HURRICANE
COMIN THRU...

Regular season games will be simulated Monday through Saturday nights each calendar week with a rest day simulated at the conclusion of Saturday's games - unless otherwise denoted on the schedule below. Each regular-season Sunday will be a “no-sim day” with no games played or simmed and no website update - again, unless otherwise denoted below.

LINES FILES and WAIVER CLAIMS: DUE BY 8pm EST

SIM UPDATES: POSTED BY 10pm EST

The 'Day' number on each calendar date below (when applicable - the calendar will return next season!) represents the 'Day' in your team's schedule. Rest days do NOT count as a 'sim day' on your schedule. There may be changes to what is below - these will be announced as necessary!

OFFICIAL PLAYOFF SCHEDULE

Playoff games for both Pro and Farm will be simmed daily. All teams will play each day (with one rest day simmed after the game) unless victorious or eliminated.

Monday, July 5th: Round 1 begins

Sunday, July 11th: Round 1 concludes

Monday, July 12th: Round 2 begins

Sunday, July 18th: Round 2 concludes

Monday, July 19th: Round 3 begins

Round 3 will conclude once all remaining series are complete. The Stanley Cup and Calder Cup Finals begin on Sunday, June 25th - which means at the latest, the first season of BEARD Hockey will officially conclude on July 31st.

IMPORTANT TRADING NOTES:

Limited trading will be available starting on July 2nd. Because the NHL uses "unwritten rules" when it comes to trading during the playoffs (as to not upstage the playoffs themselves), we will be using a similar measure. From July 2nd through the start of the offseason, teams may make trades involving 70 OV or lower players, along with other usual assets (see the Rulebook for full details).

 

Any player moved during the playoffs will be 'suspended' to prevent teams from using these players in playoff games, as they are not eligible (pro or farm). These suspensions will be lifted on Day 1 of the offseason.

Remember, anyone signed during In-Season UFA talks cannot be dealt until the offseason officially begins. All other trading rules will apply and for clarity purposes, this is still considered the 2020-21 season - the offseason does not officially begin until the date listed below.
