The following format will be used for sudden death overtime.
There will be three segments in the overtime format:
If a Minor penalty has been called with less than 2 minutes left in
regulation time and the score is tied, the minor penalty will carry over
into the overtime and will be served to a maximum of 1 minute (stop time) So
at the start of overtime the penalized team starts with 2 skaters.
If a Major penalty is called with less than 5 minutes left in
regulation time and the scored is tied it will also carry over into the
overtime to a maximum of 2 minutes (stop time). So at the start of overtime the
penalized team starts with 2 skaters.
If a Penalty is called at any point during "player reduction" overtime,
a penalty shot will be awarded to the non-offending team even if that team
is already short handed. If no goal is scored, the overtime will continue
with the above format.
In overtime when a penalty (shot) is called, if the goalie is on the bench he shall be allowed to return to the ice to defend the penalty shot but then immediately returns to the bench if NO goal is scored.
