LC Valley Hockey Tournaments Rules and Regulations
All teams/participants must be registered and in good standing with USA Hockey. Credentials will be checked.
USA Hockey Rosters are required prior to the tournament. A documentation check may be held prior to games. Teams should bring players’ birth certificates and medical release forms to the tournament. All rosters are frozen at the completion of the team’s first game.
All games are governed by USA Hockey rules and regulations and officiated by USA Hockey certified referees.
Games will consist of three 17-minute running clock periods. There will be a 5 minute warm up and 2 minutes between periods. The last 3 minutes of the 3rd period will be stop clock if the goal differential is 1 or less. Ice will not be resurfaced between periods. No player will be allowed more than 3 goals in one game.
Teams will be awarded 2 points for a win and 1 point for a tie. The round robin portion of the tournament will not have tie-breakers (shoot outs or overtime). In the event that teams are tied in the scoring system at the end of the round robin portion, the tie-breaking criteria will be based on following in this order: 1 - Head to head (if more than 2 teams tied, go to 2), 2 – Least total goals scored against, 3 – Team with the least amount of penalty minutes served, 4 – Goal differential and then finally 5 - Coin toss.
All teams will participate in a play-off game based on their point total.
Play-off games that end in a tie will be decided with a 5-man shoot out. If still tied then there will be a 1-man shoot out using players that were not part of the 5 man shoot out group until there is a winner.
If the Championship game is tied at the end of 3 periods, there will be one 5 minute sudden death period. If still tied, then the game will be decided with a 5 man shoot out. If still tied then there will be a 1 man shoot out using players that were not part of the 5 man shoot out group until there is a winner.
No protests allowed on officials’ judgment calls. Only infractions of USA Hockey rules and tournament rules will be heard. Protests must be filed with the tournament director within 15 minutes of the conclusion of the game. A judgment will be rendered within 90 minutes of receipt of the protest.
