Gretsky rule applies - social only player can score a maximum of 3 goals per game. Assists are unlimited

For players who also play in QHL they can only score one goal per game.

For players who also play in Jurassic they can only score two goals per game.

Please use your own integrity when it comes to goal scoring, if you've scored your limit of goals be honest.

No slap shots above the waist.

In general. Don't Be a Dick on the Ice and GS's ONLY apply. Social league is designed to be competitive but FUN.

Ring Ins/Fill ins. Players who are not on your roster may be used, provided the opposition team are comfortable with them playing. Please check with the opposing captain before the game and sign off with the score box before puck drop.

Due to demand for player sports in Social League you can only play for one team.

To be eligible for the play offs, a player must have played a minimum of 4 games during the regular season and have paid their QIHC membership fee.

NEW Suspensions = if a player gets ejected from the game for serious misconduct e.g. fighting or dangerous play he or she will earn a suspension. They may be stood down for 1-2games depending on the result of an investigation into the incident.
