Should there be a player in the penalty box, they are able to shoot.

PLAYOFF

It is incumbent upon the team officials to confirm with a Tournament representative whether or not their team has advanced beyond preliminary round play prior to leaving the arena following their final preliminary round game.

  • One 30-second timeout is permitted in playoffs.

In the event a Semi or Final game should end in a tie, the tie will be broken in the following manner:

  1. Overtime will be played during Semi, and Final games only.
  2. 5 minute run time sudden death (3 on 3)
  3. 3 player shootout.
  4. Sudden death shootout (both teams get to shoot each round).
  5. For Shootouts the home team has a choice of who shoots first.

TIEBREAKER

Tiebreakers - To determine teams advancing to the playoffs. If more than 2 teams are tied, as soon as the tie is broken, the tie breaker scenario is restarted at the top and reapplied to any remaining ties:

  1. Total Team Points
