A - Conduct of Games


  1. Official game sheets are prepared by the ÖEHV's Live Scoring System. For this purpose, the clubs' scorekeepers are trained and provided with a manual at the ÖEHV Scorekeeper Training Seminars. The home club is required to provide the hardware necessary for the ÖEHV Live Scoring System (laptop computer with Windows XP or later, Internet Explorer 7 or higher) as well as a printer, to keep the hardware ready for operation and to make the necessary telecommunications connections (full Internet connection) available. The home club's scorekeeper is required to make the following entries in the ÖEHV Live Scoring System:

    1. At least 75 minutes prior to opening face-off:

      • Submission of completed team rosters signed by the responsible club official with a maximum of 22 eligible players and lineups to the scorekeeper / online scorer in the team's dressing room 

    2. 60 minutes prior to opening face-off:

      • Submission of official game sheet to the responsible club official by the scorekeeper / online scorer

      • The responsible official is to confirm the roster shown with his/her signature.

    3. 20 minutes prior to opening face-off:

      • Announcement of the starting six

    4. 10 minutes prior to opening face-off:

      • The responsible officials receive a copy of the official game sheet showing the starting six players for each team.

    5. During the game:

    7. In this context, it is necessary to note explicitly that the official game sheet must also be prepared in handwritten form at all times in parallel to the electronic entry of the data.

  2. In cases when the necessary technical equipment fails or the internet connection is disrupted, the schedule indicated above must be observed as closely as possible. Each home club is responsible to have a hand held stop clock in the event the game clock is experiencing technical difficulties. This hand held stop clock will be considered the official game time until the game is finished or the technical difficulties have been resolved and the game clock is fully operational.

  3. Both original game reports (hand written and online) have to be signed by the Referees and the responsible functionaries and sent to via fax to the following:
