REGISTRATION: Fee is $215 per player

Registration for this division will be single-player.  Registration will include 18 games plus playoffs, a team jersey, MVP prizes and Championship mugs.  A $75 deposit is required at registration, a refund will be provided if a player is not drafted by a team.  Balance ($150) due by game 6 of the regular season. No refund will be granted for someone that gets drafted and decides not to play.  If a player gets drafted but does not show up for the first 3 games, the draft captain is given the option of replacing that player with another player that was registered with the same player rating.  If a jersey is not returned or returned not in good condition, the cost of the jersey will be added to the player’s BHI account that they will be required to pay.

The Draft:

The Draft will consist of 14 rounds, picking 1 thru 4.  The draft order has been determined by last seasons regular seasons standings.

  • Round 1 – North Stars, Whalers, Nordiques, Golden Seals
  • Round 2 – North Stars, Whalers, Nordiques, Golden Seals
  • Round 3 – North Stars, Whalers, Nordiques, Golden Seals
  • Round 4 – North Stars, Whalers, Nordiques, Golden Seals
  • Any player not picked in the draft will go on the call up list.

Team Rosters:

Each team will have 12 runners and 1 goalie.

  • If a player gets drafted, but does not show up for the first 3 games, the draft captain is given the option of replacing that player with another player that was registered.  The player replacement player can choose to play at a pro-rated amount.
  • All communication between the potential new player must go through BHI.  This will eliminate players from “picking and choosing” who they want to play with/ for.
  • At the end of the regular season, teams can offer ONE player on their roster an extension.  See: Player Extensions

In Season Trades:

Players can be traded to a different team during the season.  

  • The trade deadline will be the 12 game mark.  (before the 12th game is played by each team)
  • All trades are allowed. (Players for Players, Players + Picks)
  • Trades must be posted in the manager group chat tagging a BHI Staff with the 2nd team replying to the message with “Accepted”.
    • Once Accepted, trades can not be reversed unless both teams agree before the trade is accepted by the BHi Management.
  • If a player quits after a trade is processed, the trade will be voided and the player who quits will be removed from the division and replaced by a player of said team’s choice from the pre-season registered list.  The replacement player must be the same rating as the player that quit.

Player Extensions:

Teams may extend ONE  player on their roster for each season.

  • Both player and team must agree.
  • Player extensions must be communicated with BHi Management & the other team captains prior to the draft. 
  • BHi Management will communicate with those players that the captains would like to keep for extension to assure they are fine with the decision.
  • Players may be extended to the same team as long as the captains choose to do so. If a captain chooses to take a new keeper, the player that is no longer their keeper will return to the draft

Captains and Assistants:

Captains will apply and be accepted or denied by the existing captains & BHi Management.  Each captain will be allowed to choose ONE person to be their Asst.  This person will not be required to enter the draft and can be anyone they choose as long as they are in good standing with BHi.  

  • There is no limit on how many seasons someone can have the same Assistant.
  • Assistants can not be traded.
  • Assistants can not be extended if they choose to not be an assistant the following season.

Call Ups:

A team can use a call-up if they are below 10 runners for a game.  A team can use a maximum of 2 call-ups per game.

  • Call-ups can play a maximum of 2 games per team per season.  A violation of this will result in a forfeit of the game with a score of 5-0.
    • All players in attendance will be credited with a game played.
  • A team may ask for a call-up in the BHI Draft League group by using the hashtag #needcallup.  Call-ups should respond to the post to say they are available to play.
