Full playoffs (7-game series) - 10 teams qualify

Top 10 teams make playoffs, 1st round is a play-in round with 7 vs. 10 and 8 vs. 9

Tiebreaker's are:

*Wins

*Most Games Played

*Head-to-Head vs. Tied Opponent(s)

*Goals Differential

*Goals For Overall

*Goals Allowed Overall

*Goals Scored in Games vs. Tied Opponent(s)

Note: If three or more teams are tied for one spot, we use winning % in common games between all tied opponents as the tie-breaker in lieu of H2H.

 

Preliminary Round / First Round

#7 vs. #10

#8 vs. #9

Quarterfinal Round - after Prelim Round: (Win % determines seed after qualification (re: DNP's, etc.) will be played immediately after the regular season. If not played within 5 days, teams will be replaced.

#1 vs. #8, 9 or 10 (see above)

#2 vs. #7, 8 or 9 (see above)

#3 vs. #6

#4 vs. #5

Semi-Final Round: We will re-seed for each round.

#1 vs. lowest seed left, etc.

Highest Seed gets Home Ice in Finals.

Regular Season DNP's will work like classic (2 point deduction for each DNP). This will heavily affect your playoff standing.

****You must play at least 18 of your games to qualify for playoffs (over 80%)****
