Tie Breaking Rules

 

Regulation 13.09

In the event teams are tied for a semi-final playoff position after the Round Robin series is completed, the following procedure shall be utilized to determine the placing of the tied teams:
(a) If two ( 2 ) teams are tied, the winner of the round robin game between those two (2) teams will receive the higher placing. If three (3) or more teams are tied, the team which has accumulated the most points in games against the tied teams will receive the highest placing. The team with the next most points in games against the tied teams will receive the next highest placing, and so on.
(b) Any teams remained tied after (a) then the team with the most wins in the round robin series (note that this includes all games in the round robin series and is not limited to games between the tied teams only) will receive the higher placing and so on.
(c) If any teams remained tied after (a) and (b) have been applied, then the team with the best goal average in games between the tied teams will receive the higher placing and so on. The goal average of a team is to be determined by dividing the total number of goals for and against into the total number of goals for, the team having the highest percentage winning
(d) If any teams remain tied after (a), (b) and (c) have been applied, then the team with the best goal average in the round robin series (note that this includes all games in the round robin series and is not limited to games between the tied teams only) will receive the higher placing, and so on. The goal average of a team is to be determined by dividing the total number of goals for and against into the total number of goals for, with the Team having the highest percentage will be awarded the higher position. (Example: Goals for 10, goals against 4; percentage is 10/14 = .714). In determining the goal average the maximum goal differential that may be applied in any single game shall be seven (7).
(e) If any teams remain tied after (a), (b) and (c), the team that received the least minutes in penalties in the round robin games against the tied teams will receive the higher placing, and so on
(f) If teams are still tied after all previous methods have been applied, then the winner of the playoff position will be decided by the toss of a coin. The respective Vice-President and/or Managing Director will do the coin toss. Teams will not be required to be present.

 

Regulation 13.10

Upon completion of the semi-final series, the following procedure will be used to determine which team receives home ice advantage for the playoff finals:
(a) Home ice advantage will go to the higher seeded team in the round robin series (if both teams had the same standing in their respective round robin series). If still tied then;
(b) Home ice advantage will go to the team with the lowest accumulation of penalty minutes during round robin play (all round robin games count) (NOTE: If the round robin play is split between two pools and each pool does not play the same number of games, then the team with the lowest accumulation of penalty minutes will receive the higher placing. Example: Team A plays three games and has a total of 47 penalty minutes; average would be 47/3 =15.667. Team B plays four games and has a total of 63 penalty minutes; average would be 63/4 = 15.750. Thus Team A would receive the higher placing). If still tied then;
(c) Home ice advantage will be decided by the toss of a coin.
The Island League Vice-President and/or Managing Director will do the coin toss. Teams will not be required to be present.
