4 Teams


• Following each team’s first game, winners will play the loser of the other game.

• Winners of each team’s second game will play in the “A” final, the losers of each team’s second game will play in the “B” final.

6 Teams (Round-robin)

• Two groups consisting of 3 teams each. • Each team will play the other two teams in their group.

• Teams will be ranked at the conclusion of round-robin play based on the number of wins. • If all three teams are tied with one win each after round-robin play, the following will be used to determine flights for the final round. a) Goal differential (difference between goals for and against) b) Fewest goals against c) Fewest penalty minutes d) If necessary, flip of a coin

• Each team will play in a final game against the team in the other group with the same ranking. (A, B, or C final)

8 Teams (“A” side, “B” side set up)

• Following each team’s first game, they will continue to play a team with the same record.

(winners vs. winners)

•All teams will play in a final game (“A” final – “D” final) against another team with the same record.

9. Overtime Procedure: All tied games will be decided by a shoot-out. Coaches will list the first three players to participate in the shoot-out by numbering them one through three on the game sheet prior to the shoot-out. Shoot-outs will take place simultaneously from centre ice to each end of the ice. Goaltender cannot be changed during the shoot-out unless due to injury. Should the score remain tied after the first three players from each team have shot, the shoot-out will continue in a sudden death format (one shooter scores, the other does not, the scoring team wins). Coaches will choose from the remaining players on their list. If a team with fewer players exhausts their roster, returning to the first shooter, the opposing coach has the option of returning to their first shooter at the same time. A player serving a penalty at the end of the 3rd period will not be eligible to participate in the shoot-out.

10. Any parent, player, or member of the coaching staff will be ejected (as may the entire team) from the tournament for ANY act of unsportsmanlike conduct, with no refund.

11. Decisions of the Tournament Committee are final.
