-off will take place at the closest face-off spot in the neutral zone, from where the ball was shot out. If you shot the ball out from your own defensive zone, then a face-off will take place at the face-off spot closest to your goalie, from where the ball was shot out. If the attacking (offensive team) shoots the ball out in the opponent s zone, the face-off will take place out of that zone to the closest neutral zone face-off spot. If the ball is deflected out, the face-off will be at the point of deflection. B. Anytime a player shoots the ball out of the rink without it deflecting off of someone or something in their own defensive zone a minor penalty for delay of game will be assessed. If the ball is shot into the benches or penalty box this rule will not apply. C. Any goalie that shoots the ball out of the rink, without it deflecting off of someone or something, will be called for delay of game penalty. 26. After any penalty resulting in a power play for one team, the face off will take place at the face off dot closest to the shorthanded team goalie. After offsetting penalties face off will continue to take place at the nearest face off dot to where the penalties occurred. 27. The goalie may freeze the ball only in the zone behind the closest face-off dots. This is providing that an attacking player is a scoring threat. The goalie cannot step behind the net and freeze the ball UNLESS some part of his foot or body remains in the designated goalie crease area and the attacking player is a scoring threat. If the goalie freezes the ball otherwise, then a delay of game penalty WILL be called. 28. No player except for the goalie is allowed to close his/her hand on the ball and take a step. A player is allowed to close their hand over the ball and immediately drop the ball to his/her feet without penalty. If a player takes a full step with the hand closed over the ball, a one (1) minute minor penalty for delay of game will be assessed. If this occurs while the player is inside his/her own goalie crease, instead of the one (1) minute minor penalty, the opposing team will be awarded a penalty shot. Any deliberate attempt by any player other than the goalie to freeze the ball inside his or her own crease will result in a penalty shot. 29. If a team decides to change goalies during a game there will not be any warm-up for that goalie except for an injury. Also, except for any injury, the new goalie must be ready to play when the referee is ready for the next face-off, or a timeout will be charged to that team. You are not allowed to change goalies when there is 5 minutes or less to go in the third period at all (unless an injury occurs). 30. The BLUE LINES will constitute OFFSIDES. The ball MUST cross the BLUE LINE before an offensive player may enter the opposing team's zone. There will be DELAYED OFF-SIDES FOR ALL DIVISIONS. The offensive team MUST clear the offensive zone before touching the ball. If, at the discretion of the referee, the offensive player touches the ball without making the effort to clear the zone, INTENTIONAL OFFSIDES will be called. This will result in the face-off taking place in that player s own zone at the face-off dot closest to his/her own goalie.
7 31. ICING: JUNIOR AND SENIOR LEAGUE: Icing will be called if the defensive player shoots the ball all the way down, passed the opponents goal line if he/she shoots it before he/she reaches his/her own BLUE LINE. The player MUST reach his/her own blue line before shooting the ball all the way down or icing will be called. Icing will be called IMMEDIATELY. This means icing will be whistled as soon as the ball crosses the opponent s goal line. It is not necessary for the opposing player to touch the ball for icing to be whistled EXCEPTION: In the Minor Division only, the ball will need to be touched by the opposing team for icing to be called. If the opposing player can play the ball prior to it crossing the goal line, the referee will waive off icing. If the ball is touched in any way, by either team, prior to it crossing the goal line, icing will be waived off. If the goalie touches the ball or the ball travels through the crease, icing will be washed out. 32. NO CHECKING IS ALLOWED. Incidental positioning contact will ONLY be allowed in front of the goalie nets, this area is approximately ten (10) feet in front of the goalie nets. 33. If any opponent is found in the goalie crease for more than three (3) seconds, the whistle will be blown for a stop in play. A face-off will then take place in the neutral zone closest to the team's net that caused the infraction. If a player is found to interfere with goalie while in the crease and a goal is scored, that goal will be disallowed and a face-off will take place in the neutral zone closest to the team s net that caused this infraction. Goalie interference may also result in a one (1) minute minor penalty. This will be at the discretion of the referee. If the ball precedes the player into the crease, the player may go into the crease after the ball. The 3 seconds would not start until the ball leaves the crease. A goal can be scored by a player from in the crease as long as the player does not interfere with the goalie. 34. Any player who receives three (3) penalties is the same game will be EJECTED for the remainder of that game and is subject to appear before the Grievance Board. This is solely based on the request of the referee to the league commissioner. This rule applies only to the JUNIOR, SENIOR & SUPER-SENIOR DIVISIONS ONLY. 35. HIGHSTICKING: When a player raises any part of his/her stick in attempt to play the ball ABOVE HIS/HER SOULDERS a whistle will stop play and a faceoff will occur inside the natural zone if in the offensive area or in the attacking zone if in the defensive zone. 36. BROKEN STICK: If any part of a stick is broken during play, the stick MUST BE DROPPED IMMEDIATELY. The player is not allowed to pick up that broken stick or throw it. The referee will remove the broken stick from the rink at the earliest convenient time. NO player may throw a stick from the bench to replace the broken stick. No player on the rink is allowed to hold two sticks at the same time while play is going on. No player, other than the goalie, is allowed to hold a goalie stick while on the rink and while play is going on. These infractions will be assessed a one (1) minute penalty. 37. GOLF SHOT: No golf shots are allowed. A golf shot is when a player swings his/her stick when his/her hands are closer than four (4) inches apart. This infraction will be a (1) minute penalty. 38. Any player throwing his/her stick, in an attempt to break up a break away, the attacking player fouled will be awarded a penalty shot or a one-minute penalty will be assessed. This is at the discretion of the referee. If a stick is thrown at a player heading toward an empty net, a goal will be awarded to the opposing team.
8 39. PENALTY SHOT: The player taking the penalty shot will have only the goalie to beat. The goalie MUST remain in the goalie crease until the player crosses the blue line. The player taking the penalty shot will start at the center line face-off dot. Once the player starts to move forward, the PLAYER must continue to move forward or latterly (side to side) but NOT backwards. After starting, the player must stay in continuous motion towards the goal crease. The player will only get ONE shot with no rebounds. The penalty shot will be over when one of the following happens: the player scores, the goalie makes the save, or the player (not the ball) stops moving towards the goal crease. Also, once the ball crosses the goal line (the red line extending the width of the rink) the penalty shot is over. (Note: The possibility exists that the ball could hit or touch the goalie but continue to go forward and into the net. This IS a goal. The goalie MUST have control of the ball or stop it's forward progress for the shot to be over. The attacking player, though, CAN NOT attempt another shot. Also if the ball were to hit either post or the crossbar and then deflect off of the goalie and go in this IS also a goal). 40. PENALTIES: These penalties will be considered MINOR and will be given one (1) minutes of penalty time. *NOTE * Some of these penalties could be considered MAJOR if the INTENT to injure a player is determined by the referee. Referees can also assess a double minor to any penalty if not deemed flagrant but warrants a stronger penalty. Carrying a broken stick, Throwing a broken stick, Illegal stick, Checking, High Sticking, Cross Checking, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, Interference, Tripping, Slashing, Swearing, Golf Shot, Boarding, Taunting, Charging, Elbowing, Holding, Hooking, Sliding into an opponent, Arguing with a Referee, Bench Penalties. 41.

Flagrant and intentional offenses list in rule #38, Kneeing, Drawing of blood (even if accidental), Spearing, Butt Ending MATCH PENALTY - Any player given a MATCH PENALTY is AUTOMATICALLY EJECTED FROM THAT GAME. Also, if a match penalty is given in the last two (2) minutes of the third period, that player will also receive an AUTOMATIC game suspension for the next game and will APPEAR BEFORE the Grievance Board. Along with the automatic ejection, a MATCH penalty also includes a five (5) minute penalty and a ten (10) minute misconduct penalty, which each would have to be served by another player on the team. 42.

Ejection From the Game D. MANDATORY meeting with the Grievance Board and subject to dismissal from the league.
9 43. MAKE-UP GAMES: Either regular season or playoff games. First date of make-up is at the discretion of the commissioner by utilizing the first available date/time to play. Second make-up date will be scheduled by the commissioner. Non-compliance of this second make-up date will result in forfeiture. 44. No type of lighted shoes may be worn during the game. No heelies or any type of shoes with wheels are allowed. 45. SHOOTOUTS: (Regular Se as on) When a game ends in a tie after three periods of play has expired, there will be a SHOOTOUT. Each team will select three (3) players to go one on one with the opposing goaltender. The goalie is not allowed to also be a shooter. Whoever scores the most goals after these three (3) players shoot, will be considered the winner. If the score is still tied, each team will then pick one player at a time to shoot in a sudden death round. If one team scores the other must score or the shootout is over. You cannot use any of the original three players until the rest of your team has had a chance to shoot. EXCEPTION: When one of the teams has fewer players at this particular game than the other team, the team with more players is only required to use as many as the other team before using the same players again. Example: Team A has 10 players, Team B has 9 at a game and a shootout happens. If it is tied after three shooters, Team B will have to use all 6 of their remaining players before a player goes twice and Team A only has to use 6 of its remaining 7 players before a player shoots twice. The next goal that is scored, providing the other team does not score, will be declared the winner. The same rules that are enforced for a penalty shot will apply here. The Home team will have the option of shooting first or last. Each team must use the same goalie that they ended the third period with. If it is necessary to change the goalie after the third period for something such as an injury, then that player will not be allowed to participate in the shootout at all. You are not permitted to change your goalie with less than 5 minutes remaining in the third period. The winner of the shootout will receive a WIN and two (2) points. The loser will receive a shootout loss (S.O.L.) and one (1) point. The goals scored in the shootout WILL NOT count towards any individual scoring, goaltending or team stats. SHOOTOUTS: (Playof fs) When a p l a y o f f game ends in a tie after three periods of play has expired, there will be a shootout using the format above. If it is a Semi-Final Round game, there will be a 5 Minute period after regulation and then a shootout if necessary. In the Final Round games there will be consecutive 10 Minute periods after regulation until there is a winner.
10 46. TIE-BREAKERS: In the event that at the end of the season two or more teams are tied in POINTS in the standings the following tie-breakers will be used to determine who finishes ahead of the other. Most Wins - Of the teams that are tied in points, the team with the most wins for entire season, would win this first tie-breaker. If the teams are tied in points and wins then see #2. Head to Head Results - The team with the most POINTS in head to head play against the team(s) they are tied with in Points and Wins would win this tiebreaker. If there are teams that are still tied after this then see #3. LOWEST GOALS AGAINST - Of the teams tied in points, wins and head to head results, the team with the lowest goals against total as a team would win this tiebreaker. One (1) Game Playoff - The tied teams would face each other in a one game, winner take all, tie-breaker game. This game would be played just as a playoff game, with a winner having to be declared. 47. WEATHER Official Temperatures and conditions will be taken from our certified/official weather station located at the rink. Official results are also available from the weather station on our website All games will be played weather permitting. The determination of this is to be by the commissioner and or league official on that day. It will be the responsibility of this person to contact each coach at least 1 hour prior to the scheduled game time if there is going to be a cancellation. Coaches, parents and anyone else not a league official will not be involved in this decision. If you do not receive a call you will be expected to be ready to play at the scheduled game time. Debate over the weather conditions will not be tolerated. Guidelines established by the Board will be followed by the league official making the determination of whether to play or not. It should be pointed out that there may be days when one division cancels games but other divisions do not. NOTE: At any time there is lightning in the immediate area of the hockey rink, the commissioner, coach or referee will remove all players from the rink area. They will either be asked to leave the complex or told to sit inside their respective benches until the lightning has subsided. This applies to regular season games, playoff games and practices.
11 48. CHALLENGE RULE- If during the course of a game a coach feels the referee has made a mistake on a ruling they may at that time ask for a review of the rule in question. This must take place at the time of this occurrence. The coach must in a respectful manner advise the referee he is challenging that call. At that time the ref will refer to our rules and determine if indeed a mistake occurred. PLEASE NOTE: You cannot challenge a judgment call made by the referee only if in fact a rule was not followed correctly. (i.e. you cannot protest a tripping call as that is a judgment call by the ref). All challenges must be lodged at the time the call in question occurs. After that time or after the game it is too late to challenge and no action can be taken to change the call. As long as the coach asks in a respectful manner and the challenge concerns the content of a rule, the referee along with the commissioner or league official present will review the rules. After this review, their ruling will be final and if necessary a change will be made or the call will stand. PENALTY - If you challenge a rule and you do not win the challenge, you will lose your timeout. If you have already used or do not have a timeout, you will then be assessed a one minute minor penalty for delay of game. 49. Any rules not covered in these rules will be covered under the DEK HOCKEY RULEBOOK.
