All games will be played in three 15-minute periods, as opposed to the traditional 20-minute periods.

Each country is allowed to enter 17 athletes each.

Points to each team are awarded as follows:

  • 3 points for a win at the conclusion of regulation time
  • 2 points for an overtime or shootout win
  • 1 point for an overtime or shootout loss
  • 0 points for a loss at the conclusion of regulation
  • If two or more teams are tied in points, the following tiebreaker criteria will be used:

  • points earned in games involving only tied teams
  • goal difference in games involving only tied teams
  • goals scored in games involving only tied teams
  • goal difference in all group games
  • goals scored in all group games
  • If a criterion leaves only two teams tied, then those teams will be ranked based on their head-to-head result.
