There will be no tolerance of referee ABUSE and offenders will be ejected from the game. Referees will be instructed to give a single warning before ejecting any coach or player from the game.

FIVE PUCK SHOOTOUT

  2. For elimination games that are tied at the end of regulation time, the game will be decided by a 3 player versus 3 player SHOOTOUT conducted in PENALTY SHOT format. After 3 shooters, the shootout will move to sudden death with each team getting one chance at a time. A player may repeat only when all the other players on his/her team has had the opportunity to shoot. The first shooter will be determined by a coin toss called by the home team. The winner of the coin toss will select whether they shoot first or second.

PENALTIES

Any player who incurs any combination of 4 penalties or 8 minutes or more in a single game will be immediately ejected from the game. Further, a match, gross, or fighting penalty will result in the player or coach being ejected from the tournament.  Game misconducts will count as a 10 minute penalty.

ADDITIONAL RULES & NOTES

At the end of the game the teams will have the customary handshake and then line up on the blue lines for game MVP presentation. Coaches are asked to choose the player on the opposing team most deserving of the award.

Tournament Organizers reserve the right to make minor adjustments to schedule and rules up until the start of the tournament.
