NSYHL RULES, REGULATIONS & POLICIES

Rosters

Organizations with multiple teams per age level must select and form teams in a balanced format. With the exception of goaltenders, no player may be rostered and play on more than one team in the same age level. A team in an upper age level may roster players from a lower age level.

 

Games

If the game slot is a one-hour slot then the game shall consist of a 3-minute pre-game warm-up, 11-minute periods, 1:30 minor penalties and 4:00 major penalties, 8:00 misconduct penalties. If the game slot is longer than one hour the game can consist of longer periods but the visiting team has to be agreeable to this before the game.

 

Shootouts

If regulation time ends with the teams tied then the game shall immediately go into a 3-round shootout. Home team chooses to shoot first or last. If the 3-round shootout ends in a tie then the game ends in a tie. NHL Shootout Rules Apply, except for no player who is in the penalty box at the end of regulation time may participate in the shootout.

 

Mercy Rule

If the score differential is +5 or more in the third period then the clock shall go to running time. If the score differential falls back to four goals then the clock goes back to stop time.

 

Timeouts

Each team will be allowed one 30-second timeout.

 

Standings

Regulation Time or Shootout Win = 2 Points; Shootout Loss = 1 Point; Regulation Time Loss = 0 Points
