Breakfast Television Hockey Classic - Special Rules

The HOME team will be the top team in each draw.

The Home team will supply the timekeeper and the Visiting team will supply the scorekeeper (please bring a game sheet). Please ensure there is a volunteer in the box to help with the opening/closing the penalty box doors (it can be from either team). Time and Scorekeepers should position themselves in the time box at least five minutes before the scheduled start of the game to familiarize themselves with the equipment and rules posted.

HOME TEAM (win or lose) must enter the score sheet online through the Hockey Calgary website – same as Esso Minor Hockey Week

All games must start on time with the following game format being observed:

GAME FORMAT- 12, 15 & 15 minute stop time periods

GAME LENGTH - 1 hour permit

NOTE: There will be a three (3) minute warm up before each game

NO GAME WILL EXCEED THE PERMIT TIME.  If undue delays occur for any reason and the game cannot be completed within the permit time, the following procedure must be followed:

At the first stoppage of play when time reaches five (5) minutes left on the permit, the timekeeper will notify the referee

At this stoppage in play the clock will be reset to two (2) minutes and the remainder of the game completed with stop time

Tie Breaking Procedures - Shootout

Please ensure that the timekeeper knows it is their responsibility to place a check beside each shooter as they shoot during the shootout.  No player may shoot twice until every shooter that is eligible has shot.

All tournament games, if after 60 minutes (or regulation time) the game remains tied, the teams will proceed to a shootout. The rules governing the actual shot will be the same as Hockey Canada’s Official Rules 2013– 2014 Rule 4.9 Penalty Shot.

The shootout procedure shall be as follows:
1. The ice will not be re-surfaced prior to the shootout.

2. The Teams will not change ends for the shootout.

3. The Home Team has the option to shoot either first or second.

4. The teams shall alternate shots.

5. Three (3) players from each team shall participate in the shootout and they shall proceed in such order as the Coach selects. All players are eligible to participate in the shootout unless they are serving a ten minute misconduct or have been assessed a game misconduct, gross misconduct or match penalty.
6. The goaltender may be changed before the start of the shootout should the coach decide to do so. However, once the shootout begins, the goalkeeper cannot be replaced unless he/she is injured. If the Goaltender has to be replaced due to injury no warm up shall be permitted for a substitute goalkeeper.
7. Each team will be given three shots, unless the outcome is determined earlier in the shootout. After each team has taken three shots, if the score remains tied, the shootout will proceed to a "sudden victory" format.

8. Sudden victory is achieved by each team sending one additional shooter, should one team score and the other not a winner will be declared. If both shooter’s score or both shooter’s miss then each team will send another shooter to participate until one team has scored and one has not.

9. No player may shoot twice until everyone who is eligible has shot.
10. Regardless of the number of goals scored during the shootout portion of overtime, the final score recorded for the game will give the winning team one more goal than its opponent, based on the score at the end of overtime.

11. If a team declines to participate in the shootout procedure the game will be declared as a shootout loss for that team.

12. If a team declines to take a shot it will be declared as "no goal".
