From the SHL Front Office:

At the start of last night’s Spitfires vs Aware game, the starting goalie for Spitfires was not dressed and on the ice prior to the opening face-off. The official rules of the SHL state:

Teams are expected to be ready to play at the scheduled start time. A minimum of 10 skaters and 1 goaltender are required to start a game. If the team fails to have 10 skaters and 1 goalie by the scheduled opening face-off, the game will be forfeited. The team with the required number of players will receive points for a 1 – 0 win. The game will still be played, but a 1-0 win is recorded. Forfeited games will not be re-scheduled.
