Dangerous, intimidating and illegal acts will not be tolerated and penalized diligently, with emphasis on player skill and movement. A referee may remove an unruly player for the balance of that game.
Points are awarded as follows:
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.
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), 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. Most games won in regulation
3. Best goal differential formula = Goals For / (Goals For + Goals Against )
4. Least goals against
5. Most goals for
6. Least penalty minutes during the tournament
7. Fastest goal in the first game of the tournament
Team A, B, C and D all are tied with 6 points. The first tiebreaker in this example would be #2 Most Games Won. Team A wins that, so then it resets to 3 teams tied with 6 points and all 3 teams have same games in regulation wins. They would then go to #3 Goal Differential. Team C wins on that. Tiebreaker resets again and because there are only 2 teams left you can then use head-to-head if it applies to the two teams remaining.
If there is a tie game at the end of regulation time during the tournament playoffs, the following
overtime rules will apply.
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.
