        • The team must make a case that this sub is for scheduling related purposes (so you cant just cut someone you dont like)
    4. Game Night Setup - Club Challenge

      • The home team listed on the site will have home ice for the game play.
      • The official pin number for each team to use shall be listed on the website within the game match up screen. * reference thread link *
    5. Game Night Setup - Forfeit Procedure
      • Teams are given 10 minutes from OFFICIAL GAME; IE 9:10-9:40-10:10-10:40 to ensure their complete six skater roster is in the dressing room, and actively searching for their opponent.
      • Team MUST communicate better one another to ensure that both teams ARE searching
      • To contest a forfeit a stream MUST be provided, including time stamp references as to when the team in question was in the dressing room and when the search began.
        • If there are game connection issues IE "dressing room" errors it is expected for both team to work together, try a new host etc to ensure the game gets played.
        • If one team is currently in overtime or had a delay to their previous game, the team who is waiting and ready is ineligible to take a forfeit. Once their opponent is completed their first game, the ten minute clock will THEN begin from the current time that the team completes their game.
      • Forfeits are put into the system as a 1-0 win
      • IF a team forfeits 25% of their games in this event, ALL of the team's games become forfeits, and EVERY PLAYER listed on the roster will be issued an LGHL BAN which will prevent these players from participating in future events and remove them from current events and leagues until the ban expires or the fine is paid in full.
    6. Game Night Setup - Roster Substitutions
      • Rosters are made up of eight(8) skaters with no positional lock.
      • Teams are eligible to roster sub players in and out of the line as often as required prior to the game beginning.
      • If the game begins, and a player loses connections and cannot return, that player can be roster subbed out of the game.
      • When a roster sub occurs, the team making the roster sub is also eligible to adjust their line. EX: if the Center loses connection and cannot return to the game, the Left-wing from that same game is eligible to move to center allowing the roster sub player to come in and play in the Left-wing position.
    7. Game Night Setup - Player Loses Connection During the Game
      • In the situation whereby a player loses connection, "lags-out", the play WILL continue up until the very next stoppage in play.
      • ALL plays - goals, penalties etc - up until the very next stoppage in play COUNT AND WILL BE HONORED!
      • Once the stoppage has occurred, BOTH TEAMS are to have their goalie leave the game session which will prompt the game to end immediately.
      • Upon the game restarting, at the opening face-off the team in which had a player lose connection to the game shall win the face-off and maintain possession of the puck. That team will retain procession of the puck until the in-game score clock reaches approximately the same time in which both teams left the previous game. At that said time, the team with puck procession is to take a "delay of game" MINOR PENALTY, by dumping the puck over the glass from within their own defensive zone.
      • This penalty is taken due to the fact the team had a player lose connection during the game.
      • Additional Information
        • If the team is ALREADY shorthanded when they have a player lose connect, that original penalty is required to be honored as well. How that occurs is:
          • The team with the player who lost connection will win the face-off upon restarting the game and maintain possession of the puck until the clock reaches the time approximately the time in which the first penalty was taken (reference the box score prior to restarting the game). At that time the player who was in the box for the original penalty will take a delay of game penalty by dumping the puck over the glass in his or her own zone.
          • The next face-off, that same team is required to be allowed to win the draw, then they maintain possession in their own zone until the in-game score clock reaches approximately the same time in which the original game ended. At that time the player SHALL then take a delay of game penalty, by dumping the puck over the glass in his or her own zone prompting a delay of game penalty. This then will honor the powerplays prior to the disconnection as well the powerplay owned due to a player losing connection.
          • In situations whereby a team is ON THE POWERPLAY, and has a player loses connection, upon restarting the game, the disconnection and current powerplay are a wash resulting in the game starting full strength, 5v5.
          • In the situation whereby an equal number of players on both teams lose connection, when the game restarts both sides will remain 5v5.
          • In the situation whereby a player has a penalty shot or breakaway and the goalie in which he or she is coming down on "loses connection" to the game, the player will be awarded a goal upon restarting the game. This is the same call made if a player has a breakaway on an empty net and is tripped. That situation does not result in a penalty shot, it results in an automatic goal.
          • It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that communication between both teams during restarts be constant and documented to ensure that both sides fully understand what is required of their team.
    8. Game Night Setup - Rescheduling a Game
      • Official reschedules from the event staff will be issued ONLY in situations whereby there is outages on Xbox Live or with the EA Servers
      • In situations whereby teams are running behind schedule, or where "dressing room" errors cause games to delay too long teams then can request the have the game moved to the following day.
      • ALL GAMES that are rescheduled ARE TO BE completed PRIOR TO the next official game night. As an example, if a game from Sunday at 10 PM requires to be reschedule, that game SHALL BE replayed PRIOR TO Games beginning on Thursday Night.
      • Sunday reschedule games will be defaulted to Tuesday, and Thursday schedule games will be defaulted to Saturday in situations whereby both sides cannot come to terms on a reschedule time. Default game time will be the exact same time the game was originally scheduled for.
      • If both teams cannot make the reschedule, the game will be marked as a 0-0 game.
    9. Game Night Setup - Inputting Game Stats
      • Reference our "How To" Thread in regards to how stat entry works here on LG.
    10. Game Night Setup - REQUIRED STREAM!
      • Teams are required to stream each and every one of their games!
      • For the final two rounds of the playoffs, the event production team requires the following:
        • a stream of the game that DOES NOT HAVE the in game commentators turned on.
        • a camera angle that is NOT from a goalie
        • a stream without any additional overlays
    In-Game Rules
    1. EASHL Builds - Traits - Height and Weight
      • There are NO EASHL build restrictions for this event!
      • All traits are eligible to be used
      • Any height and weight can be used.
    2. Goal Review
      • ANY GOAL scored in-game that is deemed a goal by NHL 19 SHALL be honored and considered a goal.
      • The event staff IS NOT reviewing footage post game of goals thereby overturning goals that have counted in game.
    3. Game "Looping"
      • Since it is MANDATORY that each team streams their own games, goals scored prior to a the game looping back to a time within the game where that goal does NOT official show on the scoreboard will count!
      • In this situation, the team MUST provide video evidence showing the goal being scored and then the game looping back to a time prior to the game being scored.
    4. Rink Appearance
      • We require each home rink to have a "dark" color for the goal posts
