Canadian Hockey League announces Memorial Cup rule modifications



The Canadian Hockey League announced today rule modifications ahead of the 2022 Memorial Cup held June 20-29 in Saint John, N.B.

The modifications include a new point system for the six-game round robin whereby teams will receive three points for a regulation win, two points for an overtime win, and one point for an overtime loss.

Additionally, overtime in the round robin will be played in a 3-on-3 format in 20-minute periods until a winner is decided. Intermissions between the third period and overtime and each additional overtime period will be 15 minutes. There will be no TV timeouts during overtime although a quick scrape of the front of nets and benches will be done at the first stoppage after the 10-minute mark should the overtime continue.

The 2022 Memorial Cup begins Monday at 7 p.m. Atlantic between the Ontario Hockey League champion Hamilton Bulldogs and the host Saint John Sea Dogs.
