The Referees shall have announced information regarding the legality of an apparent goal to the Official Scorekeeper and will confirm the “goal scorer” and any Players deserving of an “assist”.
→ Rule 78 – Goals
The Referees shall have announced the reason for not allowing a goal every time the goal signal light is turned on in the course of play to the Official Scorekeeper.
This shall be done at the first stoppage of play regardless of any standard signal given by the Referees when the goal signal light was put on in error (if the red goal light is mandatory and in place).
The Referees shall report the name or number of the “goal scorer” and also report any Player deserving an “assist” for that goal. If applicable, the Referees shall report the “goal scorer” only and the Official Scorekeeper, with the assistance of the Statistic staff will confirm the “goal scorer” and any Player deserving an “assist”.
The name of the “goal scorer” and any Player entitled to an “assist” will be announced over the Public Address System. In the event the Referee disallows a goal for any violation of the rules, they shall report the reason for the disallowance to the Official Scorekeeper who shall have the Referee’s decision announced correctly over the Public Address System.
