Adult Hockey playoffs 

Adult hockey leagues at Rivertown Sports have playoffs at the end of the regular season to determine the league champion in each division. 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.

The following tie-breaker criteria will be used to determine playoff spots:
  • Standings points
  • Wins
  • Losses (overtime losses count as losses for tie-breaker purposes)
  • Head-to-head
  • Goals allowed
  • Goal differential
  • Coin toss

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.
  • All players must sign-in at the office prior to each playoff game. A photo I.D. will be required when signing-in. No exceptions.
