If no goal is scored in the Overtime period, then the Penalty-Shot Shootout Procedure will apply. The following procedure will be utilized:
(I) Shots will be taken at both ends of the ice surface.
(II) The procedure will begin with three (3) different shooters from each Team taking alternate shots. The Players do not need to be named beforehand. Eligible to participate in the “Penalty Shot” Shootout will be the four (4) Goalkeepers and all Players from both Teams listed on the Official Game Sheet except as specified in article 3 below.
(III) Any Player whose penalty had not been completed when the Overtime period ended is not eligible to be one of the Players selected to take the shots and must remain in the Penalty Box or in the Dressing Room. Also, Players serving penalties assessed during the “Penalty Shot” Shootout must remain in the Penalty Box or in the Dressing Room until the end of the procedure.
(IV) The Home Team will shoot first.
(V) The Goalkeepers shall defend the same goal as in the Overtime period and remain in the goal when their own team is taking a shot.
(VI) The Goalkeepers from each Team may be changed after each shot.
(VII) The shots will be taken in accordance with → Rule 24 – Penalty Shot
(VIII) The Players of both Teams will take the shots alternately until a decisive goal is scored. The remaining shots will not be taken.
(IX) If the score is still tied after all shots are taken by each Team, the procedure shall continue with a “tiebreak shoot-out”, using the same or new Players. The Team that shot second in the first three penalty-shots will start first in the “tie-break shots”. The game shall be finished as soon as a duel of two Players brings the decisive result. The same Player can be used for each shot by a Team in the “tie-break shoot-out”.
(X) The Official Scorekeeper will record all shots taken, indicating the Players, Goalkeepers and goals scored.
(XI) Only the decisive goal will count in the result of the game. It shall be credited to the Team that scored the goal and charged against the Team that was scored upon.
(XII) If a Team declines to participate in the “Penalty Shot” Shootout, the game will be declared as a loss for that Team. If a Player declines to take a shot it will be declared "no score" for their Team.
