Esso Minor Hockey Week Rules

2018 Esso Minor Hockey Week - Special Rules

 

Please note the following rule changes this season:

GAMES WILL END AT THE SCHEDULED TIME REGARLESS OF WHEN THE GAME STARTS. If delays occur for any reason, including a previous game going late, and the game cannot be completed within the scheduled 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.
  • Due to scheduling constraints, some teams may not get their full game time – this is unfortunate but both teams will have an equal opportunity to affect the outcome of the game.

 

OVERTIME FORMAT FOR FINAL GAMES ONLY: If the score is tied at the end of regulation, teams will play three (3) minutes of sudden death overtime. To commence overtime, each team will place four players on the ice (ie: this may be 4 skaters and no goaltender or 3 skaters and a goaltender).  This number will be reduced by one (1) for each player serving the balance of a penalty incurred in regulation. Teams will not change ends for the overtime period, and the time clock will be set for three (3) minutes. OVERTIME PERIOD WILL BE STOP TIME. Teams may change on the fly at any time.
