6.
OVERTIME in final games shall be conducted in a series of 10-minute sudden death overtime periods. During all these 
        overtime periods, teams will play with 3 skaters plus a goalkeeper. Substitutions are allowed. When a penalty would result in
        one team having less than 3 skaters, the penalized team shall play with 3 skaters and the other team shall add one
        (or two) player(s) for the duration of the penalty, returning to the proper number of players at the first stoppage in play
        following the expiration of the penalty.

7. The team manager or coach must check in at the tournament office at the Pembroke Memorial Center one hour before first
        game with their official team roster approved by their District Registrar. Teams may change their roster at this time, provided
        they have acceptable documentation. Teams may register their full team roster. Teams with less than 19 carded players may
        register affiliate players. Affiliate players cannot bring the roster above 19. Teams must have original signed documentation
        for all affiliates.

8. Games may start, and teams must be ready to go on the ice, 15 minutes before the scheduled game time. All warm-ups,
        pep-talks and team rituals shall take place before the team goes on the ice. Teams will be allowed only a 2-minute warm-up
        on the ice prior to the game. Undue delay could result in a delay-of-game penalty against the offending team.

9. If the goal spread between two teams reaches 6 goals or more, running time will be used instead of stop time, as long as the goal spread remains at 6 or more goals. The game returns to stop time if the goal spread reduces to 5 or fewer goals.
10.
Teams are asked to leave their dressing room in a neat and clean condition within 30 minutes of the conclusion of their game.

11. All players will be required to sign the HEO sign-in sheet before their first game in their dressing room.
Team officials must pick up this sheet, have it signed, and returned to the registration desk prior to their first game.

12. Any 5-minute major for fighting will disqualify the player from any further play in the tournament.
13. A maximum of five officials per team are allowed on the bench; no more than six may be registered on any game sheet.
14.
Players must not go on the ice until all arena staff have left the ice, the Zamboni door has been closed, and the referees are
        present. Coaching staff must walk around the boards to the team bench.DO NOT CUT ACROSS THE ICE SURFACE.
        Infractions will incur a bench minor penalty.

15. It is the responsibility of the coach of each team to ensure suspended players are brought to the attention of the organizing
        committee. As the Pembroke Regional Silver Stick is sanctioned under HEO rules, tournament play is regarded as
        meaningful games. Therefore if a player has a suspension and has not satisfied it under their own league rules they will
        not be allowed to play.
