The BCHL released details on its Twitter account this morning regarding the January 10th trade deadline, specifically as it relates to times and roster size.
Basically, the details are as follows:
– Rosters must have a minimum of 20 players and a maximum of 22 players.
– The deadline for transactions between separate leagues (i.e. BCHL to AJHL) is 6 pm PST.
– The deadline for transactions between BCHL teams is 8 pm PST.
The BCHL also issued this release today, in conjunction with the Tweet:
The British Columbia Hockey League examined its media policy from last year regarding media access to information on transactions occurring on the Jan. 10 roster deadline. The league has altered the regulation for this season.
The regulation now reads:
BCHL coaches and general managers will be allowed to discuss the details of any team transaction once all players involved in a given transaction have been notified.
Teams caught in contravention of this regulation are subject to a fine.
