League clarifies deadlines, penalties surrounding Dec. 1 roster cutoff

League clarifies deadlines, penalties surrounding Dec. 1 roster cutoff
Thursday, November 29, 2012 – Submitted by BCHL Media
 With the Hockey Canada roster deadline on Saturday Dec. 1 potentially leading to a number of player transactions, the British Columbia Hockey League is clarifying its policy on trade reporting at deadline time.
For any transaction made after 11:59 p.m. PST on Friday, Nov. 30, BCHL team personnel are required to wait until 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2 to release details. Only after that time are they permitted to discuss transactions with media.
The absolute Dec. 1 deadline for transactions between separate leagues (i.e. BCHL to AJHL), is 6 p.m. Pacific. For moves made within the BCHL, the absolute deadline is 8 p.m. Pacific.
Teams not in compliance with this league regulation are subject to a fine.
Trade information will be also be posted on the BCHL website at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2.
The Dec. 1 deadline reduces the number of player cards available to all Canadian Junior A hockey clubs to 25. As BCHL active rosters are capped at 22 players, each team would have a maximum of three cards to use to sign new players for the rest of the season.
