On Saturday night one of the hottest teams in the GOJHL- the Ancaster Avalanche suffered two losses to the NIagara Falls Canucks. It started in the game in Niagara Falls on Dec. 5th. which the Avs 'won' 6-5 in a shootout (for fans of the OJHL that happens when two teams are tied after 65 minutes of play). It appears that the Canucks protested the result of the game due to the fact that a delay of game penalty on the Ancaster goalie was missed at 13.08 in the third period with Niagara Falls leading 5-4. With the Canucks being in Ancaster last night that game was taken up with 6.52 left in the third. The now official result of that contest was a 7-4 win for the Canucks who then went on to win the regularly scheduled event 2-1.

Let me get this right, a penalty was missed by the referees and a team protested and the last 7 mins was re played? That is a joke why even have referees

Actually, in the case of an "automatic" penalty that is NOT a referee's discretion call, such as shooting the puck over the glass, if the referees and linesmen do not see it then it IS protestable. If it had been an interference call or something, then no protest could be allowable.

Prior to the game, Ancaster and Niagara Falls replayed the final 6:54 of the third period of their game of December 5, in which the Avalanche goalkeeper changed sticks at the bench, which was a violation of Hockey Canada Rule 3.2 e. A minor penalty should have been assessed against Ancaster, but it was not.

The Ontario Hockey Association Protest Committee ruled that the misapplication of the rule gave Ancaster a distinct advantage in the game. That night, Michael Faliero scored the game winner on the final shot of the shootout as the Avalanche edged the Niagara Falls Canucks 6-5 in the Gale Centre.

Faliero scored twice that night, and added an assist. Blake Luscombe connected for a goal and two assists with Lucas Triemstra and Cole Nagy scoring the other goals. Ryan Knill assisted on three of the Ancaster goals.

The Protest Committee ruled that the final 6:54 of the third period was to be replayed Saturday night, with the score of 5-4 in favour of Niagara Falls, and Ancaster serving a two- minute delay of game minor penalty against the goaltender.

Niagara Falls won the re-played segment and the game by a score of 7-4.

Can someone tell me how changing a stick gives a team a distinct advantage in a hockey game?

Maybe he did it to get his skaters a rest during a faceoff in his own end after icing the puck?

The rule and subsequent penalty isn't for changing the stick. The goaltender is not allowed to go to the bench during a stoppage in play without the referee's permission. If he does, the Coach has an option; replace the goaltender until the next stoppage in play or be assessed a 2 minute minor penalty for Delay of Game.
