    Basic Tournament Rules (Courtesy: IIHF)

     

    After a single round-robin series in each group, the top three teams from each group advance to the Qualification Round while the fourth-placed team in each group moves to the Relegation Round.

    The Qualification Round consists of two groups (E=A+D and F=B+C) with six teams each, playing a single round robin. The teams carry the points from the Preliminary Round with the teams that they played and advance with. Teams, which have played in the Preliminary Round, do not meet again in the Qualification Round.

    The Quarterfinals will be played cross-over. The first-place team in each Qualification Round group plays the fourth-place team from the other group, while the second-place team plays the third-place team from the other Qualification Round group. 1E-4F, 2E-3F, 1F-4E, 2F-3E. The winning teams advance to the semi-finals.

    Semi-final pairings: Winner 1E-4F vs Winner 2F-3E, Winner 1F-4E vs Winner 2E-3F.

    The winning teams of the semi-final games advance to the gold medal game while the semi-final losing teams play for Bronze.

    Relegation format:

    The four last-placed teams will continue to play in the Relegation Round. The two relegated teams will be determined by round-robin. The best two teams will return to the 2010 World Championship in Germany. The teams promoted to the 2010 World Championship will be the the Division I winners.

     

    Tie breaking formula:

    If two teams are tied on equality of points in the standings, the following tie breaking criteria applies:

    1. Head-to-head (mutual) games between the teams concerned.

    2. Goal differential.

    3. Higher number of goals scored for.

    4. Game Winning Shots competition between the teams concerned.

     

    If three or more teams have the same number of points in the group, then their ranking shall be determined by higher number of points in a special standing composed just from the results of their head-to-head (mutual) games. If the number of points is equal between the three or more teams in this special standing just from the results of their head-to-head (mutual) games, than the same tie breaking criteria as above applies.

    1. Goal differential in the standing between the teams involved.

    2. Higher number of goals scored between the teams involved.

    3. Goal differential from all games played in the group.

    4. Higher number of goals scored from all games played in the group.

    5. Shootout between the teams which are still equal.

    3 Point system and Overtime procedure:

     

    A three-point system will be used. Teams winning in regulation are awarded three points, the loser none. Where there is a tie score in the Preliminary, Playoff and Relegation Rounds, teams are given one point each. A five-minute overtime will follow and, if the score is still tied after overtime, Game Winning Shots will be used. The team winning in overtime or shoot-out is awarded the extra point for a total of two points.

    In case of a tie at the conclusion of regulation time in a Quarter Final, Semi Final and Bronze Medal Game, there will be a 10-minute sudden death overtime period played. In the Gold Medal game there will be a 20-minute sudden death overtime period. The team, which scores a goal during this period is declared winner.

    All Sudden Death Overtime periods are played with four skaters on four.

    If no goal is scored in the overtime period then the Game Winning Shots (GWS) procedure will apply. The following procedure will be utilized:

    If no goal is scored in any overtime period, Game Winning Shots ("shootout") will be used. Three different shooters from each team will take alternate shots, until a decisive goal is scored.

    If the game is still tied after three shots by each team, the GWS will continue with a tie-break shoot out by one player of each team, with a reversed shooting order. The same or new players can take the tie-break shots. The same player can also be used for each shot by a team in the tie-break shoot-out. Only the decisive goal will count in the result of the game.
