NCHL Summer Info
Posted By: Admin
Tuesday, March 2, 2021

If you have not heard, we have made the difficult decision that the 2020-21 Winter Season has been cancelled, and your team will be credited for any games that you missed because of the COVID restrictions. You can see the full explanation and find out how to get a team refund here.
But we also have good news! We have officially opened the Summer 2021 Season as well, and we know how badly you want to get back on the ice.
That said, we do not know what government restrictions will be put in place, but we can only assume they will be very similar to what they were before the last shutdown, and will adjust accordingly if things are more restrictive or more lenient. To see more information on the Summer 2021 Season, pricing, and how to sign up, click here.
If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to email us at info [at]

2 Directives Going Forward
Posted By: Referee-In-Chief
Tuesday, November 3, 2020

1) The last player from each Team that leaves the Staging Area onto the ice or off the ice will be responsible for closing their Staging Area Door. Please do not close the Door for them, if the Door is not closed 1 of the players from that Team will close the Door prior to the puck drop etc.

2) Contact with the Goaltender is on the rise again. Anytime an offensive player makes contact with the Goaltender whether it be backing into the Goaltender, skating into the Goaltender, falling into the Goaltender etc the REFs will call minimum of a 2 Minute Minor for Goaltender Interference, be aware that this may be increased to 5 Minute Major+Game Misconduct for Goaltender Interference or Goaltender Charging based on degree of impact or if the Goaltender is injured. Most severe a Match Penalty. 

Further if the defensive player knocks an offensive player into their own Goaltender the REFs will call 4 Mins against the defensive player 2 Mins for 'The Initial Infraction'+2 Mins for Unsportsmanlike Conduct & 2 Mins against the offensive player for Goaltender Interference. The only exception to any of this is if the Goaltender initiates the Contact then no penalty or a penalty against the Goaltender maybe called. If we are going to protect the Goaltender then the Goatenders have no right to make contact either. The REFs will crackdown on protecting the Goaltenders as too many are getting contacted with & resulting in potential altercations & injuries. In 1 game alone, prior to this Directive, we had 3 Goaltender Interference penalties in 1 game.

GM's of each team please inform your players about these 2 Directives.
