New Suspension Rules - Bantam and Midget
Submitted By Shannon Todd on Sunday, September 22, 2019
After last season saw a record number of Multi game suspensions in the Midget division of the Four Counties Hockey League, a pilot project was run in the playoffs which dramatically decreased the number of suspensions.  The FCHL has adapted new suspension rules for this and future seasons.

These Rules apply to Both Bantam and Midget divisions for the regular season and playoffs.

Any player penalized as the Instigator in any fight will receive and additional 1 game suspension in addition to any suspensions handed out by the OMHA
Any player who receives a suspension for their first fight will receive an additional 1 game suspension in addition to any suspension handed out by the OMHA

Any player who receives a suspension for their second fight will receive an additional 2 game suspension in addition to any suspension handed out by the OMHA

Any player who receives a suspension for their third fight will receive an additional 3 game suspension in addition to any suspension handed out by the OMHA

These Suspensions are not subject to review and will be honored by the OMHA as part of their disciplinary decisions.
