Note: D-Division follows C-Division rules and guidelines with the following addenda:
D-Division recognizes D-Division veterans first for veteran preference in rostering. C-Division and Core Skills Clinic veterans are given preference over non-OBHL vets. The D-Division board may recommend players register at a higher or lower division, based on skill and competitiveness.
Mentor players in D-Division are defined as players with a rating of 6 or higher (OBHL uses the same rating scale as C-Division). Mentor players are expected to serve as leaders and play facilitators. They are limited to one goal per game.

** as compared to other players rated at the same level as well as to the overall talent level of each division and the OBHL as a whole.
For adult skaters wishing to enjoy hockey at a slower pace, newer players wishing to build their skills in a supportive environment and experienced players who enjoy mentoring others. Players registering for D Division should have some hockey experience and should be able to skate and stop competently. No instruction is provided in D Division. Players with limited hockey experience or who are novice skaters should register for the Core Skills Clinic.
** Division capacity may increase or decrease before or during any season as it is dependent upon number of registrations and available goalies. Season start & end dates as well as overall season length (number of games) may be subject to change before or during the season. Game schedules (days/times) and short notices may be unavoidable due to tournaments, high school games, and other unforeseen events. SP-Ice will do it's best to minimize these occurrences.
