Fundamental Rules


The AHL Championship will not be interrupted for the U18 and U20 World Championships or their preparations. The AHL clubs will make the players in question available. In cases where a call-up is disregarded, the player will be considered suspended until the return of the junior national teams. The same regulation applies to players who cancel due to illness or other reasons preventing their participation. In cases of extraordinary sportive circumstances the sports director of the respective National Federation will decide.
