    HHL Rulebook

    RULES FOR THE HAX HOCKEY LEAGUE
             
    Part 1: Rosters

    Rosters in the HHL will generally consist of 8 players. Because Games are 4v4, a Team will need to at least have 4 players on the roster, and no more than 8 players on a roster. The General Manager counts as a member of the roster unless he has elected to be non-playing.

    Part 2:Basic Gameplay

    Goal Limit: None
    Time Limit: 3, 4 minute periods.
    Map:TBD
    Games will be 4v4, this usually includes a Goalie, Defender and two Forwards. Teams may play with any number of players if they are not able to field 4 players. If one team plays shorthanded, the other team is NOT required to play shorthanded. If the game is tied after 3 periods it will go to a sudden death 3v3 overtime. There is no time limit in overtime, the first team to score wins.

    Substitutions

    Substitutions are allowed, but only during play stoppages. A general manager can only make a substitution after a goal or between periods. If the substitution is made after a goal, the general manager must pause the game briefly until the substitution is made.


    Part 4: Teams, Standings,Schedule and playoffs

    The season schedule is in double round robin form, which means every team plays each other twice. The top 2 teams at the end of the season will go to the Haxley Cup Final where it's a best of 3 series for the cup. The Points system goes as follows:

    • 2 Points for a win
    • 1 Point for overtime/shootout loss
    • 0 points for regulation loss.

    If 2 teams are tied for a cup final spot at the end of the season, the tiebreakers are as follows:

    Head to head points
    Head to head goal differential
    Total season wins
    Season goal differential
    Total goals scored
