The Nipawin Hawks have forfeited their Dec.15th win against the Melfort Mustanges due to using an ineligible player during the Dec. 15th and 16th games versus the Melfort Mustangs.
Section 4.1 of the SJHL Rules and Regulations identities the parameters around this matter:
4.1 No player shall be permitted to participate in a League game unless he appears on that team’s player protected lists. Notification of Protected Players Lists, Certified Players and Affiliated Players are to be completed through the electronic registration process. In addition to the right of the Commissioner to forfeit a game for the use of an ineligible player, the offending team will receive a mandatory fine of four hundred and fifty dollars ($450.00).
