Attn: All A Division Players
For all of you wondering how the playoffs will work with 6 teams in A division this year, here is an overview of the format.
Playoffs will start with 2 groups, comprised of 3 teams each.
Group A - 1st, 4th, 6th
Group B - 2nd, 3rd, 5th
team will play each other once. The top 2 teams from each pool will
move on to the semi finals. In case of a 3 way tie after the round
robin, the tie breakers will be as follows:
1. Goal Differential
3. Regular Season Standings
Each round robin game is worth 3 points.
Regulation Win = 3 Pts
OT / SO Win = 2 Pts
OT / SO Loss = 1 Pts
Regulation Loss = 0 Pts
4 team that move on from the round robin will keep their regular season
ranking, so the highest seed will play the lowest seed and the two
middle seeds will play each other in the semi finals. (For example:
If 1st, 4th, 3rd, 5th move on from the pool stage, then 1st would play
5th and 3rd would play 4th in the semi finals.) Just like years past, the semi finals will be a best of 3 and the finals will be a best of 5.
Any questions, please ask your team rep.
