***In the event of a tie in the Division A Championship and the Consolation Championships games will go into sudden death overtime to determine a winner. The overtime period will be 6 minutes with a regular rotation of kids no double shifting unless the bench warrants. If no winner is determined after the overtime period it will go into a shootout. Three shooters from each team will be chosen, if the tie is not broken three new shooters will be chosen…etc. The shooters can only repeat if all shooters have had a turn.
***Division C is a two game playoff. If the teams split the two games after the last game there will be a shoot out where the whole team shoots once, if there is still a tie the teams select three shooters, if still a tie one shooter per team will be chosen with no repeats until all shooters have had a turn. This will continue until a winner is determined.
