Playoffs (Play-In, Round Robin, Consolation): If a game is tied after regulation, a 3 round shootout shall take place. If there is no winner decided, the shootout will continue round-by-round until one team scores and the other does not. Playoff games cannot end in a tie.

Note Regarding "Double Rostered" Players

DOUBLE ROSTERED CUHL PLAYERS:

We are aware that there may be some CUHL players double rostered on AAU "Tournament Teams".  As per the CUHL bylaws, this is not allowed.

 

If a player is found to be on two AAU rosters during the CUHL Regular Season, the offending club shall forfeit all games that the player played in, the club shall be ineligible for playoffs, and the offending player/club shall have to go before the CUHL R&E Committee. The player will be suspended from all CUHL games pending the ruling of the CUHL R&E Committee.

 

Clubs, it is in your best interest to do some investigation of your membership BEFORE regular season games begin. We only want to ensure that all clubs are in compliance with the CUHL rules. We appreciate your cooperation.
