"After a traditional five-minute, five-on-five overtime, conferences may use either a five-minute, three-on-three overtime period and a shootout or only a shootout to award additional conference points. Conferences are not required to use one of the alternative systems and may end play after the five-minute overtime.

During nonconference regular-season games, these alternative options are not permitted, and a game would end in a tie after the traditional five-minute overtime."
