2017 Pre-Draft Showcase Rules
There is NO Sudden Death during the first three regular rounds of play.
All games will be played by NCAA Rules.
These will be the Exceptions to the NCAA Rules for all of our Tournaments:
All Teams are allowed one (1) time out. No timeouts in Overtime.
Individual Major Penalty-If a player has been removed from the game for a 5 minute Major Penalty, no player has to serve in the box. The team plays short a man, and when the five minutes are up, they go full strength. They just won’t have their man coming from the penalty box.
For any player(s) involved in a fight and removed from the rest of the game a decision will be made by the Tournament Director, the Head of Officials, and discussion with both coaches, to determine if that player will be allowed to play in his next game.
**The clock will continue to run during a fighting altercation and only allowed to be stopped within the last five minutes of a game due to referee’s discretion.
**All teams are required to have two goaltenders dressed for all games. If a team only has one goaltender dressed the team is not penalized however if that goaltender is unable to continue play due to injury or otherwise, the team is NOT allowed to borrow a goaltender from the other team, from in the stands, or dress another player not in goaltenders equipment. The game would become an IMMEDIATE FORFEIT and the score will remain as it stands.
**All players must wear a face mask.
Junior Teams will be allowed to wear a Half-Shield if they do so in their League during the season. Any player without a Face Mask or a Half-Shield will be removed from the game.
All players must be born in 1997 or after. NO player born in 1996 will be allowed to participate. Eligible ages 1997-2000 (2 players born in 2001 are allowed on a roster if you wish).
**Players can only be rostered on one (1) team. The first team a player starts with, that is his team for the Tournament.
***A player must play at least one game for his team during the first three rounds or he cannot play in the Playoff Rounds. A player cannot play on Sunday in the Playoff Rounds if he doesn’t play in at least one game before the Playoffs begin. NO exceptions.
How to Advance to Sunday’s Playoff Rounds:
Only the Winners of each Bracket advance.
The winners of each bracket are determined in the following manner:
1. Best Record
2. Least Goals Against. For example, if two teams are tied at 2-1, the team that has the LEAST GOALS AGAINST advances. Even if you beat the team that is tied at 2-1 with you. Least Goals Against Counts First.
3. Plus/Minus Ratio- Goals For vs. Goals Against
4. Head on Competition
5. Flip a Coin
