Administration - Bulletin Details
ISSUE #:      2016-041
September 9, 2016
TO: BC Hockey Membership

FROM: Barry Petrachenko
Chief Executive Officer

COPY:Board of Directors
SUBJECT: 2016-2017 Replacement Goaltenders (Hockey Canada Regulation B-44)

Please note the following clarification as to the intent of these Regulations and to the procedures that will be used by BC Hockey relative to them.

The rationale for these Regulations is to ensure that no team finds itself in a situation  where there is no goaltender available to their team.   Prior to relief being granted under this Regulation, it is expected that teams will avail themselves of their Hockey Canada Registered goaltenders and affiliate team’s registered goaltenders.  Should the team then find itself without a goaltender, it may apply to BC Hockey for relief under these Regulations.

The signing officers of a team may submit a written letter of request to:

a) In the case of Senior and Junior (Female and Male), the appropriate Division Coordinator.

b) In the case of Midget AAA, the Male and Female Midget AAA Coordinator.

c) In the case of Minor, the Operations Task Group member in the District for which the team participates in.

d) In the case of a Minor team which participates in a District where there is no Task Group member, the Minor Operations Coordinator.

Such a request must include:

a) The circumstances that led to the need for relief.

b) The name of the Replacement Goaltender they propose to use.

c) Written permission from said goaltender’s registered team.

If permission is granted for the Replacement Goaltender, it shall include an understanding that the Replacement Goaltender will act under such terms and conditions as determined by the Division Coordinator or Branch Minor Hockey Operations Coordinator; unless the Starting Goaltender becomes injured. This permission will have a timed duration.

BC Hockey is a non-profit organization and member of Hockey Canada, providing stewardship of amateur hockey at all levels in British Columbia and Yukon.

Approximately 150 minor hockey associations, 55,000 players, 4,500 referees, 20,000 official volunteers and countless others make our great game possible here in Pacific Canada.
