Coaches are to ensure the required permission has been obtained from the affiliate player's team management each time the player is needed (including for a practice). Affiliates are only to be used when the team is missing a player due to injury, illness, suspension, or another form of absenteeism. Affiliates CAN be used during Playoffs, but NOT during Minor Hockey Week. An affiliate player may not play more than 5 games after January 10th. Prior to January 10th, a player is not restricted on the number of games they can play provided permission was obtained from the players coach or manager. An affiliate goaltender must actually participate in a game to count as a game played. The timekeeper and/or referee should verify this on the back of the game sheet when it occurs. All other affiliates, named on a game sheet, will have a game charged against their record regardless if they participate in the game or not.
