The prescribed procedures and disciplinary actions in the Fundamental Rules and GameBook replace respective, general regulations in the disciplinary code of ÖEHV.

ICE Hockey League Fundamental Rules and the GameBook are the bases for the working format of the ICE Hockey League. On occasions, a potential issue may arise that is not otherwise covered within the rules.

In the event a potential issue may arise in the course of a season, which is not currently covered with the ICE Hockey League Fundamental Rules or ICE Hockey League GameBook (but pertains to), the ICE Hockey League team can request a “special request” through an application and description of the issue.

The special request will be reviewed by the ICE Hockey League with the required recommendations based on expertise and experience.

The final decision will be based on the special request description a team has put forward and supporting information the ICE Hockey League provides with a final decision by a 4-member panel requiring a minimum of a 75% in support vote to be passed. The Special Request Panel will be formed as the following members:

  • ICE Hockey League President

  • ICE Hockey League Sports Committee Chairman

  • ICE Hockey League Justice Commission (2 members)
