Round Robin Games: In case of a regulation tie, there will have a shootout (best-of-3 format). 3 players will be chosen by each team’s coach at the end of regulation. After first 3 shots, the team can use any player as many times as they choose. 

  1. The home team has choice of who shoots first. 
  2. Should the tie persist, teams will continue 1 player at a time until the tie is broken.. 
  3. See below under “Playoff Tie Games” for rules in playoff games.

Tournament Format: 

'08 DIVISION 

  1. Team will play a 5-game minimum round robin. Plus, Playoffs. Top 16 move on. (Subject to change based on number of teams in division).

'07 DIVISION

  1. Team will play a 5-game minimum round robin. Plus, Playoffs. Top 16 move on. (Subject to change based on number of teams in division).

'06 DIVISION 

  1. Team will play a 6-game Round Robin. Plus, Playoffs. Top 8 move onto Quarter Finals. (Subject to change based on number of teams in division).

TIEBREAKERS: 

If 2 teams are tied in points, the following order applies to determine the ranking of teams. If more than two teams are tied, teams will go through each tiebreaker until ONE team is determined the winner (there is no head-to-head if there are more than two teams tied), once the tiebreaker is broken and one team is the winner, that team advances and the tiebreaker resets to #1 (again, head-to-head only applies for when there is only 2 teams left) for the remaining teams. 

  1. Head-to-Head (if applicable, for only when 2 teams are tied in points) 
  2. Best goal differential formula = Goals For / (Goals For + Goals Against ) 
  3. Least goals against 
  4. Most goals for 
  5. Least penalty minutes during the tournament 

*EXAMPLE: 

Team A, B, C and D all are tied with 6 points. The first tiebreaker in this example would be #2 Best goal differential formula. Team A wins that, so then it resets to 3 teams tied with 6 points. Then, apply the best goal differential formula again, Team B wins that. Then, the last two teams would go to #1 if applicable, if not, then the process would proceed according to the tiebreakers #2 through #6. 

PLAYOFF & PLAY-IN GAME TIEBREAKERS 

If there is a tie game at the end of regulation time during the tournament playoffs, the following overtime rules will apply. 

  1. 20-minute sudden-death period, 3-on-3 plus goaltender overtime. Teams will switch ends to start the overtime period. If still tied, there will be a best-of-3 shootout. 3 players will be chosen by each team’s coach at the end of 20-min. overtime period. After the first 3 shots, the team can use any player as many times as they choose. 1. The home team has a choice of who shoots first. 
  2. Should the tie persist, we will continue 1 player at a time until the tie is broken. 
  3. If there is a player(s) serving penalties at the end of regulation, those player(s) can not participate in the shootout.

***Respect the referees at all times. Should you have a situation you would like to discuss concerning a particular individual, we have appointed a referee-in-chief who is available to you, he does not have the power to change a referee's decision. However, we have advised our refereeing staff to treat coaches with respect and they will expect the same in return. They will not exercise any patience when being sworn, screamed or gestured at. 

The Tournament Director has the final word on the interpretation of the rules.
