KCIC Adult Hockey Game Schedule Update

KCIC Summer Adult Hockey League Starts June 9th

Note: - all KCIC adult hockey players must have a current USA Hockey membership and that number needs to be submitted to the league. Team rosters will be posted on the website. All players must have a photo ID to participate in KCIC adult league hockey games.

Sub player policy - regarding using a registered KCIC hockey player as a substitute in your game, it's required to notify the opposing captain and get his OK on the use of any sub players. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit for the offending team. (Players not registered on a KCIC team cannot be used as a sub).

Former professional players can only play in our A/B league. The exemption to this rule is if the player is 45 years of age or older. These players are allowed to play in our 45+ league. Note the definition of a former professional player refers to a player who signed a contract and received compensation for his services. 

Effective Immediately - players are not allowed to walk through the rink lobby unless they are completely dressed. Players in towels or shorts (with no shirt on), we face game suspensions and or league expulsion.

KCIC Adult Hockey League General Information

KCIC offers several different leagues, based on a players skill level.

A/B League - skaters in this league played at a high level growing up. It includes former college players. Typically these games are played during the week.

Campbell Conference - skaters in this league could play B or High C. This league will skate primarily on Sunday's - with games on other days of the week.

Bob Klem League - skaters in this league played travel hockey and high school. There's a wide range of skill level in our largest league. The Gold division is for the top players, while Silver is the middle tier and Bronze is the third level. This league plays games primarily on Sunday's.

D League - skaters in this league are fairly new to the sport and are still learning the game. This league plays primarily during the week, primarily on Monday's.

Z League - skaters in this league are brand new and have recently started playing the game. This league plays mostly on Thursday nights.

45+ League - skaters in this league are high skill level and have played college hockey. This league plays during the week, primarily on Tuesday's.

50+ League - skaters in this league are veterans who have been playing the game since they were kids. Competition is fairly even and is age based. This league plays primarily on Sunday's.

Note - new player are always welcome! Our mission statement is pretty basic - find teams for players who want to play.

Similar to the NFL, parity is important for our adult leagues at KCIC.

Each year, most of the players (in all of our leagues) continue to improve. More ice time equals better skills. This presents a challenge for our league directors, who are kind of like the teams general manager. It's easy to spot the best players on the ice in any league. 

In order to maintain the competitive balance, a team or teams, could be switched out of the division they are in - to a higher league.

Non Medical Items That Chet Uses Everyday

Chet Neumann Update

Last week, Mike Thomas and I visited Chet Neumann and delivered our leagues $6,000 cash donation to him and his wife, Gudrun.

Chet is doing remarkably well, all things considered. His attitude and cheerful demeanor are just amazing. And his wife (who's also his main care giver), is wonderful. Fate dealt them a serious blow and they have responded to this situation as well as is humanly possible.

I can't say the same for USA Hockey's insurance carrier (K&K). They determined that the injuries Chet sustained (during a league sanctioned KCIC hockey game), were not considered "catastrophic" - and therefore he didn't qualify for that type of payout. Apparently being paralyzed from the neck down - isn't the kind of injury they cover!

The total amount of monies paid to them by the USA Hockey insurance carrier was $8,000. 

Medicare covered the bulk of his $1 million dollars of medical costs and care. But there are a number of things that aren't covered, including gloves, and many non-medical supplies that he needs on a daily basis.

So we are still looking for ways to help support the family - any way we can. If anybody has any thoughts on this please give me a call!

Wednesday November 22nd, 2017 

Effective December 1st, 2017 all KCIC adult hockey players must have a photo ID (government issued) on file with the rink. If a player cannot produce this ID (or chooses not to) that player or players will not be allowed to participate in KCIC league games.

No exceptions.

Tom Prendergast - Commissioner

New rule Photo ID: Every player who participates in the KCIC Adult Hockey League must provide a valid (government issued) photo ID. No exceptions. In the event a team requests a verification check of a player on the opposing team, the player in question must provide a photo ID as soon as the game is over and it must match, the photo ID on record. The on ice officials will conduct the ID check. If the player in question cannot provide a photo ID upon request, that player has a 24 hour window in which to submit this ID to the league commissioner. The clock starts with the end of the scheduled game time. For example - if the game started at 3:10pm on Sunday, the player has until 4:10pm on Monday to produce his photo ID. Failure to comply will result in a 1-0 loss for his team.

Note: It is the teams responsibility to make sure that all of their players are in compliance with this rule. This is not the league or the rink's responsibility. This is strictly up to team captain and players.

The Men's League Schedules  are under the appropriate league sections on the "Current Section" navigator box to the left.


League Rules

Three 12-minute stop periods with 1 minute intermissions. Each team has 1 timeout that will last 1 minute. Note: Playoff and Championship game times will vary and are subject to ice rink availability.

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 5-minute, sudden death overtime, played with a numerical on-ice strength of 3-on-3 (plus the goalies).  If neither team scores in overtime, there will be a 5-man Shootout.  The home team will choose to shoot first or second.  If there remains a tie after the five shooters have gone, the game will move to single sudden death rounds until a winner is determined.  A team may not reuse a shooter in the shootout until all players on the team have shot, with the exception that if the opposing team has fewer players playing in that game, teams may reuse shooters once all shooters on the team with the fewer players have shot.  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).  If during overtime 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 or overtime 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.  

Ejected players:  When a player in any of our leagues receive a major or misconduct penalty (resulting in a game suspension), that player will be subject to additional game suspension(s), which may be assessed by the league commissioner.  

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.

Uniform Requirements: A team must have matching jerseys with numbers to participate in the KCIC Adult Hockey League (USA Hockey).

Note - Z league substitution requirement: only the League Commissioner may approve a sub player for any regular season or playoff game.

Age:  To participate in any KCIC adult league, a player must be registered with the league and 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.

Photo ID:  Every player who participates in the KCIC Adult Hockey League must provide a valid (government issued) photo ID. No exceptions. In the event a team requests a verification check of a player on the opposing team, the player in question must provide a photo ID as soon as the game is over and it must match, the photo ID on record. The on ice officials will conduct the ID check. If the player in question cannot provide a photo ID upon request, that player has a 24 hour window in which to submit this ID to the league commissioner. The clock starts with the end of the scheduled game time. For example - if the game started at 3:10pm on Sunday, the player has until 4:10pm on Monday to produce his photo ID. Failure to comply will result in a 1-0 loss for his team.

Note: It is the team's responsibility to make sure that all of their players are in compliance with this rule. This is not the league or the rink's responsibility. This is strictly up to team captain and players.

Roster:  All players who participate in KCIC adult hockey games must be on a roster. Only players who have registered through the league website (and have paid their fees) are eligible to participate. Registered players may play on multiple teams (but cannot play for two teams in the same division). For example; a player can play for 3 teams (providing they pay a league fee for each team they are rostered on) - A - B - C. 

Subs player regulations - sub players can only play for a team twice in any one season.

Forfeits:  If a team forfeits, they lose the game by the score of 3-0. In addition, their opponent gets the option to play their next game (as a penalty for not getting to play a game) or any other game on their schedule. If a team forfeits two games during the season, that team will not be allowed to participate in the playoffs.

In addition - the league reserves the right to suspend or remove a team from the schedule if the team is not conducting themselves in accordance with league rules.
