Adult Hockey playoffs 

All adult hockey leagues at Rivertown Sports have playoffs at the end of the regular season to determine the league champion in each division. The Adult playoffs are usually held the week or weekend following the end of the regular season. Dates & times TBD. A trophy is awarded to the Championship team in each division.

Typically, about half of the teams in a division will make the playoffs. Because of the different number of teams in each division, some divisions may have byes and may play up to three games to determine a champion.

In case of standings ties at the end of the regular season, the following tie-breaker criteria will be used to determine playoff spots:
  • Standings points, most
  • Wins, most
  • Losses, fewest (overtime losses count as losses for tie-breaker purposes)
  • Head-to-head competition
  • Goals allowed, fewest - all games combined
  • Goal differential, highest - all games combined
  • Coin flip

Special playoff notes: 
  • All playoff games that end regulation-play as a tie will be settled with as many 11-minute, full strength, sudden death, running-clock overtime periods as necessary.
  • There is an 8-goal mercy rule in effect during all playoff games. The goal that results in an 8-goal differential will end the game.
  • Playoff games will consist of three 11-minute periods.
  • Players must have participated in at least five (5) regular season games to be eligible for the playoffs.
  • Teams must be prepared to start their games up to 30 minutes ahead of schedule.
