ALL DIVISIONS

 

How to determine GFA Formula

GFA closest to 1.000 advances

Goals for + Goals against = total goals; GFA = goals for divided by total goals.

e.g. 25 + 15 = 40 ; GFA = 25/40 = .625

    

 OVERTIME GAME PLAY

 

If there is a tie after regulation time in the Quarter-Final, Semi-Final or Final game, a sudden victory 5:00 minute stop-time period with 3 skaters vs. 3 skaters (with goalies) will commence. If the game remains tied three (3) players (shooters) from each team will be declared and shall participate in a shootout. Each team will take three shots unless the outcome is determined earlier in the shootout.

After each team has taken three shots, if the score remains tied, the shootout will proceed to a "sudden death" format. No player may shoot twice until everyone who is eligible has shot.  All players are eligible to participate in the shootout unless they are serving a ten minute misconduct or have been ejected from the game for any reason.

When regulation time ends and the teams are 5 on 3, teams will start the overtime 5 on 3. Once player strength reaches 5 on 4 or 5 on 5, at the next stoppage of play, player strength is adjusted to 4 on 3 or 4 on 4, as appropriate. If the teams start the 2nd overtime 4 on 3, once the teams are returned to full strength, the teams will return to 3 on 3 at the next stoppage in play.
