TIE-BREAKING PROCEDURES FOR CHAMPIONSHIP SEEDING

Following are the ECAC Men's Hockey Championship policies pertaining to seeding and tie-breaking procedures.

Seeding for championship competition is based on total points accumulated during league contests. In the event teams are tied in the final regular-season standings, the following tiebreakers (listed in order of application) shall be used to determine seeding. (Note: Only League games apply):

  1. Comparison of game results between tied teams (head to head).
  2. Wins.
  3. Comparison of results of games against the top four teams.
  4. Comparison of results of games against the top eight teams.
  5. Goal differential in head-to-head competition.
  6. Goal differential in games against the top four teams.
  7. Goal differential in games against the top eight teams.

In the case of ties among three or more schools, the criteria will be used in order until a team, or teams, is separated from the pack. At that point, the process will begin anew to break the "new" tie. In other words, when a four-way tie becomes a three-way tie, the three-way tie is treated as a "new" tie and the process begins with the first criterion.
