Time Outs
Each team will be allotted one 30 second time out. This time-out can be used during regulation time or the overtime period only. (Not in shootout)

Tie Breakers
In the event of a tied game at the end of regulation time the following format will be used to determine a winner.

1) One 10 Minute – Stopped Time 3 on 3 – Sudden Victory Overtime Period. Format is 3 on 3 plus goalies (similar to the NHL format). If a penalty is taken, the teams play 4 on 3. If a 2nd penalty is taken before the first penalty expires, the on-ice strength will be 5 on 3. At no time will a team have fewer than 3 skaters on the ice during the OT period. If still tied a shootout will follow with 5 shooters from each team. If tied after 5 shooters a sudden death shootout will continue until only 1 of the players’ scores.

2) Five Player Shootout – Alternating shots – Home team will shoot first in the shootout. Coaches are to determine the 5 players and Goaltender. Write the numbers on the back of the game sheet. (Penalty Shot rules apply.) (Players serving penalties that have not been completely served, before the end of the overtime period, are not eligible to participate in the shootout.)
