Playoff Schedules Affected
Feb 5, 2014
We try whenever possible to allow for a 48 hour gap between the regular season and playoffs; however, due to the weather and cancellation of games today some divisions will move into the playoffs the day after the regular season. Please monitor both the regular season and play-off section of BladeNet to make sure you are aware of your potential games. We have tried to "preview" as much of the schedule as possible by sending match-ups to your club reps but must wait until all regular season games are completed before we can populate the play-off match-ups in the Games Centre.

Altered Flood Schedule & Arena List Aug 22 2013 Please note, an Altered Flood Schedule will be used to ensure our programs run smooth and not go over on time. This takes place when two games from Bantam to Midget are scheduled back to back without the appropriate amount of time needed to complete both games.
The first game will follow the regular flood schedule with floods before the start of the game and another in-between the second and third period. As soon as that game ends, the second game in the back to back will begin without a flood and play the first period. In-between the first and second period, the only flood of this game will take place and those teams will play the second and third period on the fresh ice.
Below is an outline of what was described above:
Game 1 (bantam to midget) - Flood
1st period, 2nd period
Game 2 (bantam to midget) - 1st period
2nd period, 3rd period
The following are rinks that will use the above format regularly:
Vaughan Sports Village B
St. Mikes (7:00 pm starts without a flood)
First Schedule Release Aug 15 2013 The first schedule will be released on August 30th and will show the first three weeks of the GTHL season. That means the first three weeks for 'AAA' teams and the first two weeks for 'AA' & 'A' teams. Keep your eyes on this page to find out when the following weeks will be posted online.
GTHL Puck Drop Weekend Aug 15 2013 The Greater Toronto Hockey League's 3rd Annual Puck Drop weekend will be held at York University Ice Sports from September 20th to 22nd.

Tournament / Exemption Form What is a Tournament/Exemption Form?
A tournament form is needed for every tournament you take part in. It acts as an insurance form; it also acts as an exemption form and most importantly if your team is not in a tournament but needs to be exempted it serves this purpose as well. You can use this form for a non-tournament but please remember it would still count as 1 of 3 exemptions.
Exhibition Games All Season Long....How do I get approval for Exhibition Games?
Any time you play an exhibition game you must have your club GM or President submit your game particulars. Your GM needs to know the date, location, time and opponent. The GTHL's Central Registry can then be contacted to arrange officials at 905-951-7946.
What's an Interlock? With the split in the Midget "AA" and "A" age groups to offer a Midget Jr. Division you will now see that two age groups could play an Interlocking type of schedule. These divisions will still compete in a traditional East and West format but will also play some of their games against the other division. The Interlock schedule was chosen as a way to ensure that small divisions would be able to see a wider field of opponents.
White Hockey Pucks Coaches using White Hockey Pucks must collect all of them at the end of their practice. Pucks left on the ice after a practice are difficult for rink staff to see and can (have) cause damage to a zamboni. Coaches should do a white puck count at the beginning and end of practices.
Lambton Arena Players are asked to exit the ice surface from the end-zone doors and not use the centre ice exit door when entering or exiting the ice surface.
MasterCard Centre Policy on Warming up Off-Ice Please be aware that playing with pucks, balls, golf balls, balls of tape etc. is not allowed in the dressing rooms or anywhere around the perimeter of our rinks or lobby of the MasterCard Centre. Failure to comply will result in ejection from the facility. Your co-operation and help with this would be appreciated and would assist in keeping our facility safe and clean.
City of Toronto Policy on Warming Up in the Arena We would like to ask your help during the 2009/2010 hockey season. Could you please speak to your coaches, parents, officials etc. and let them know that hockey playing with pucks, balls, balls of tape etc. is not allowed in the dressing rooms or any where around the perimeter of our arenas. Any cooperation and help you can give us with this would be appreciated and would assist in keeping our arenas clean.

Incorrect Scores What do you do if a score is incorrect?
From time to time a score will be reported incorrectly on the GTHL Web-Site. This may be due to an error on the game sheet or perhaps the score being recorded incorrectly. When this occurs simply fax the game sheet - to the attention of Kevin Hucaluk - to 416-636-2035 and list the cover page as Score Correction. Once we receive this information we can make the appropriate correction. This fax should be sent by the Head Coach or Manager of the team to ensure the office doesn't receive numerous enquiries about the same incorrect score.
