WCHA Introduces Changes to Overtime, Points Structure and Nets

The game format, on-ice product and regular season championship chase in the men's Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) will have a new dynamic moving forward, as the league, Tuesday, announced three pivotal changes to take effect for the upcoming 2016-17 season.

Among the Changes are the introduction of three-on-three overtime and shootout (both if necessary) for regular season league games, a three-point-per-game structure to the league standings and mandatory National Hockey League (NHL) nets in all arenas.

"The WCHA is committed to evolving and adapting however possible to maximize the overall experience for our student-athletes, programs and fans," said WCHA Men's League Commissioner Bill Robertson in making the announcement. "These initiatives will bring a new element of excitement to all areas of WCHA hockey, from opening up more space on the ice, to bringing resolution for each league game and adding another wrinkle to the always-thrilling races for home ice advantage and the MacNaughton Cup. It is a testament to our member institution administrators and coaches that, together, we brought forth positive changes that have proven to be successful, and are in line with what our fans and players want."
