Champions Hockey League

Three on-ice rule changes will be introduced starting with the 2023-24 edition of the Champions Hockey League

"We’ve come up with three simple, but efficient changes that have high potential to add extra excitement to the game,” states Martin Baumann, CEO of the Champions Hockey League. The aim is to develop the sport of hockey adding an extra layer of excitement, but without undermining credibility. The new rules are the following: 

  • Minor penalties are dealt the same as major: a team that caused a minor penalty will remain shorthanded even if the opposing team scores a goal.
  • Serving delayed penalties: a minor penalty will be served even if a goal is scored while a delayed penalty is pending.
  • A shorthanded goal erases the current minor penalty: if a shorthanded team scores, the minor penalty will end.
