HBHL adheres to the rules of the CBHA with the exception of the following:
All stick infractions (high sticking, slashing, etc) are 4 minute penalties in accordance with HBHL rules. 3 stick infractions in one game leads to ejection from game.
Any actions in this manner will result in a minimum 10 minute unsportsmanlike misconduct penalty, with additional penalties at the discretion of referee. Repeat offenders will be subject to additional discipline.
The center line will not exist for two line passes and offsides, which will promote long passes and more scoring chances.
This method of offside is exclusive to ball hockey. The attacking team on offense uses the blue line the same as in ice hockey until they enter the offensive zone. Once this is accomplished the center line acts as the blue line and the defensive team must clear the ball past the center line before it is considered out of the zone.
These will not be tolerated by the league, all will be subject for review by league and it’s referee’s and will be subject to board review.
This will be implemented to speed up game and eliminate possible injuries.
This is also implemented to speed up game and eliminate time wasting in crucial areas of game.
Mercy Rule may be in effect:
The game stops if at any time in second half there is a 7 goal spread.(guaranteed in playoff and tournament play)
