Welcome to the 17TH year of London 911 Hockey. I started this league with the hopes of improving and enhancing the camaraderie of all related emergency services in the area, while enjoying Canada's great pass-time.
We are going strong as a 6 team league, and have quite a wide array of emergency service workers playing, including Firefighters, Police Officers, Paramedics, Doctors, and Nurses.
The teams will be randomly picked with an even number from each respective service, to give everyone a chance to get to know those you have been working alongside.
All skill levels are welcome, and the teams will be re-picked at the beginning of each year. Please respect each other, I am pretty sure the chance of cracking the "bigs" is over.
It is your responsibility to arrange for a replacement for any games that you are unable to play. Refer to your back-up list, and notify your team rep. Please try to give as much notice as possible to the replacement.

Regular Season Tie Breaker rules
If 2 teams, then head to head. If still tied, lowest plus minus through season. If more than 2 teams, plus/minus. If then only 2 are tied, head to head.
Round Robin Format
After the 20 regular season, all teams make the playoffs. The top 3 teams play the bottom 3 teams in a 3 game round robin format. After that, the 3rd and 4th team play for the B Final, and the 1st and 2nd play for the A final. Ties are allowed. After the 3 round robin game, ties will be determined by: 1. head to head in round robin (if played, unless more than 2 teams) 2. plus/minus from round robin 3. head to head regular season (if only 2 teams) 4. regular season final standings
OVERTIME IN FINALS
Shootout, NHL format...3 shooters each, alternating, then sudden death shooters.
If you are short players (6 skaters or less), you may use enough spares to make a maximum of 8 skaters (although spares cannot outnumber regulars), getting permission from the opposing team, to play with substitutes, otherwise a 1-0 score will be recorded as a forfeit. You must have 5 skaters and a goalie to proceed with a game. Spares must wear their own jersey (or a similar one), put on inside out, as no points are counted for sparing.
Individuals are responsible for their assigned sweaters, and must return sweaters at the conclusion of season. Failure to return will result in a $50 charge on the following years registration.
or a $50 charge if not returning
