Coach's Obligation to Report Major or Expulsion Penalties
Following any game in which an expulsion penalty is assessed, the Head Coaches of both teams are required to report the occurrence using this form within 24 hours of the game, or prior to their team's next game if earlier. This requirement applies to all games including exhibition, league or tournament (including any of local, out-of-region or out-of-province events) in which any of the following occurs:
- Misconduct Penalty - #15 on game sheet
- Match Penalty - #18 on game sheet
- Excessive Penalties: 10 or more minutes against a single player or 30 or more minutes against a team
- Expulsion of any player or bench staff member for any reason.
The form will be automatically submitted to all the appropriate people.
Failure to report these penalties as required may result in the head coach receiving the same suspension as the player, a two game suspension (for excessive penalties for the team).
There is also the possibility that an additional monetary fine will be applied by the Region, Association or League for failure to report.
Whenever a player or bench staff is serving a suspension, it must be noted on the game sheet for each game played by the team during the suspension. The individual's name should be struck out with a note similar to "Suspended: Serving Game 1 of 3" etc. A scan or photograph of each game sheet must be sent to your G&T as soon as practicable following the game. A person who has been suspended may not resume participation until notified by your G&T that the requirements of the suspension have been fulfilled.
On-Ice Official Reporting of Expulsions
The on-ice official assessing any expulsion penalties (match or misconduct) or who observes excessive player or team penalties must submit the on-line Match/Misconduct form as soon as practicable following the game.
