Tournament rules are in accordance with Ontario Minor Hockey Association. Teams are expected to comply with the rules of the tournament and the OMHA. This is a sanctioned tournament.

  • All teams are guaranteed 3 games consisting of three 10 minute stop time periods and a 2 minute warm-up from the time the gates are closed. The final game will be 10, 10, 15 - time permitting. This will be determined PRIOR to the start of the game.

  • All teams are required to sign in 45 minutes prior to their first game at the registration table.

  • If games end in a tie, the winner will be determined by an “NHL style” shootout. In the 4 final games, time permitting, there will be an “NHL style” 3 on 3 overtime and shoot-out (see #9 below). Any player serving a penalty at the end of the game will not be eligible to participate in the shoot-out.

  • Any team late for the start of the game will be assessed a delay of game penalty.

  • Time-outs are not allowed by any team.

  • Home team will be designated as per tournament schedule.

  • Tournament Format: 8 Teams (Round-robin)

  • Overtime Procedure: if any of the 4 final games end in a tie, they will be decided by an NHL style 3 on 3, 5 minute run time, sudden death Overtime. Penalties in OT will result in the ‘power play’ team getting an additional player on the ice, while the offending player serves the 2 minute penalty (4 on 3). When the player returns to the ice, OT will continue 4 on 4, until a stoppage in play, at which time 3 on 3 play will resume. 

    If still tied, Coaches will list the first three players to participate in the shoot-out by numbering them one through three on the game sheet prior to the shoot-out. Shoot-outs will take place from centre ice to each end of the ice, with the home team shooting last. Goaltender cannot be changed during the shoot-out unless due to injury. Should the score remain tied after the first three players from each team have shot, the shoot-out will continue in a sudden death format (one shooter scores, the other does not, the scoring team wins). Coaches will choose from the remaining players on their list. If a team with fewer players exhausts their roster, returning to the first shooter, the opposing coach has the option of returning to their first shooter at the same time. A player serving a penalty at the end of the OT period will not be eligible to participate in the shoot-out.

  • Goal Differential Rule (mercy rule): Any game were the score differential is 5 goals or more will result in run time until the score differential returns to less than 5 goals or game has ended.

  • Any parent, player, or member of the coaching staff will be ejected (as may the entire team) from the tournament for ANY act of unsportsmanlike conduct, with no refund.

  • Decisions of the Tournament Committee are final.
