Playoff Rules

Government issued photo ID must be shown to TK during warm up for each playoff game
If a player does not have Photo ID they will not be permitted to play.

All players require 1/3 of the teams originally scheduled games to qualify for playoffs. We do not make any exceptions on minimum games required for playoffs. All goalies require 1/3 of the teams originally scheduled games in goal to play in playoffs. Goalies with less than 5 games played must follow the spare goalie process below.

A player with a combination of games between goal and player is permitted to play out however, if you require this player to play in net and the player does not have 5 games playing in goal you must follow the spare goalie request below.

Spare goalie process for playoffs:

If a team requires a spare goalie they must give a MINIMUM of 24 hours notice. Teams are to email stats@nchl.com with all of the teams the spare goalie plays on, any other leagues the spare goalie plays in, and all stats from all team pages for the teams they play on.

Spare goalies must play in the NCHL current S2018 season and play in the same division or lower to be considered an acceptable spare goalie. Goalies playing in divisions higher than the team division will not be approved as a spare goalie. Goalies not currently playing in the NCHL in the Summer 2018 season will not be approved for playoffs.

Goalies are only reviewed on a per game basis, if a goalie is approved for one game that does not make them automatically approved for a second. They must send a request in for each game they require a spare goalie.

We do understand that there are last minute fill ins required in some instances. If a team is not able to follow the spare goalie process above due to a last minute cancelation they are still required to submit all of the above info BEFORE the goalie plays their game.  

A review will be completed ASAP after the game and if the goalie is determined to be above the level of the division they are playing in the team will forfeit after the game is played and their opponent will continue on.

Anytime a spare goalie is approved for playoffs no goalie listed on the regular season team goalie roster is able to play out and the team will forfeit for playing an illegal player if they do so.

No jersey infractions are allowed in playoffs

Every team is required to have matching jerseys in playoffs. Players that are not in an acceptable team jersey based on the NCHL jersey rules will not be permitted to play.  http://www.nchl.com/uploads/rules/NCHL-Rules-Summer2018.pdf
