    IceDogs heading home - The IceDogs swept the Frontenacs only for it to be reversed....

    The IceDogs were moving on to the next round against the 67s, or so they thought after putting Kingston away in 4 games. A huge misunderstanding of one particular rule took the wind out of Niagara’s sails and brought the Frontenacs back to life.


    The IceDogs utilized the temporary call up system during the first round as they had roster members on the injured reserve. This was completely fine until those same players stayed on their call ups for a second week. The rule states that players can only be used as a temporary call up once during the duration of the playoffs. Once is defined as a single round or week during the playoffs. Therefore, these players needed to be sent back down to Niagara’s training camp roster following their series with the Petes. Obviously there was a misunderstanding regarding terminology within the playoff rule and they were significantly burned for it.


    The result of the error by management? Games 1-3 overturned and a 3-game suspension for their owner, SmearedPap. Additionally, I believe they had to start the game on the penalty kill. Yikes. That’s a RIP.


    With the new situation for both teams, they had to gather who they could to play the rest of the series before Sunday with Games 5 and 6 slotted for Friday night. It only needed the one game as Kingston defeated Niagara 5-3. Therefore, they’re moving on.


    It’s unfortunate for the players on Niagara as they certainly deserved to move on to the next round. They played well all season. If management would have had those players sent back to TC in time, they could have still used them as ECUs during the series against Kingston and we would be witnessing an IceDogs/67s match up come Sunday.


    What can future management learn from this situation? Perhaps just use the ECU function so you can avoid this potential outcome ever again and only use the temporary call ups if you absolutely must. Idk.



    Good luck to Kingston in the next round.


    Sorry IceDogs, now we don’t know what could have been.​

    I think the media team needs to step it up you guys are slacking theres a lot that the media is not doing for the CHL that needs to be done ASAP. Thats just my opinion on things. But at least they were able to capture the reversal of the Ice Dogs bcs thats a Big one so at least the media was able to capture something for once lol. Sorry for your guyses loss Ice Dogs :(

    no its not on me ppl get traded to me then want a trade right a way without giving me a chance bcs of shit they've heard ppl i dont even know or ever talked to so i keep getting stuck with shitters i cant help that i cant control ppl i got a few ppl banned for it.. Like did u see all the dam trades ive made throughout the season ive changed my team 4 times but there was only 2 reguler roster players that i kept since the bidding. My team was the 3rd period shitters bcs some of our games we would dominate in the first 2 periods then get destroyed in the 3rd it was fucked.

    So why didn't you join the media team and help fix the problem? It's voluntary as far as I know. I was in the Discord and it looked like there was a whole team but they didn't do their job. You aren't accomplishing anything by complaining about something that you can help fix.
