New 3 point system in AHC this year, 2nd OT will be 3 on 3

Post by NewEnglander »

...if still tied it goes to a shootout. 3 points for a regulation or 1st 5 on 5 OT win and 0 for a loss in either. 1 point each for a tie after OT, then the winner in 2nd 3 on 3 Ot or shootout gets an additional point. This is for league standings only like a few other leagues already do. No ties in league play. I believe the official NCAA PWR counts only wins and losses by the end of the first OT and it remains an official tie if tied after the first OT.

Good decision by AHC. The old saying about a tie is like kissing your sister really rings true and it will add much excitement

Agree, the 3 on 3 in OT should be exciting for the fans. Basically ties suck and are generally boring.

This is what the WCHA and NCHC do. It really means you can make up some ground in the standings fast or bury teams in a hurry with the three points!
