SUBJECT: Online Game Incident Reporting System - MINOR
Please be advised that BC Hockey has launched the new online game incident reporting system effective immediately for the 2016-2017 season. Officials are now required to submit all game incident reports online through their Hockey Canada eHockey account as outlined below; written reports will no longer be accepted.
Online Game Incident Report Procedure
1. Following games that require a game incident report, officials MUST do one (1) of the following:
a. Take a legible photo of the game sheet(s) with a smartphone / tablet
b. Obtain a legible 3rd or 4th generation copy of the game sheet(s) as a reference for the purpose of completing an online report.
2. All game incidents requiring reports MUST be submitted via the online game incident reporting system via the official’s Hockey Canada eHockey account no later than 8:00am (PST) on the morning following the game. Ehockey.hockeycanada.ca
3. Once the incident report has been submitted online, the procedure is complete.
4. Please find links to the online Game Incident Report video tutorial and manual below. Should you have any questions please contact BC Hockey at email@example.com or 250.652.2978
OMAHA Regulation 3000 b. requires that the last 10 minutes of all OMAHA Leagues must be played stop time.
Therefore, if you have a game that is not going to be finished in time (ie 1st period took 1/2 of allotted time, then it is the responsibility of the on-ice officials to adjust the playing time (ie Run the 2nd period & maybe 1st half of 3rd) to ensure that the last 10 mins of the game is STOP time.
If a game is played with running time in the last 10 mins of the 3rd, then the game can be protested and the teams will have to re-play that game and a lot of Administration and Travel Time/Costs are added.
