After experimenting with the shootout for the 2020-21 season, the ECAC Hockey women’s coaches, by a unanimous 12-0 margin, have voted it down.
This season, if no team scores following 3-on-3 five-minute overtime, games will end in a tie.
Three points will be awarded to teams that win in regulation. Two points will be earned by teams that win while skating 3-on-3. One point will go to teams that lose in the 3-on-3 overtime session. Each team will be awarded 1.5 points if neither team scores during 3-on-3 play.
