New Rules for 2018-19

New Rules for 2018-19

Rules Committee Recommends Abolishing Shootouts in League Play, but Still Needs Final NCAA Approval.

And I like the USCHO headline better.

NCAA approves standardized overtime format for regular-season games, in-season tournaments for ’18-19 season.

From USCHO:

When a game remains tied after regulation time, teams will play five-on-five for five minutes to determine a winner. If neither team scores, the result will be a tie. No other options, including alternative formats for points in conference standings, will be permitted.

During regular-season tournaments that require advancement, two options will be available after the five-minute overtime is played. Events may choose to utilize a shootout, using the specified rules, or conduct 20-minute sudden-death periods. Postseason competition options include 20-minute sudden death periods or the minigame format (utilized in some conference championships).

One significant change is to allow the use of video review in situations where ejecting a player is being considered.

“When video replay is available, it is important to be sure student-athletes are penalized appropriately,” Bertagna said. “Given the speed of the game, providing this tool will help ensure proper enforcement.”

Other significant rule changes:

— The committee redefined slashing to encourage better enforcement and specifically identified this as an illegal defensive tactic.

— For a substitution to be legal, the player coming off the ice must be within 5 feet of their bench before the substitute may contact the ice.

— In overtime games, each team will have one timeout to utilize in overtime, regardless of whether a timeout was used during regulation play.

— The number of skaters allowed to each team will be increased to 19 (current rule allows up to 18).

— A player who catches the puck must immediately place it on the ice for play to continue legally. If a player catches and conceals or throws the puck, a minor penalty shall be assessed.

–To reduce the number of video review situations, coaches must use a challenge to review goals scored where a potential high stick is involved or plays where the puck touches the netting out of play and leads to a goal.

I love it! I never would've predicted the college game would reverse course from moving toward the pro format, but I am wholeheartedly in favor of this change.

— The number of skaters allowed to each team will be increased to 19 (current rule allows up to 18).

I know this isn't what they meant, but I just took a few seconds to envision a game where two teams are playing each other 18-on-18 on an NHL sheet, and one more skater for each side comes on the ice, and it made me giggle.

"We're down a goal late! Better pull the goalie for a twentieth skater!!"

That seems like a big deal to me. One of the consequences of a GM or DQ is how it disturbs all of your lines or pairings. No longer.

Indeed.

I'll assume most teams will dress an extra defenseman. Given how Schafer typically puts together a roster, I see a great advantage here for us, since our scratched defensemen would be playing big minutes on most other teams.

I can see Schafer actively recruiting and coaching "swing men" who can move between F and D with equal facility. The Dan Lodboa Memorial Award, seen most recently with Alex Rauter.

This also takes away some of the heartburn of working young guys into the lineup. Lots more flexibility in putting a guy on the long end of the bench who gets only a couple shifts per period. Or you could even have a soccer striker-like substitution late in the game with a guy who is fresh.

I like it. You can do a lot with it and Mike is creative.

It also makes benching a player who needs to be benched during the game for an extended period of time without tiring other players as much.

Easy to see how teams will use that 19th spot very differently even from game to game. In all, a very creative move by the league.

Will this change how many players can participate in pre-game warmup? Under current rules, 19 skaters can warm up, but only 18 can participate in game.

Hard to see the need for this, as increasing (almost universal) use of media/TV timeouts means less use of bottom of roster, so why is it necessary to dress more players?

Won't be particularly popular among SIDs either, having to squeeze another player into the line charts.

I do not like the roster expansion. I worry it will benefit perrenial powerhouse teams with enough depth, and in turn will hurt a team who is trying to rebuild or for whatever reason has less talent to pull from.

Right, it does let the big powers stockpile. But it also means the player comes in with no scholarship or a fractional.

Adam's take."Whatever, But Nothing Was Wrong With OT Status Quo"

Also, check out the article linked to at the bottom of this article.

Old rules become new.

Shootout Returns; NCAA Modifies OT Proposal

NCAA hockey overtime proposal modified; conferences would now have two options if game tied after first OT

NCAA approves overtime protocols; conferences now allowed to choose format after five-minute, five-on-five overtime period

Other interesting rule updates:

— Allowing the use of video review in situations where ejecting a player is being considered.

— A redefining of slashing. The approved change states: “Any forceful or powerful chop with the stick on an opponent’s body, the opponent’s stick, or on or near the opponent’s hands that, in the judgment of the referee, is not an attempt to play the puck, should be penalized as slashing.”

— For a substitution to be legal, the player coming off the ice must be within 5 feet of the bench before the substitute may contact the ice.

— In overtime games, each team will have one timeout to use in overtime, regardless of whether a timeout was used during regulation play.

— The number of skaters allowed on each team will be increased to 19 (the current rule allows up to 18).

— A player who catches the puck must immediately place it on the ice for play to continue legally. If a player catches and conceals or throws the puck, a minor penalty shall be assessed.

so for the slashing rule.. just how do you slash in any of those spots and still be attempting to play the puck for the most part?
unless the puck is floating 2-3 ft above the ice or the player is laying on the ice?

if the other player shifts their body and it is deemed unintentional is my best guess
