Round Robin Standings Tie Breaker
If two or more teams have an equal number of points, their position in the standings shall be determined by the following tiebreaking format. If one tie-breaker establishes a position for one or more teams, each team is placed in the applicable position. Once a team is placed, the remaining tied teams shall start the tiebreaking process over again at step 1a. The tie-breaker formulas are as follows:

1. The results of the games played between the teams tied in the following order:
a. The points acquired in these games.
b. Differential — Subtracting goals scored against from goals scored in these games, the positions being determined in order of the greatest surplus.
c. Quotient — Dividing the goals scored in these games by the goals scored against (GF divided by GA), the positions being determined in order of the greatest quotient. A quotient involving dividing by zero (0) has higher standing than a quotient dividing by any number other than zero. Where two or more teams have no goals against and the quotient tiebreaker is required, the teams shall be ranked high to low in descending order of “goals for.”
Note: Forfeits-If a team forfeits any of its games, and becomes involved in any tie-breaking formula to determine its eligibility to advance to the next level of play, the team forfeits all games in the round robin play and the games are recorded as 1-0 victories for the non-offending team.

2. If after applying the formulas of 1 a, b, c, the tie still exists, 1b and 1c shall be applied using all games played by the teams tied.  The formulas shall be applied in the order 1 a, b, c and 2.

3. If the above procedure does not break the tie, then their position will be determined by the number of penalty minutes assessed in all games they played.  Their position being determined in order of the least penalty minutes.
