JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Flyers have been disqualified from postseason play after it was determined the team violated North Peace Hockey League rules when it comes to their roster. The league has a deadline of February 10th to carry a 25 man roster, however during game seven between the Flyers and Huskies this past weekend, the team used a 26th player.As a result the Huskies are now credited with a win in that contest and will now meet the Spirit River Rangers in the league final.Flyers general manager Lee Hartman said B.C. teams are allowed to have 30 players on their roster, but because the North Peace Hockey League is based out of Alberta those are the rules that are followed which resulted in the infraction.- Advertisement -“Today we found out that we had used 26 players in our league playoffs. The Alberta teams are only allowed to have 25 players. B.C. we’re allowed 30 so it’s our mistake that we put a 26th guy into the lineup. They’re all our guys, regular players that have played all year for us. It was just our mistake that we overstepped by one player so we defaulted the last game which was game seven which cost us the series,” he said.The team was made aware there was an issue after the final stats from the game were reviewed by the league.With the team scheduled to compete at the Coy Cup in Terrace from March 22-26, head coach Andrew Leriger is giving the team a week off before beginning to prepare for another championship run.Advertisementlast_img read more
