League Rules

Three 12-minute stop periods with 1 minute intermissions. Each team has 1 timeout that will last 1 minute.

Playing of the Third Period: The clock will go to run-time when there is a 6 goal margin. At the first stoppage of play when the hour/curfew clock shows five minutes of play remaining, the game clock will be reset to two (2) minutes of stop time at the referees direction, and the game shall be concluded. The hour/curfew clock starts when the Zamboni doors close after resurfacing the ice.

Overtime/Shootout Rules: There are no tie games in any of the KCIC Adult Hockey Leagues.  In the event the third period ends with the score still tied, the game will move to a 3-minute, sudden death overtime, played with a numerical on-ice strength of 4-on-4 (plus the goalies).  If neither team scores in overtime, there will be a 3-man Shootout.  If there remains a tie after the three shooters have gone, the game will move to single sudden death rounds until a winner is determined.  Teams that win overtime or shootout games will receive a normal win (worth two points), while teams that lose in overtime or a shootout will receive an overtime or shootout loss (worth one point).  Note that during the overtime period, if penalties are called, teams will play 4-on-3 or if necessary 5-on-3.  At no time can a team play with less than 3 skaters, plus the goalie.  If a team chooses to pull its goalie during overtime and the opposing team scores while the goaltender is off the ice, the team whose goalie was pulled shall forfeit the point they would otherwise get for an overtime loss, with the exception that if the goaltender leaves the ice during a delayed penalty and during the delayed penalty that team inadvertently scores into its own goal, they shall still receive the point for the overtime loss.

Penalties Near the End of the Game: Five and 10 minute penalties in the last 5 minutes of a game that do not incur a suspension will be served by the player at the start of the next game with no on-ice penalty to the player's team. Two minute penalties occurring after the game will be served in the same manner. Failure to attend the next game will count as the player penalty being served.

Substitution Rule: A skater may be subbed when a team has less than 9 skaters and may only substitute up to 10. Subs must be of an equal or lower level than the league they are playing. The commissioner and opposing team captain must be informed as soon as possible to obtain and use a sub.  The sub must be a registered player in the league in order to play.  No outside subs are allowed.  In addition, subs must be approved by the opposing team captain.  The use of unregistered or unapproved subs will result in a game forfeit by the offending team and possible suspension of the offending player and/or team captain.  The same rule will apply to the playoffs. Goalies are a case-by-case basis.

Age: To participate in any KCIC adult league, a player must have a current USA Hockey membership, agreed to abide by the rules and signed a league waiver sheet, in addition to paying the posted players fee. All players must be 18 years of age or older to be on a team roster or fill in as a sub player.
