Ice time supplied per team
22 or 23 (223 total needed)
Number of games to qualify for playoffs
Full time – 18, Part time - 12, Goalies - 3
Any player that qualifies under the Veteran rule.

Season Start Date
First available ice time ON or AFTER October 1
Each team may supply more or less than the league requirements. Teams that require ice will pay an average price for each time purchased, and teams that put ice into the pool will get paid at the average price for each ice time.
Each team calculates how they compare to this number:
If supplying slots to the pool – the team is entitled to the difference based on the average cost of all ice put into the pool.
If getting ice from the pool, the teams pay for the ice time needed based on the average price of all ice put into the pool.
In this example, each team needs to supply 24 slots (96 total league slots):
Team A has 25 ice slots and pays $300 per ice time.
Team B has 27 ice slots and pays $325 per ice time.
Team C has 23 ice slots and pays $300 per ice time.
Team D has 21 ice slots and pays $315 per ice time.
Total 96 ice times.
Ice into pool:
Team A puts in 1 ice time @ $300 (total $300).
Team B puts in 3 ice times @ $325 (total $975).
Team C puts no ice into the pool.
Team D puts no ice into the pool.
The average price for ice in the pool is 300+975 / 4 ice times = $318.75 per ice.
Ice out of the pool:
Team C needs 1 ice slot and pays 1 x $318.75 = $318.75
Team D needs 3 ice slots and pays 3 x $318.75 = $956.25
