ICE TIME

 

NLSA House League Hockey strives to provide all players with Fair Ice-Time throughout an entire game regardless of skill levels.  Injuries and penalties are an obvious exception to this rule; also, changing "on the fly" with younger inexperienced players can occasionally lead inadvertently to unfair ice-times.  Coaches must try to rectify any accidental inequalities.  Coaches, however, may use a "Power Play" during the game which is the only other exception to this rule.  The following table should be adhered to as ice-time for all players.  If a team wishes to use two goalies they are to be given Fair Ice-Time and the balance of the team will follow these guidelines for the balance of the players:

 

  9        Players            1 Goalie           5 Forwards                  3 Defense;

10        Players            1 Goalie           2 Forward Lines          3 Defense;

11        Players            1 Goalie           2 Forward Lines          2 Defensive Lines;

12        Players            1 Goalie           2 Forward Lines          5 Defense; OR

12        Players            1 Goalie           7 Forwards                  4 Defense;

13        Players            1 Goalie           7 Forwards                  5 Defense; OR

13        Players            1 Goalie           8 Forwards                  4 Defense;

14        Players            1 Goalie           3 Forward Lines          2 Defensive Lines;

15        Players            1 Goalie           3 Forward Lines          5 Defense;

16        Players            1 Goalie           3 Forward Lines          3 Defensive Lines;

17        Players            1 Goalie           3 Forward Lines          7 Defense.

 

Pulling the Goalie for an extra player out can take place anytime during the game.

 

Double-shifting is prohibited.  The only exception is the Power Play described above.  Coaches who disregard this rule will, in the first instance, receive a division Convenor's warning.  In the case of subsequent infractions, however, the game will be played to its conclusion so as not to punish the entire team.  Coaches may be further disciplined and/or suspended at the discretion of the Division Convenors for breach of these "Fair Ice-Time" rules and guidelines.  Exceptions to this rule require the explicit permission of the division Convenor.
