ISSUE #:      2013-22-I
October 12, 2013
TO: BC Hockey Membership
FROM: Barry Petrachenko
Executive Director

SUBJECT: Resolutions Update – Hockey Canada Regulation E 35a

Please note the following adjustment to Hockey Canada Regulation E35a. This change is in effect for the current season and adjusts the limitations on the number of games an affiliated player is eligible to participate in.
The updated regulation (with wording changes in bold type) is as follows:
2013-2014 Hockey Canada Regulation E35a
35. a) A player of a team of a lower Division or category of the same club, or of an affliated team, or a specially affliated player, may affliate to a team or teams of higher Divisions and categories at any time, to a maximum of ten (10) games.  However, if the player's registered team completes its regular season and playoffs before the player's affliated team or teams, the player may thereafter affliate an unlimited number of times.  For goaltender exceptions see Regulations B.42, E.36 (b).
In summary, the following changes are now in effect:
  • The five game limit after January 10 no longer applies. 
  • Affiliation guidelines are now consistent at minor, junior and senior hockey. 
  • Affiliate players are now limited to ten (10) games maximum over the course of a season. The purpose of this limitation is to prevent the use of "permanent affiliates"
  • Affiliate players may not play an eleventh game until their carded team has completed their season. 
  • An affiliate player who does participate in more than ten games will be deemed to be an ineligible player. 
Please ensure that all teams in your organization are aware of these adjustments. If you require further information regarding this notice please contact your District Director or the BC Hockey office.
