Tournament Rules

  1. USA Hockey rules will govern all play.
  2. The referees will be in charge of the game, and no obscene language or gestures will be tolerated. A “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy will be strictly enforced.
  3. Noisemakers of any kind are not allowed.
  4. Each team will be guaranteed at least three games, consisting of 3 periods of 12-minute stop-time. The ice will be resurfaced at the start of each game, and there will be a 1-minute break between periods.
  5. Running time will start when a team has a 6-goal lead. Stop-time will resume if the lead is reduced to fewer than six goals.
  6. The tournament officials reserve the right to change from stop-time for each period to a pre-determined running time period if the tournament falls behind in time allotment. We don’t anticipate this happening as we will have allowed 1 1/4 hours for each game and resurfacing.
  7. Tied games will be decided as follows: 1-minute rest at the end of the game before the overtime period. One 5-minute sudden death overtime period will be used to determine a winner.

A shootout will be used if the score remains tied at the end of the overtime period. Each team will choose five players with one shot on goal. The team scoring the most goals in the shootout will win.

If still tied after the shootout, a three different players will be chosen, and the shootout will continue. The team scoring the most goals in the second shootout will win. If still tied after the second shootout, each team will choose one player to alternate shots until one team has a goal advantage.
