- Length of games
- All games will consist of two 15-minute stop time periods and a 20 minute stop time period.
- If teams are tied after regulation play in the pool schedule, quarterfinals and semi-finals, there will be a 5 minute running time, 3 on 3 overtime period (Winnipeg High School Rules). The game will then go to a 3 player shootout. If the game remains tied, a sudden death shootout will take place (no player can shoot twice unless the whole team has shot once).
- If the teams are tied in the final game, a 10- minute, 4 on 4 sudden death will follow. If the games is still tied, the game will then go to a 3 player shootout. If the game remains tied, a sudden death shootout will take place (no player can shoot twice unless the whole team has shot once).
- There will be a flood after the second period and at the end of each game. Teams will need to be ready to play up to a ˝ hour prior to their game time.
- Teams will have a 5- minute warm-up period.
- Player of the Game
- After each game, players are to line up along the blue lines to recognize the “player of the game” for each team. A small token of recognition has been presented to the players, who are selected by their respective coaches.
- Winnipeg High School Hockey League rules will be in effect for the tournament. Teams will be allowed one 30-second time-out per game.
- The top two teams from each pool, plus 2 wildcard teams, will advance to the quarterfinals. The wildcard teams will be selected based on the team with the highest overall points, after the top six teams. If this is tied, then we will invoke the formula.

- If tied, the record between the two teams is considered.
- If still tied, then the formula (GF – GA)/GF will be applied, from tie breaking sheet.
