Mites Tournament Small ice big fun!

February 8 - 10, 2019

Cost: $600.00 per Mite team and $250.00 per Junior Mite Team 

Please join us for the Palouse Youth Hockey Association’s Mite Winter Freeze Tournament and Junior Mite Cross Ice games, February 8 - 10, 2019 in Moscow, Idaho.

Senior Mite games are played 4 v 4 plus a dressed goalie on 2/3 ice with a blue puck, mid-size nets, and 2 officials. There will be no icing and no off-sides calls. In lieu of traditional penalties, immediate substitution for any situation that a referee determines to be aggressive or unsportsmanlike will occur. The referee will explain the offense and direct the player to the bench.

Each game will have a 5 minute warm-up and 3 periods of 16, 14, and 14 minutes respectively and 1 minute intermissions. A buzzer will sound every 2 minutes to facilitate line changes and the subsequent face-off will be at “center” ice. There will be stop clock in the last 2 minutes of play if the game is tied or within one goal. There will be no time-outs during round robin play.

Gretzy Rule: There will be maximum number of goals that a player may score per game. Players may have an unlimited number of assists but scoring during regulation time will be limited to 3 games per player per game. If a player scores more than 3 goals, the goal will not be counted and play will be restarted with a last play face-off. Players are permitted to score in a tie-breaking shoot out during playoff games and/or during the overtime or shoot out of the Championship game even if they have scored 3 goals during regulation time.
