If team "A" makes the decision to provide team "B" with substitute players, the substitute players will be listed on the score sheet as substitute players for team "B" and the player stats for the substitute players will count towards team "B". However, if any of the substitute players are assessed penalties that result in suspensions, the suspensions for the substitute players will be served under team "A" their regular team, and not team "B" the team that the substitute players only substituted for.

Government Issued Photo Identification Requirement
All players, skaters and goalies, are required to bring government issued photo identification to every playoff game in order to confirm if a player is eligible or not. If a player is unable to present his or her government issued photo identification when requested by an on or off ice official for government issued photo identification, then that player will no longer be permitted to participate in that playoff game. If the player refuses to comply, even with a warning, and continues to play without presenting his or her government issued photo identification, then unless that player stops playing, that player's team will automatically default and their opponent will be awarded the victory. Reasons such as, however not limited to: forgot to bring government issued photo identification, did not drive to the game, left government issued photo identification at home or in the car or in the dressing room, will not be accepted.
 
However, a player may appeal to the on or off ice officials and if at least one of the on or off ice officials knows or recognizes the player, who does not have government issued photo identification, as a regular skater who has played in at least a minimum total of ten (10) or a goalie who has played in at least a minimum total of five (5) or more of his or her team's regular season games then that player will be permitted to play.

If that player refuses to comply, even with a warning, and continues to play, then unless that player stops playing, that player's team will automatically default and their opponent will be awarded the victory.
 
Goalie Unavailability

In the event that a team does not have any of their eligible goalies who have played in at least a minimum of five (5) or more of his or her team's regular season games available to play in a specific playoff game(s), the team may apply for permission from the CAHL - Calgary Adult Hockey League for an emergency goalie(s) to play in that specific playoff game(s). Each case and application will be reviewed and permission may or may not be granted for any reason with or without explanation, at the CAHL - Calgary Adult Hockey League's sole discretion, for any emergency goalie(s) or specific playoff game(s). Emergency goalies are still required to bring government issued photo identification to every playoff game in order to confirm if the goalie is eligible or not as per our Government Issued Photo Identification Requirement section rules above.

 

Emergency goalie permission must be requested at least 12 hours in advance of the playoff game in order for any chance of emergency goalie permission to be possibly granted.

Emergency goalie permission will not be granted under any circumstances at/during/near the start of the playoff game.

If a team brings an ineligible goalie to a playoff game (who hasn't been given permission in advance to be an emergency goalie for that playoff game) with less than the minimum 5 games played then the ineligible goalie automatically will not be given emergency goalie permission under any circumstances to play in that playoff game. The team will either have to dress one of their eligible skaters in that ineligible goalie's equipment to play goalie or forfeit and lose that playoff game. Again, the ineligible goalie will not be given emergency goalie permission to play in that playoff game under any circumstances. Reasons such as, however not limited to: forgot the current playoff eligibility/goalie unavailability rules, didn't check the current playoff eligibility/goalie unavailability rules, forgot to ask for emergency goalie permission in advance, didn't have time to ask for emergency goalie permission in advance, will not be accepted.

Skaters who did not play in at least a minimum total of five (5) or more of his or her team's regular season games and goalies who did not play in at least a minimum total of three (3) or more of his or her team's regular season games are not permitted to play in the playoffs (please see below under Goalie Unavailability section rules for possible application and permission for emergency goalies).

Government Issued Photo Identification Requirement
All players, skaters and goalies, are required to bring government issued photo identification to every playoff game in order to confirm if a player is eligible or not. If a player is unable to present his or her government issued photo identification when requested by an on or off ice official for government issued photo identification, then that player will no longer be permitted to participate in that playoff game. If the player refuses to comply, even with a warning, and continues to play without presenting his or her government issued photo identification, then unless that player stops playing, that player's team will automatically default and their opponent will be awarded the victory. Reasons such as, however not limited to: forgot to bring government issued photo identification, did not drive to the game, left government issued photo identification at home or in the car or in the dressing room, will not be accepted.

However, a player may appeal to the on or off ice officials and if at least one of the on or off ice officials knows or recognizes the player, who does not have government issued photo identification, as a regular skater who has played in at least a minimum total of five (5) or a goalie who has played in at least a minimum total of three (3) or more of his or her team's regular season games then that player will be permitted to play. If none of the on or off ice officials know or recognize the player, who does not have government issued photo identification, as a regular skater who has played in at least a minimum total of five (5) or a goalie who has played in at least a minimum total of three (3) or more of his or her team's regular season games, then that player's appeal will be rejected and that player will not be permitted to participate in that playoff game. If that player refuses to comply, even with a warning, and continues to play, then unless that player stops playing, that player's team will automatically default and their opponent will be awarded the victory.

Goalie Unavailability
In the event that a team does not have any of their eligible goalies who have played in at least a minimum of three (3) or more of his or her team's regular season games available to play in a specific playoff game(s), the team may apply for permission from the CAHL - Calgary Adult Hockey League for an emergency goalie(s) to play in that specific playoff game(s). Each case and application will be reviewed and permission may or may not be granted for any reason with or without explanation, at the CAHL - Calgary Adult Hockey League's sole discretion, for any emergency goalie(s) or specific playoff game(s). Emergency goalies are still required to bring government issued photo identification to every playoff game in order to confirm if the goalie is eligible or not as per our Government Issued Photo Identification Requirement section rules above.
 

Emergency goalie permission must be requested at least 12 hours in advance of the playoff game in order for any chance of emergency goalie permission to be possibly granted.


Emergency goalie permission will not be granted under any circumstances at/during/near the start of the playoff game.

If a team brings an ineligible goalie to a playoff game (who hasn't been given permission in advance to be an emergency goalie for that playoff game) with less than the minimum 3 games played then the ineligible goalie automatically will not be given emergency goalie permission under any circumstances to play in that playoff game. The team will either have to dress one of their eligible skaters in that ineligible goalie's equipment to play goalie or forfeit and lose that playoff game. Again, the ineligible goalie will not be given emergency goalie permission to play in that playoff game under any circumstances. Reasons such as, however not limited to: forgot the current playoff eligibility/goalie unavailability rules, didn't check the current playoff eligibility/goalie unavailability rules, forgot to ask for emergency goalie permission in advance, didn't have time to ask for emergency goalie permission in advance, will not be accepted.
