8.     Mercy rule for all preliminary round-robin games: if a team is ahead by 5 or more goals in the third period, straight time will begin until the difference is reduced to less than 4 goals, in which case the clock will revert back to stop time. The clock will only be stopped if an on-ice injury should occur. Penalties incurred during running time will be served as 3 minutes. NO Mercy rule in Semi-final and Championship games.

9.     Preliminary round games will be played on a points-per-period basis with a maximum of 5 points to be awarded in each game.

In the case of a game ending in a tie, an additional point will be awarded to each team. No overtime in preliminary round games.

10.   Tie-breaker: If two or more teams are tied after preliminary round-robin, ties will be broken based on the following order:

                1) Head to head result.

                2) Goal differential – Goals for, divided by goals for plus goals against, highest percentage advances.

                3) The team with the fewest goals scored against.

11.   Individual or team suspensions shall be enforced as per the O.M.H.A. Manual of Operations.

13.   Overtime for Semi-finals and Championship games:

i) Sudden victory, 3 minute stop time to be played 4-on-4 with a goalie. (Penalties assessed during regulation time carry-over into overtime period).

Note: If a penalty is called during 4-on-4, or 3-on-3 if the second overtime period is reached (see below), and it is not a coincidental penalty the non-offending team will add a player (5-on-4 or 4-on-3) and the offending player will go to the penalty box. When the penalty that occurred during 4-on-4 or 3-on-3 is over the penalized player waits to return to the ice until the next whistle, after which the additional player added by the non-offending team is removed and play resumes at even strength (assuming no more penalties have been called).

ii) If still tied after the first 3 minute overtime, a second 3 minute stop time period will be played 3-on-3 with a goalie.

iii) If still tied after the second 3 minute overtime, each team will select 3 players for a shoot-out. All 6 players will shoot once on a rotation basis. The team scoring the most goals will be declared the winner. If still tied the shootout procedure will repeat with a different 6 players until a winner is declared. (NO shooter may repeat until all players, excluding goalies, have shot once).

14.   In the event of a dispute, the decision of the Tournament committee shall be final.
