All A.A.H.A. rules will be in effect during tournament play.

Tournament Format:

Point System in round robin play:

The tournament will consist of three round robin games.  Points will be awarded as follows:

  • 2 points for a WIN;
  • 1 point for a TIE; and
  • 0 points for a LOSS.

Tie games will be permitted during round-robin play and will not be broken.  The two teams with the most points at the end of round robin play will be in the Championship Final.  The other two teams will compete in the Consolation Final.

Tie Breakers after Round-Robin Play is completed:

(a) - Tie in standings between two teams after round robin play:

Ties in the standings after round-robin play for all tournaments will be broken as follows:

  1. The winner of the game between the two tied teams;
  2. If that game ended in a tie or the two tied teams did not play one another, the team with the better record of goals for and against (goals for divided by goals against – highest          fraction wins, note: a maximum six-goal differential in any on game will apply); or
  3. If again there is a tie, the team that scored the first goal in a game between the two tied    teams; or
  4. If still a tie, the team with the fewest penalty minutes assessed overall; or
  5. If all else fails, a coin toss.

(b) - Tie in standings between three or more teams after round robin play:

In the event of a tie in the standings between three or more teams, standing will be determined in the indicated order:

  1. The best records of goals for and against as per (ii) above, or
  2. If a tie still exists, then the team with the fewest penalty minutes assessed in round       robin play; or
  3. If all else fails, the tie will be broken by a coin toss.


***If a three or more team tie is extinguished to the point of a two-team tie, revert then to the list of tie breakers as set out in part (a) above.***


Tie Games in Championship and Consolation Finals:

If a Consolation Final or Championship Final Game is tied at the end of regulation time, a "NHL-style" shoot-out will be held to break the tie.  Each team will select three (3) players to take shots on the opposing goalie. Players from each team will alternate. Each shot will begin with the puck at center ice and the player will start his shot at the sound of the referee's whistle.  In the event that the game is still tied after the first initial three players from each team have taken their shots, teams will continue to alternate players to take a shot on a "sudden-death" basis until the tie has been broken. No player may be selected to be a shooter a second time until all players have had an opportunity to shoot once.

Tournament Eliminations:

Any player who receives a misconduct penalty in the last ten (10) minutes of a game will be required to sit out the next game.  In all other cases, MHAC rules apply.

Player Eligibility:

Player amateur cards or “team sheets” are required, and must be on hand if challenged by any team.  Only registered and approved affiliates for your team may be used. Only those players included in the Springbank Classic Tournament Registration will be eligible to play in this tournament.

Teams shall arrive 45 minutes prior to the start of the game.  Team line-ups must be ready and verified by each team 20 minutes prior to the game.

The Tournament Committee, consisting of three members of the host team, will review any disorderly conduct by players or coaches on or off the ice.
