b. If, at the beginning of the third period or at any time during the third period, a team is ahead
by five or more goals, straight running time shall commence on the game clock. If the goal
differential is seven goals at any time during the first or second period, running time shall also
commence. If at any point the margin is reduced to two goals or less, stop-time play shall
resume. This rule is in effect for all games including round robin, playoffs, and championship
c. Warm-up will be 2:30 minutes in length from the time the arena staff has left the ice. Teams
MUST be ready to go at that point. With 0:30 seconds left on the warm-up clock, a buzzer will
sound to indicate that teams should finish their warm-up and be ready to go by the second buzzer
at 0:00.
6. Time-Outs: One (1) thirty (30) second time out per team will be permitted in ALL GAMES.
7. Overtime: Overtime will only be played in playoff and championship games if regulation time produces a tie.
Overtime shall consist of:
a. One sudden-death 5-Minute stop time period with teams playing three (3) skaters plus a goaltender.
b. If still tied a shootout with 3 skaters from each team. The coach of each team will provide the game
officials with the list of these three players immediately following the final overtime period. The
team that scores the most goals with these three skaters will be declared the winner. The HOME
team will decide whether to shoot first or last. Once the order is determined, it will remain the
same for all future rounds of shootout. A player from one team will go, followed by a player from
the other team, and so on until all 3 designated players have gone.
c. If still tied a sudden-death shootout with one player from each team. Each shooter must not have
participated in any prior round of the shootout. Whichever team shot first in the previous round, will
once again shoot first.
d. Repeat step above until no skater remains that has not yet participated from either team. At this
point the shootout will continue from the top of the order. This will continue, with teams moving
down their shooting order, until a winner is decided.
8. Round Robin Standings: Standings will be based on points: two (2) points for a win, one (1) point for a tie,
no points for a loss.
9. Tie-Breaker, Round Robin: If tied in points, standings (seedings) will be determined based on the
following order:
a. The head to head result involving the teams tied (two-way ties only or if one team has beaten
all others they are tied with & those teams tied have all played each other).
b. The team with the most wins in round robin play.
c. The highest ratio of goals for divided by goals for plus goals against [GF/(GF + GA)]
d. The team with the lowest number of penalty minutes accumulated in round robin play.
e. The team with the lowest number of goals against
f. The team with the most number of goals for
g. Coin toss by the tournament coordinator or a designated representative.Note: in the event that three or more teams are tied, there will be no reverting back to a previous tie-breaking
step as each seed is determined. Should two of three teams still be tied after a tie breaker, those two teams will
continue down the list of tie breakers, and the single team will either be eliminated (if they fell below the other
two teams), or be skipped above (if they stood above the other two teams). Furthermore, please note that the
highest ratio tie breaker heavily favors fewer goals against as opposed to higher goals for.
10. Game Misconduct Penalties: Any player or team official receiving a game misconduct penalty will be
penalized at a MINIMUM according to the OWHA code of discipline, but may be penalized further by the
tournament committee or a higher governing body. This will involve at least a ONE-GAME suspension for all
Game Misconducts (other than a minor+GM for CFB that does NOT occur in last ten minutes). (It is
recommended that all out of district teams consult their own code of disciplines to determine if their
suspensions are in excess of what is assessed by the tournament committee - failure to do so could result
in further sanctions by home branches).
11. A player of the game or hardest worker award may be awarded at the conclusion of each game. No player
may win the player of the game more than once during the round-robin portion of the tournament.
12. For playoff and championship games, the home team will be the team with the highest seeding after the
round robin portion in the tournament.
