RULES
 

1 This is a no body contact league for fun and recreation, so aggressive and questionable play will be penalized.
 
2 Games consist of two 30 minute periods. The last 2 minutes are played with stop time if the goal differential is less than 3.
 
3 The centre red line is not used in determining offsides.
 
4 Slap shots (stick is raised above the knee) and fake slap shots are not allowed.
 
5 Contacting, or attempting to contact, the puck with a stick above the shoulders will result in a high sticking penalty. A double minor will be assessed for drawing blood.
 
6 Slew-footing will result in an ejection plus a one game suspension.
 
7 Charging the goaltender in the goal crease will result in a major penalty and game misconduct.
 
8 Escalating suspensions will be assessed for repeat offenders.
 
9 Players will be suspended for conduct detrimental to the league.
 
10 Three penalties in one game will result in an automatic one game suspension.
 
11 Players will be suspended for one game when 30 minutes in penalties have been accumulated during the entire season, and one game for each additional 15 minutes in penalties.
 
12 Players who have been ejected from three games during the entire season will be suspended for 1 game. The fourth ejection results in a 2 game suspension, the fifth ejection results in a 3 game suspension, etc.

15 Fighting, or dropping the gloves, will result in a one year suspension.
 
16 Playing while impaired, or in a manner that would lead to a suspension, will not be allowed and can result in an ejection from the game without the need for a penalty to be assessed.
 
17 Any player who is injured, especially in the case of a head injury, should be assisted to the hospital for proper medical attention.
 
18 Players from the Waiting/Injury Reserve List must play a minimum of 15 games before becoming eligible to be placed on the Injury Reserve List.

25 Tie-breakers for the standings are (a) head to head, including tournament games, (b) goal differential, (c) fewest penalty minutes.
 
26 All other rules will be governed by the OMHA rules.
