XBS Season 18 Update #2

Hello fellow XBS Members,

Let me start by stating our appreciation for the amount of you that filled out the survey and more specifically the follow up questions. As we continue to try to be transparent with you and listen to the community, your feedback is something that helps us to improve the league and make it more enjoyable.

On the flip side, we are doing our best to be honest with you and let you know as much as we can with what is going on behind the scenes. And as I have mentioned previously, we simply ask for your patience and understanding in return. We are working as hard as we can to get things up and running for Season 18.

With that being said, from our own observations and your feedback, we have decided to make some changes to the rules and wanted to share those changes with you.

Confirmed Rule Changes for Season 18:

  • Consolidate teams into one division.
  • Top 4 teams qualify for the playoffs based on points.
  • Mercy rule is now 10 goals. If you happen to reach 10 your are expected to back off and limit your shots, lay off the forecheck, and not cherry pick.
  • 60 game season with two nights of double headers per week.
  • 7 games per week for 8 weeks and 4 games in the 9th week.
  • 10:00 PM and 10:45 PM start times for double headers.
  • Eliminate the goaltender regular season limit. There will no longer be a requirement for a backup goaltender to play a certain number of games.
  • Preliminary lineup must be entered into the scoreboard 24 hours before a scheduled game.
No Shows:
  • All no shows must be documented in the Owner’s Box for all owners to see.
  • If a player is a no show without any notification, they receive a warning.
  • If a player has 2 no shows in 3 consecutive weeks, the player will be suspended 1 game.
  • If a player accumulates 3 no shows, consecutive or not, the player will be suspended 3 games.
  • Anything over 3, the player must be immediately waived and suspended.
  • If a player is a no show (no post/notice or availability) for 2 consecutive weeks without any warning to owner, player must be immediately waived and suspended.
  • 4 out of 6 teams qualify for playoffs.
  • Playoff qualification based on points.
  • 2+ players dropping will act as a goalie drop and game stops at the next whistle.
  • Both teams will play the remaining time left in the game, from the time of the restart/stoppage.
  • Disconnects must also be logged in the Owner’s Box.

Please take your time and read over the rules carefully. We have done what we feel is best for the league going forward and are looking to have a fun and successful season. Remember these rules will only work if we enforce them as a community. Stay tuned as we continue to update you.
